Sip and Saunter — Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek

It’s good to see one another again — in person. That’s exactly what a sellout crowd did on the gorgeous grounds of the Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek June 16 during its popular, annual Sip and Saunter event. With sponsorship from Dogfish Head Brewery, featuring beer-and-cocktail tasting stations and catering by Good Earth Market, guests meandered through the meadow, with food and beverage in hand, and enjoyed music by Coastal Keys.
