SF Zoo should set easily predictable free-admission day

SF Zoo varies its monthly free-admission day capriciously,
forcing the poor [and other residents] to search its website before deciding to visit.
Why can't free-admission day always be on the SECOND Wednesday of each month?
......................
Dear San Francisco Supervisors:

The San Francisco Zoo should provide a monthly
free-admission day,
on a regular and
easily PREDICTABLE day.

In past years,
the free day was always on
the First Wednesday of each month.
This was simple enough for anyone to remember.

Now, one may go on the First Wednesday,
only to find a sign blocking the way,
announcing
that some future Wednesday
is the free day.

This is painful enough for adults --
but just try explaining it to a disappointed young child.....

If First Wednesdays are sometimes inconvenient,
perhaps because of holidays,
then the Zoo should set the free day
firmly on
the Second Wednesday
of each month.


That's the least they can do for the
residents, voters,
and taxpayers of San Francisco ---
especially for those who
cannot afford the high entrance fees.

We ask the Supervisors
to gently persuade the Zoo administrators
to do the right thing.
[We trust that a word to the wise will be sufficient.]

Asking for respect,

For childless seniors,
SF Zoo membership may be a bargain.

For $70 per year, a senior member
can visit the zoo every day of the year,
and bring along his/her adult guest.

The adult guest doesn't need to be a senior,
merely an adult.
