The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens brings the “Dining at Dusk” summer series back for 2022. The program will feature a variety of local musical artists, caterers and dessert vendors for a unique experience all summer long. It will take place from 5-7 p.m. Sundays, June 26, July 24, Aug. 28, Sept. 18 and Oct. 2.

Organizers stated, “The ‘Dining at Dusk’ series at the Buffalo Botanical Gardens is back and better than ever. There will be dinner, drinks, live music, desserts and raffles on the front lawn of the Botanical Gardens. ‘Dining at Dusk’ makes for a great date night or a relaxing evening to bond with friends and family. Attendees will take in the sights and sounds of summer surrounded by the historic conservatory and continue to celebrate Erie County’s 200th anniversary. The series has continued to grow and evolve and this year will be welcoming several new perks. Each night there will be a different theme with a different musical artist, varying dinner menus, dessert vendors, and the Buffalo Bubble Bar.”

The first night of “Dining at Dusk,” called “BBQ and Brass,” is June 26. Attendees can enjoy a barbecue dinner from Curly’s Grille, live music from Buffalo Brass Machine, and desserts available for purchase from High Vibe Sweets. Eventgoers are encouraged to wear their “summeriest” outfit for a summer barbecue celebration – whether that be floral shirts and sunhats or flip flops and flamingos.

The next “Dining at Dusk” theme, “Jazz Night,” is July 24. Attendees can enjoy the energy and good vibes of local jazz artist and singer Alex McArthur. Serving up dinner will be Ilio DePaolo’s
