Then on Friday, May 3, 2013, it's time for the Whitney Zoo-To-Do, the annual adults-only black-tie Gala event that features a dizzying array of high-end cuisine and premium cocktails from local establishments and dancing under the stars to the sounds of the popular ABBA tribute band, Björn Again until midnight. The patron party begins at 7 p.m. and the partying continues until midnight.closest you can get to seeing ABBA. ABBA will never reform!" -  (Capital Radio, London 1999)

Until April 5, special Early Bird rates are available for Audubon Zoo members, starting at $85 for Whitney Zoo-To-Do and $20 for Kids Zoo-To-Do.
