evening's fine offerings.

whiskey while the shuckers by Red Oyster opened the freshest oysters while guests


Sip for the Sea is an exceptional dining experience, enjoying fabulous food

with the outstanding selections of wines while one meanders through Central Park Zoo

listening to the Blue Viper jazz band overlooking the sea lions at play makes for a truly

special night.
