Gah! We can't believe we missed this. The Pittsburgh Zoo and the PPG Aquarium offered a discount on admission prices yesterday to people with mullets. Yes, anyone who rocked that business-up-front-party-in-the-back hairstyle at the zoo yesterday saved a bundle and was automatically entered in the "Best Mullet" contest. The winner received a free behind-the-scenes tour.
On Thursday, the Pittsburgh Zoo and the PPG Aquarium will award a $5 discount on admission to anyone wearing a tie-dye shirt.
