ST. PAUL, Minn. -- 1-2-3-4-5, senses working overtime. That's the sensation diners will encounter when the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory opens its gardens for a truly unique dining experience on Sunday, February 12th, Monday, February 13th & Tuesday, February 14th. So, instead of giving flowers this Valentine's Day, people will have an opportunity to dine amongst them in an unforgettable romantic setting. Candle-lit tables of two will be set throughout the three featured gardens of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, each with its own unique characteristics.
SMELL the flowers in the Sunken Garden & lush vegetation in the North Garden and Palm Dome. SEE vibrant pinks, yellows, reds & purple created by azaleas, cyclamen, veltheimia, amaryllis, cineraria featured in the 2012 Winter Flower Show. HEAR the sparkling, elegant music of The Baroque Trio and the soothing sounds of the water feature in each garden. TASTE a sumptuous, double entrée, gourmet dinner prepared by Lancer Catering and FEEL the warm, humid air inside the cozy confines of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory.
There will be two separate seatings per evening: 5:30pm & 8:00pm. Seating is limited and advance reservations are required by calling 651-487-8250, or reserving on-line at www.comoconservatory.org. The cost for this all inclusive event is $165 per couple, a portion of which is tax deductible.
