Dec 7 Night walk the Ragazzi's & Missouri Botanical Garden Glow

Read this carefully:

I have been watching the weather for this night and it is supposed to be very cold.  Also they had a note posted on the Missouri Botanical Gardens website that said the lines were very long with a lot of waiting during the first couple of hours.  They suggest coming after 7:30.  I am not going to change the posted time because some of you might not want to do the dinner.  Because of this I am making a couple of other changes.

1. Meet at RIGAZZI'S on the Hill at 5:30pm for dinner.  4945 Daggett, St. Louis, MO[masked]-4900.  I made reservations but probably will not get confirmation until tomorrow.

2. After dinner we can car pool over to the Garden for the glow.  After the glow we can car pool back to RIGAZZI’S.

If you have any questing you can contact me directly at[masked] or email me at [masked].

For the first time ever, hundreds of thousands of lights will illuminate some of the Garden's most iconic locations this winter at Garden Glow. Walkways will be transformed into sensory light tunnels providing an explosion of visual magic, while traditional candlelight village displays will delight crowds of all ages.

Stroll the Garden at night surrounded by unique lighting installations throughout the grounds.

Warm up around a fire and enjoy seasonal food and drinks. Become part of the show with special Glow gear sold at the Garden Gate Shop.

    I'm trying to purchase my ticket, but it keeps telling me it's for 5:00 PM. 5-9, it says. Am I doing something wrong?

      Oh, gotcha. Thank you, Greg! Unfortunately I couldn't purchase tickets because their terms and conditions link didn't work. The gardens said that wasn't their department, and when I tried to order by phone, they wanted to charge an additional $5 order fee. Sorry to miss it, but have fun!
