Go Beast Mode With Zaytoven At Cambridge Room, Watch The Hood Go Crazy With Tech N9ne At House Of Blues And Stay HUMBLE With Kendrick Lamar At Dos Equis Pavilion.

Everyone loves going out for ice cream — even bears, apparently! But satisfying a bear’s sweet tooth is exactly why the owner of  a private zoo in Alberta, Canada is now facing charges.

You see, Doug Bos’ employees took a one -year-old grizzly bear named Berkley out to Dairy Queen for an ice cream cone. What they didn’t consider is that whenever the zoo wants to take an animal off the property, they have to first notify the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Bos says he’ll plead guilty to all the charges, even though no one was ever in danger during the bear’s  Dairy Queen visit. The worst part? We’re all being punished now because the zoo has removed the video of the Dairy Queen Manager feeding Berkeley ice cream at the drive thru.

So while that may be bummer, the weather is starting to warm up and we can all go get ice cream before or after to all of the concerts and events happening this week, which are conveniently listed below.
