Hot deal combines Botanic Garden membership with chile pepper fest tickets

by -

Want to spend some time wandering through the flowers around here? You could break into some rich person’s townshouse and see if they have a backyard garden. Or, you could go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Of course, you usually have to pay for that, and if you really, really like flowers, then we’ve got a good deal for you: a year’s admission for two AND two guest passes to the Chile Pepper Festival being held in October. Spicy!

“But Brokelyn,” you’re saying out loud to your computer as all your co-workers listen, “I’m just a sad single person, what good will a dual membership do me?” Well for one, you could take your friends for free. You also might meet someone if you actually put yourself out there. Plus your membership will entitle you to skipping the line to get in, extended summer hours, a cocktail party and a bunch of other things. All of which you could bring a date to, dates love flower stuff.

A dual membership usually costs $85, so at $75 for this deal, you’re already coming out ahead. Plus, you get two guest passes for the awesome-sounding Chile Pepper Festival coming up in October, which cost $20 for non-members. So pick two friends who’s friendship you value at or around $20, and bring them with you. At the festival, you’ll be able to set your moth on fire sampling hot sauces and other pepper-based food items being hawked by local spice masters, enjoy bands, watch some fire breathers and generally have a great time. And it’ll be made even better knowing you can hold it over your friend’s head that you got them in for free.
