The Source's Recommendation On What To Do This Weekend

ALOHA NIGHTS at The New York Botanical Garden


Saturdays, June 2, 9, 16, 23, & 30; July 7 & 21; August 4 & 18, 2018

6:30 – 10:30pm

Feel the aloha spirit during these festive summer evenings. Celebrate the rich cultural artistry of the Hawaiian Islands and enjoy an after-hours viewing of Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i in the Art Gallery and the Conservatory (exhibition open through October 28, 2018). Don your best aloha shirt and join us on the Conservatory Lawn for interactive hula lessons that blend storytelling with rhythm and motion. Illuminated installations by contemporary Hawaiian-Chinese sculptor Mark Chai set the scene for a rotating lineup of live music and lei-making demonstrations. Then unwind and enjoy an array of refreshments for purchase - from poke bowls to our signature cocktail, Passiflora Punch.
