As you’ve probably noticed, I highly recommend and favor the blissful DBG’s Music in the Garden series known to frequent our event calendar. Well our favorite Valley series is back for the new year and invites you and I to discover Arizona’s prized Desert Botanical Gardens along with the musical talents of premiere Valley musicians every Sunday starting January 10 and running until February 21. This heavenly evening makes for a perfect date set in the picturesque Ullman Terrace.
Treat your special someone to a delightful dinner from either the chef-attended food station or at the delectable Patio Café. Then head over to the featured wine tasting area where you may simply taste or purchase your favorites by the bottle. A cash bar is also available for cocktails.
