Hearts will flutter, much like our birds, this year as Moody Gardens opens up its Rainforest Pyramid for a wild Valentine’s Dinner celebration on Saturday, Feb. 11.
The romantic evening starts with a Rainforest experience with animal encounters from 5-7 p.m. with guests touring the pyramid while our biologists offer mini presentations about our curious and sometimes playful wildlife. In addition, guests will take in more than 1,700 exotic plants as a breathtaking tribute to the world’s vanishing rainforests, and its inhabitants.
After the tour, a host will escort each couple to their romantic three-course dinner, being served this year in the Garden Lobby area, with a view of the giant river otter exhibit. Guests will receive a rose and one souvenir photo. During the dinner, biologists will walk around with various animals to show-and-tell.
The Rainforest of Love Valentine’s Dinner includes soup or salad, entrée choices of Wagyu Rib Eye Steak with Jumbo Gulf Shrimp, Filet of Grouper with Argentinean Shrimp or Lobster Tail on a Bed of Saffron Cream with Mussels and dessert for two. Guests can also choose between a bottle of champagne or wine. For a complete menu, visit our website
