The lemurs at Brookfield Zoo ate primate biscuits and drank apple juice among a Wrigley Field backdrop for an early celebration of the annual "Toast to Harry Caray," in memory of the legendary Chicago Cubs Hall of Fame baseball announcer.

Lily, Marigold, and Daffodil, three ring-tailed lemurs, and Raul and Jose, two mongoose lemurs, participated in the mini celebration which was held in the lemur's habitat at the Hamill Family Play Zoo.

The primate biscuits were shaped like hot dogs in a bun with Chicago-style accompaniments, including yellow bell peppers to replicate mustard, chopped and sliced apples for onions and tomatoes, cucumbers in place of pickles, and diced green peppers to replicate relish. They also were treated to peanuts and popcorn served in mini Cubs helmets.
