Valentine’s day is quickly approaching – Do you have plans? You can enjoy an enchanted evening at the Como Conservatory:
An Enchanted Evening A Valentine’s Day Dinning Experience
Saturday, February 14
This Valentine’s Day, don’t just give your sweetheart flowers; take them where they can dine amongst them. Candle-lit tables of two will line the North Garden, Palm Dome and Sunken Garden of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory.
It’s a rare opportunity to be seated in one of the Conservatory’s gardens, with candle light bouncing on the long, sleek windows with dancing shadows cast by the lush vegetation of the North Garden and Palm Dome. The color and scents of the Winter Flower Show transforms you to a picturesque warm summer day of a flower garden. Before dinner, enjoy a glass of wine and stroll through the new Tropical Encounters exhibit and meet an animal visitor.
While enjoying strolling musicians, Lancer Catering will serve a double entrée, gourmet dinner that includes:
SALAD Curly Spinach, Strawberry, Hearts of Palm, Shaved Red Onion and Sugared Walnuts with Honey Tangerine Vinaigrette Freshly Baked Bread Offered with Sweet Butter
