Spend an afternoon taking in the beauty of the Humboldt Botanical Garden
, now in its lush, late summer bloom, as well as enjoying local food, wine, art and music at the garden’s main fundraiser, the Garden Gala
, happening Saturday, Sept. 10
from 1 to 5 p.m.
($100). There among the deep greens and bright colors of the landscape, you’ll find plein air artists painting in their element while the scent of Sammy’s barbecued tri-tip wafts through the air. There’ll be nibbles by Ramone’s Catering, wine and beer from Lost Coast Brewery, and raw and barbequed oysters served with champagne. Sa-wank! Enjoy all of this while getting a gander at the items from the garden's annual online auction. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Get yours at the garden or online at hbgf.org
. For ages 21 and up.
