Grin and bear it
Drop everything you’re doing, get in your car and drive to Brookfield Zoo. When you get there, walk directly to the zoo’s new exhibit called Great Bear Wilderness Trail. You can thank me later.
Like Ron Burgundy and his broadcast buddies in ‘Anchorman’, media folks like me from all around Chicago converged on the zoo to get a sneak peek of the bears in their new digs last week. I was actually excited to get the assignment because I had never been to Brookfield Zoo before. This exhibit is absolutely outstanding. It’s worth the price of admission by itself.
Patrons can go face-to-face (separated by 12-inch thick glass windows of course) with grizzly bears who are enormous and not the slightest bit shy. It is, to use the words of one youngster there, “way cool”.
