What better way to highlight one of the zoo's most popular exhibits than with a completely "red" themed dinner! You'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of red foods, from cherry-glazed duck breast to red skin potatoes.

Plus, choose from their finest selection of red wines to sip on. All while you enjoy your delicious meal and learn about the Red Pandas at the zoo. Pair the wine with a slice of red velvet cake, and your night couldn't get any better.
