On October 13, the New Orleans Botanical Garden Foundation will host its fabulous al fresco dinner and soiree, Magic in the Moonlight. This year, in addition to the dinner, the next generation of attendees are invited to attend a new, unique ‘party within the party’, called Moonlighters Magic. Below are five reasons you'll want to attend.
1. Support edible education.
The inaugural Moonlighters Magic event will raise funds to support the development of an outdoor teaching kitchen in the herb garden. Your contribution will help future guests of the New Orleans Botanical Garden learn culinary techniques to prepare fresh and sustainable foods.
2. Who doesn’t love a costume party?
In honor of New Orleans’ Tricentennial, Moonlighters Magic will honor the past by encouraging attendees to dress in French Provincial attire. Think corsets, bonnets, poofy cuffs, and elaborate coiffures. If you can’t pull off the look, cocktail attire is preferred.
3. Delicious food. Tasty drinks. Need we say more?
Libations will be flowing all night long with themed drinks available at the event’s open bars. Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts will keep you fueled up all night with delicious offerings from Tommy’s Cuisine, Broussard’s Restaurant, Boulevard American Bistro, and Royal House.
4. You like to dance.
You already know you’re the best dancer. Now it’s time to prove it to everyone else. Starting at 10pm, DJ Heatwave will keep the party going with lively beats until midnight.
5. Deep discounts for groups.
It’s always more fun to party with your friends, and at Moonlighters Magic, it’s cheaper too! Rally a few friends and purchase your tickets together. When you purchase 2-5 tickets at once, they drop to $75 each. Assemble a squad of 6 or more and tickets are just $65. The more the merrier.
