Because you just woke up from a 28-day coma and all of your friends are suddenly acting really weird, ditch them and head to the Cal Academy of Sciences tonight for Zombie NightLife, a booze-fueled, bloody-fun ode to flesh eaters in Golden Gate Park.
Undead awesomeness'll include a crash course in zombie neuroscience from the dudes at the Zombie Research Society, real human brain specimens, and a lecture from an Academy researcher on Zombie Ant Fungus, an actual parasitic bacteria that prompts ants to sorta seem like zombies, rambling to their deaths before biting down on a specific part of a leaf at a specific time, a symptom that all but guarantees that Charles Barkley does not have Zombie Ant Fungus.
Less serious/more fun animated corpse badass-ery includes playable living dead video games (Dead Island), zombie makeovers courtesy of on-site pro special effects makeup peeps, and a dancing-encouraged, photobooth-equipped zombie prom, though you should probably be cautious if someone asks if you want to "suck face".
And to take the edge off, they'll have a three-bar Rage-infected cocktail tour that'll take you through the Lobby, Swamp, and Aquarium, after which you can enter the Zombie Apocalypse Challenge, where you'll have
twenty seconds before the virus turns you very angry and eager to rather rudely bite off everyone's faces to take part in zombie-themed missions.
