Your Weekend Planner To Adults Night Out at Lincoln Park Zoo

Weekend Planner


Fall festivities should bring out the kid in all of us. From dressing in costumes, to hayrides and pumpkin carving. Sometimes there is nothing better than getting together with good friends and enjoying an evening out in the cool crisp autumn air.

The Lincoln Park Zoo is hosting the Adults Night Out: The Great Pumpkin Glow event for those 18 and older on Thursday, October 24 from 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM CDT

Spend your evening strolling along The Great Pumpkin Glow jack-o-lantern trail, getting lost in the corn maze, or browsing the outstanding selection in the pumpkin patch. There will also be cash bars, educational entertainment, and animal enrichment to enjoy. Don't forget to stop by the Wild Things! Gift Shop for some exotic souvenir shopping.

Advanced purchase tickets cost $15 but there may be a limited number of tickets available at the door for $20 (if the event does not sell out in advance).

Looking to spice up the evening?

Start with dinner at Heaven on Seven. This [cash only] Cajun-Creole restaurant is a great way to kick off your night. We recommend the Mardi Gras Jambalaya or the Gumboroni and don't forget to add a jalapeno cheddar corn muffin for the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. To check out their full menu go to heavenonseven.com/menu.

Getting to Heaven on Seven is easy. Just exit Millennium Station and head west on E Randolph street toward N Wabash Ave. Turn left onto N Wabash Ave and enter the Garland Building (111 N. Wabash). Heaven on Seven is on the 7th floor.
