Remember the 1990s? What an awkwardly great decade, right!? It was phat, it was sweet, it was tight and full of bad questionable fashion. I'll admit it right now, I wore puka shell necklaces and JNCOs.

The hardest decision was which CD to buy, what movie to rent, and whether or not Friday night would include SKATELAND or Rock 'n Bowl. A zoo is throwing a unique party that will include none of the aforementioned activities but it'll still be fun.

Flashback to the 1990s

Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is hosting a totally awesome night you're not going to want to miss out on. If you do you'll be lame.

Some of the fun at this after-hours party will include some of your favorite 90s activities.

  • Double-dutch, playground games, and chalk art
  • Cornhole, foosball, giant Jenga, and giant Connect Four
  • Animal chats and enrichment
  • Rdes on the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel
  • Plenty of spaces to stroll, sit, and sip
  • Cash bars and plenty of food to buy

And what would a 90s party be without a A DJ playing your favorite ’90s jams? There will be a DJ on the 1s and 2s.
