What: "Beastly Brunch" hosted by Houston Zoo's Flock.

Where: Houston Zoo's Masihara Pavilion.

The 411: The zoo's young professionals gathered more than 300 strong — before the cold snap — for the sixth annual benefit where special four-legged guests included Fiesta, the llama, and Norman, the prehensile-tailed porcupine.

DJ Little Martin spun the discs as guests brunched on French toast and Shipley's Do-Nuts. Spirits ran high with the Saint Arnold beer flowing along with the Robert Mondavi champagne mimosas and Bloody Mary's brimming with Bloody Revolution mix and Deep Eddy vodka.

Who: Ted Bowen, Tamar Mendelssohn, Megan Moon, Jordan Claiborne, Brittany Wilkins, Lauren and Gerami Granello, Sam Cole, Brittany Sakowitz, Kelly Law, Kendall and Christopher Hanno, David Rassin and Selena Sykowski.
