On Friday, January 14, 2011 it’s your turn to enjoy the tropics – Des Moines style – by taking part in “Jammin’ in the Jungle” from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Des Moines Botanical Center. As you enjoy the music of Final Mix, a local band that serves up R&B, jazz fusion, blues, hip hop and even some rock ‘n roll, your memories of the snow and winter will melt away.
Enjoy the drink specials of the night – $2.50 Bud Light draws and $5.00 sangrias (one of my favorite drinks) – along with an array of finger foods such as popcorn, quesadillas, and grilled cheese, which will be available for purchase.
This event is a great way to get out of the cold weather, to enjoy some entertaining musicians, and to attend a local event in the Des Moines community.
“When we stay local, we personally invest in your community, our neighbors, and in ourselves,” said Pam Kline, Event/Gift Shop Coordinator at the Des Moines Botanical Center. “Community patronage does big things to help re-energize and enhance the growth of the Des Moines Botanical Center and tourism in Des Moines.”
Tickets are $7.00 in advance or $10.00 at the door. To get tickets in advance (like I did!), call the Des Moines Botanical Center at (515) 323-6290.
