Waddle Flaps N Taps: A Penguin Bar Waddle on Saturday, April 11, 2015. Join us for a bar crawl waddle from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm featuring access to Power Plant Live!’s downstairs bars, as well as a visit from some of the most interesting Animal Ambassadors from The Maryland Zooincluding Ravens mascots Rise & Conquer, African penguins and more!

“Having visited the Zoo during opening celebrations for Penguin Coast, I immediately realized that the Zoo was not just for people with young children. In fact, I was so inspired by the penguins that I really wanted to find a way to help spread the word about the Zoo to a new generation of people,” said Lily Lee, marketing manager at Power Plant Live! “Penguin Coast is such a great addition to the Zoo and the Baltimore community. We hope this new event will reach young people who may not have yet considered taking a trip to the Zoo with their friends.”

Penguin Coast is The Maryland Zoo’s newest exhibit, bringing zoo guests up-close to African black-footed penguins and white-breasted cormorants in a vivid re-creation of their natural habitat along the coasts and islands of South Africa. While Penguin Coast provides a rich and diverse living environment for the Zoo’s 60+ penguins, there are many places guests can watch the birds, topped off by the twenty-foot tall underwater viewing window where the penguins “fly” through the water.

In support of the Zoo, Flaps N Taps offers three admission options to this exciting new event!

  • General admission tickets are $35 and include domestic beers and call cocktails, a special penguin t-shirt and commemorative cup.
  • VIP admission tickets are $45, which includes all of the above, plus early admission to the event beginning at 2:00 pm.
  • And, for those who are looking for a great deal on TWO events, there is a Combo ticket for $100 that includes a VIP ticket to Flaps N Taps and the VIP Super Sipper ticket to Brew at the Zoo on Memorial Day Weekend.

A portion of the proceeds from each ticket will benefit The Maryland Zoo’s animal care, education and conservation programs. “This is the first time we have had a partnership of this scope with Power Plant

Live! developed by the Cordish Company,” said Nancy Hinds, executive vice president of Institutional

Advancement at The Maryland Zoo. “We are grateful for their support and for hosting this event which will benefit our 1500 animals.”
