Hearts will flutter, much like the birds at the Rainforest Pyramid, this year as Moody Gardens opens up its unique attraction with a wild Valentine’s Dinner celebration on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11.

Couples will begin their romantic evening with a Rainforest experience with animal encounters from 5-7 p.m. Guests will tour the pyramid while Moody Gardens biologists offer mini presentations about the pyramid’s curious, and sometimes playful, wildlife. They’ll also have a chance to take in and admire more than 1,700 exotic plants as a breathtaking tribute to the world’s vanishing rainforests.

Following the tour, couples will be escorted to a romantic three-course dinner in the Garden Lobby area, complete with a view of the giant river otter exhibit.

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.

Guests will receive a rose and one souvenir photo. During the dinner, biologists will walk around with various animals to show-and-tell. There will also be live musical entertainment and animal presentations.

The Rainforest of Love Valentine’s Dinner package is $250 per couple. RSVP by noon on Feb. 8 by calling 409-683-4368.
