Each year, hundreds of people flock to The Bogey Bar and Grill to watch a golf tournament they could easily see on television. And it’s not just the tournament that draws a crowd—it’s the atmosphere, the fresh fare, and the live music. The eatery keeps up this excitement all year long: Each day until at least 11 p.m., the kitchen releases its bounty—a menu of burgers, fish and chips, and baskets of fried pickles to go along with craft beers poured fresh from the bar. The Bogey also fills its huge patio space with frequent live music, spurred on by a lengthy outdoor bar that slings drinks to prevent guests from having to smuggle in flasks of vanilla extract.

Customers can select one of Papa Murphy's signature pizzas or customize their 'za ($9.99 for a large with one topping) to a more specific taste, choosing from four sauces, three crusts, and more than 20 toppings.
Mary Kathleen Kelley-Hammond never thought she’d run her own restaurant. Not that it wasn’t in her blood. In 1945, her grandparents assumed ownership of an old pub and renamed it Kelley’s Tavern, both to stake their claim and, presumably, to remember their own name in case another plague of amnesia swept through the United States of Something. Though the tavern stayed in the family for some time, it eventually closed its doors, becoming—ironically enough—an office for Alcoholics Anonymous.
Meanwhile, Mary Kathleen’s years passed by untouched by beer taps or commercial kitchens, at least until she married Dick Hammond, a chef and restaurateur trained at the famous Le Cordon Bleu in France. After successfully running an eatery under Hammond’s name, the couple founded Mary Kelley’s Restaurant & Pub—named for Mary Kathleen’s entrepreneurial grandma—in 1998, finally acquiescing to fate. The rest of the family soon gave in too. Today, Mary Kelley’s son greets restaurant guests, and her own granddaughters work on the wait staff, prepping hand-pattied turkey burgers and freshly broiled seafood from recipes that are, after all, encoded in their DNA.

This year’s concert, The Great American Songbook: Opera Meets Big Band, highlights 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s hits, as well as popular American songs in the style of the Gilded Age, New Orleans jazz, and Broadway musicals. The Rick Brunetto Big Band, a 17-piece orchestra, will pump the playful tunes into the park's fresh air, where they'll float into eardrums and make friends with ossicles. Guided by master of ceremonies Cabot Rea, the opera program will feature renowned works of American composers and cereal commercial jingles performed by talented belters such as Mark Baker, Rebecca Keck, Craig Montgomery, and David Weaver. The zoo’s very own Jungle Jack Hanna will serve as honorary chair of the event, while ensuring any ruckus in the monkey cages is kept to a minimum.
