Guests are encouraged to arrive clad in black-and-white fashions evocative of the 1960s—or another era. VIP ticketholders will enter BBG's new glass-walled Visitor Center for a flute of prosecco, courtesy of Regal Wine Imports, and a tour of the award-winning building before promenading through the Garden to the renowned Palm House—aglow with hundreds of white lights. Guests will select a black-and-white mask as the ball gets under way, and then pick up a traditional 1960s cocktail—featuring the Botanist gin, handcrafted by Bruichladdich. Hors d'oeuvres and light bites reminiscent of the era will be served and a photo booth with brightly colored props set up for guests to enjoy, against the sonic backdrop of a swinging '60s playlist from Handpicked Music. At 8:30 p.m., a special guest will offer homage to the great Capote and his iconic literary landscape of New York City. Soon after, a black-and-white dessert bar featuring historic Brooklyn chocolatier JoMart Chocolate's confections and dark chocolate ice cream sandwiches from Melt Bakery will continue the merriment to the last bite. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=129422 Brooklyn Botanic Garden true DD/MM/YYYY
