Dinners like the one happening at Andalu
on June 7 have a lot to do with why South Park
relishes poking fun at our fair city. On that night, the first Monday in June, 25 percent of the restaurant's dinner profits will benefit the Primate Enrichment Fund, which provides the San Francisco Zoo
's contingent of squirrel monkeys with much-needed toys and puzzles. Diners need only mention "zoo," "squirrel monkeys," or "art show" when making reservations. Why "art show," exactly? The evening will double as a reception for local artist Jenn Wehrt
― with drink specials and a silent auction of a squirrel monkey portrait ― with proceeds, naturally, going towards our local zoo's clever little monkeys.
