San Francisco Flower & Garden Show and lend much-needed support to a public rose garden? Check out the Deadheaders' Garden Gala, given by the Friends of the Morcom Rose Garden in Oakland.
The event on Tuesday, March 19, 6 to 9 p.m. is being billed as Woodstock to Rootstock/Tie Dye to Black Tie/Opera to Rock--in other words, anything goes. Enjoy the music of the SF Opera Singers, dance to the tunes of the Sycamore Slough String Band, and bid on a silent auction while you enjoy free champagne, a no-host bar, and hors d'oeuvres.
Tickets are $100 in advance, $125 at the door, and they can be used for entry back into the show for the show's duration. Purchase tickets here.
If you haven't been to the Marcom Rose Garden (located on Jean Street, one block off of Grand Avenue), you should check it out. It's a lovely spot to spend a quiet afternoon and enjoy 7+ acres of beautiful gardens in the midst of a busy urban center.
