Who says you have to go to the gala to get into the after party? Just as the Spring Gala at the Botanic Gardens winds down, the after party begins! Starting with a cocktail reception at the Visitor Center, the party lures you outside with more drinks, dessert and dancing on the Cherry Esplanade. Dance the night away with DJs Herbert Holler, Cosi and Mark Smooth of the Freedom Dance Party, and enjoy a performance by Delirious Dances. Tickets for the after party start at $60. They can be purchased here–again, you don’t have to attend the gala to attend the after party–and come with an exclusive discounted prix fixe menu at some amazing Brooklyn restaurants: 606 R&D, Barboncino, Bar Corvo, Mayfield, Sunshine Co. and The Vanderbilt.
