Relive the glamour of Truman Capote’s iconic 1966 Black and White Ball—with a floral twist—at this boozy winter soiree hosted by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The BBG’s Linnaean Libation League (the organization’s boozy, botany-loving party planners) invites a masked crowd to mingle over traditional fare from the era—think ’60s gin-based cocktails (such as gimlets with lime cordial and prosecco-topped gin sours) and hors d’oeuvres (like whiskey-spiked mini meatballs). Kick up your heels to a swinging ‘60s playlist and commemorate the evening with a turn in the photo booth.
