SUNDAY PICK | Jungle love: Take your Valentine to dinner at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory


“1-2-3-4-5, senses working overtime. That’s the sensation diners will encounter when the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory opens its gardens for a truly unique dining experience.” Not since Mandy Moore’s cover version has XTC’s classic song been quoted so awkwardly, but the Conservatory staff ain’t whistling “Dixie” when they say that they’re offering “a truly unique dining experience.” On February 12, 13, and 14, the Conservatory will be offering candlelit dinners in the North Garden and Palm Dome. You’ll enjoy a “gourmet dinner prepared by Lancer Catering,” music by the Baroque Trio, and “the soothing sounds of the water feature in each garden.” All this for only $165 per couple. Darling, you had me at “water feature.”
