Sawtooth Botanical Garden Offers Gimlets in the Fall
John Balint and Gina Wolcott were among those enjoying Walk & Wine. People praised it as a relaxed opportunity to get out and see friends from a distance before summer’s end.

The Sawtooth Botanical Garden will stage one final outdoor, physically distanced social affair this fall.

Gimlets in the Fall will be held from 4 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, and will close out the garden’s 25th year celebration.

Attendees will receive a meal cooked up by Al’s Sustainability Food Truck with vegetarian options available. They’ll also be treated to huckleberry vodka and other signature gimlets and cocktails served up by local vodka purveyors, non-alcoholic beverages and live music by Dr. Archie and Doghaus.

Gimlets in the Fall is the second of two events designed to replace the garden’s annual gala fundraiser Gimlets in the Garden. It follows on the heels of a Walk & Wine event, in which people strolled from one bite and one sip to another.

They enjoyed the full expanse of the garden as they did and took the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for retailer gift cards, vodka and other items.

The garden will raffle off a 2020/21 Challenger Ski pass worth $2,279 from Sun Valley Resort at Gimlet in the Fall. Tickets are $50, limited to 100 and on sale now.

Tickets to Gimlets in the Fall are $85 per person, available at www.sbgarden.org.

The nonprofit Sawtooth Botanical Garden is located at Gimlet road and Highway 75, four miles south of Ketchum.


The Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s nigh-blooming cereous, Charlie, has been showing off. Greenhouse doors will be unlocked for those who wish to view it. Viewers are asked to bring a headlamp to help navigate the way from vehicle to the greenhouse and back and to keep the gate closed so elk don’t chomp on the foliage.
