Love Hurts 2014

Thursday, February 13, 2014 | 7–9 p.m. (6–7 p.m. VIP reception)
Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Does the saccharine side of Valentine’s Day give you a toothache?

Embrace the bittersweet nature of love with an ’80s-style prom for happy couples, bitter exes, and everyone in between! Squeeze into your fuchsia prom dress or your pale blue tux, spray your hair big, and dance to live music by the ’80s cover band supreme, White Wedding.

Local Brooklyn bitters producer Hella Bitter will craft a totally awesome signature cocktail with Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Beer has been lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery. Compostable cups by EcoPlum.

VIPs can look forward to a talk about the botanical origins of bitters with the Hella Bitter boys and Melanie Sifton, BBG's vice president of Horticulture. There will also be a special VIP cocktail!

Age 21+ only. Snow or shine.

Date: Thursday, February 13
VIP Reception: 6–7 p.m.
Time: 7–9 p.m.
Place: Brooklyn Botanic Garden
