Go primitive with Valentine’s Day at the zoo

Wellington

The move by New Zealand's Wellington Zoo to open its doors for "adults only" activities on the evening of Valentine's Day sounds objectionable, and probably illegal. But actually, in a very unexpected way, it's rather sweet. The ads, including the video below from Saatchi Wellington (which has NSFW audio), hint at the possibility of real monkey business—but actually they're just suggesting you have dinner and drinks there. Now granted, there are about a thousand ways this could all go horribly wrong. But disregarding possible animal maulings or impromptu bestiality, "a candlelit dinner for two, served in your own romantic spot overlooking an animal enclosure," sounds pretty fun. The lucky couple who scores a table facing the chimp enclosure will have stories to tell for years.
