Fondue for the Zoo! At the Melting Pot Houston

April 1 – 30, 2014
 
Being charitable is a whole lot easier when chocolate is involved! This April is Fondue for the Zoo month at The Melting Pot of Houston. Enjoy a four-course fondue dinner for only $35, and the Melting Pot of Houston will give $5 to The Houston Zoo’s Action for Apes campaign to help gorillas and chimps in the wild! Please mention Fondue for the Zoo menu when making reservation.
