Party Animals

THE PARTY Nearly 3,000 wined and dined their way through the San Diego Zoo at the beloved institution’s 33rd annual fete benefiting the Institute for Conservation Research. THE PLAYERS A cast of critters—some led through the crowd on leashes, others sharing the stage with icon Joan Embery—entertained guests, who sampled bites and sips from more than 70 local restaurants and 100 breweries and wineries. THE SCENE Things got wild in the Riviera VIP lounge, designed by The Floral Department, where Bice chef Mario Cassineri served up Italian-inflected hors d’oeuvres. Photography by Tim Hardy,
