Hear Tales Of The Destinies With Baby Metal At House Of Blues, Experience Dallas’ Artistic Spirit At Array And Meet The Shadow People With Dr. Dog At Granada Theater.

Nothing like a souvenir to commemorate great day at the zoo, right? Maybe you’d take a stuffed version of an animal you saw that day or a T-shirt.

But if you were visiting the Detroit Zoo a few weeks ago, you would’ve headed home with a bucket full of poo’. Not a bucket full of cute Winnie the Pooh. A literal bucket of poop.

As a part of zoo’s Greenfest, the first 1,000 patrons to visit the zoo on April 14 would be able to commemorate their visit by taking home a five pound bucket of crap.

The animal hospital inside the zoo gets its energy from an anaerobic digester. They put organic waste, (i.e., poop) into the machine and it extracts methane that is then converted into power. The nutrient-rich fertilizer is just a smelly, convenient by-product that can then be used as fertilizer for the patrons’ gardens and compost piles.

And speaking of useful shit, below we’ve put together a list of the best things you can do in Dallas all week! While you may not be able to take home a bucket of poop from the concerts and events this week, you can take home great memories and maybe some T-shirts. Cheers!
