Mark your calendars for “Fiesta in the Jungle,” Primarily Primates’ annual fundraiser dinner and silent auction, which returns this year on Saturday, Aug. 20! monkeyfinal The event will be held at San Antonio’s Green Vegetarian Cuisine at 200 E. Grayson St. (at the Pearl)—from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $50, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the work at Primarily Primates. The first glass of beer or wine is included in the price of the ticket, and a cash bar will be provided. The silent auction will feature fine art, beautiful jewelry, electronics and much more. There will also be a live band so don’t forget to wear your dancing shoes. This year’s menu will reflect the Mexican theme. The fiesta on your plate will include seasoned chips and salsa, vegetable and beef-less fajitas with rice, beans and fresh guacamole and monkey cupcakes.
