Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this summery Wednesday.

Welcome to the zoo after dark, when the animals break out the mixed nuts and the pinochle deck, pour themselves a few stiff ones, light up a Camel and relax. But seriously — in this new event, families can hit the zoo in the twilight hours while checking out the animals, enjoying a hundred yard dash for kids 10 and under, family friendly activities, and relaxing at an outdoor showing of "Alvin and the Chipmunks - The Road Chip." 6-9 p.m. $7/$5 children. Potter Park Zoo, 1301 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Lansing. (517) 483-4222, potterparkzoo.org.
