Giveaway: Sunflowers & Sangria at the Botanical Gardens


For my money there isn’t a more delicious, refreshing, and thirst quenching summertime beverage than a frosty cold glass of…beer. Sorry. I like beer.

But my #2 most delicious, refreshing, thirst quenching summer beverage has to be a cold glass of authentic Spanish red wine sangria.

On July 15th, the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks will have plenty of both of my top two summer beverages at their annual Sunflowers and Sangria event. Add some free appetizers, one of my favorite Fayetteville bands in Shout Lulu, and a warm summer evening at the Botanical Gardens, and you’ve got the makings of a big ol’ bucket of badicality.

Tickets are $20 for non-members and $15 for members, and tickets will be available at the gate. Sangria, beer, and light appetizers are included in the ticket price. Sweet.

Even better news is that we scored two tickets to give away to the event. Try to win them.

How to enter
Sunflowers and Sangria has a nice ring to it. Maybe it’s the alliteration, or maybe it’s the combination of two very summery items that seem to go well together, but I have a feeling that Flyer readers can come up with even more clever plant/adult beverage combinations. Car Bombs and Carnations. Papst and Petunias. You get the idea. Leave your combo in the comments, and you’re entered to win.

What you’ll win
You’ll win two tickets to Sunflowers and Sangria on July 15th at 6:00 pm at the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks.
