Arbor Eat 'Em

Our loverly friends TK and EL invited us out with their son to catch a little bluegrass music at the Bartlett Arboretum. Despite my Southern roots, I've never been big on bluegrass, but we had a fabulous time. You can bring a picnic, take in a little nature and enjoy some live music for a reasonable price: $10/person and less if you're a member (for evening events) and only $6/person for daytime.

It's hard to find activities that entertain both adults and kids, but this one did the trick. There were tons of children playing frisbee and taking death defying leaps off rocks while the adults chilled out and admired the sincere commitment to bluegrass demonstrated by that one guy's 3 foot long beard - wow!

Bartlett has a nice set of summer concerts set up for the season. You can enjoy the event Sunday mornings from 10-11am until August 7th or Sunday evenings from 5-7pm.

Prefer a little refreshment? They also feature summer cocktail event in the veggie garden on July 21st as well as a tropical garden event on August 18th.
