KXL Plant Nerd Night featuring Mike Darcy

Mike Darcy's KXL Plant Nerd Night is an immensely popular event. Entrance to the event is free, but plan to arrive early, lines form well in advance of the doors opening for this horticultural love-fest. Each year a small group of specialty growers are invited to Plant Nerd Night where they are each allowed to make a brief presentation where they tell us about the newest & coolest offerings from their nurseries.
The format of the evening typically goes something like this; doors open at 6 pm, shopping from 6 pm to 7 pm, presentations by participating vendors from 7 pm to about 8 pm with the chorus (see below) providing the "half-time" entertainment, and more shopping is typically available after the presentation. Participating nurseries this year are:
Once again the Chorus of the Goddess Flora will be performing at this year's event. I've blogged about this fun group that I perform with before. This time I'm linking to some YouTube footage of the group. The two-part video was shot at last year's Nerd Night. (Thanks Jim!) Lighting & sound are a bit sketchy, but you get the gist. We have a blast.
