A Glorious Garden Gala in Atlanta

Join us to celebrate cooling temperatures, cucumbers, and the Hendrick's Grand Garnisher.

This autumn, you're invited to an unusual soiree at the historic Houston Mill House. Amid watery fountains, glorious gardens, centuries' old Oak trees and the hidden chambers of a 1920s estate, you will be treated to a dazzling evening filled with curiosities and delights. 

At the center of festivities, the Hendrick's Grand Garnisher awaits. An industrial oddity, the colossal vehicle is capable of delicately slicing cucumbers and cruising at speeds of up to 25 mph. Powered by a large diesel motor and a well-dressed gentleman peddling a penny farthing, the Hendrick's Grand Garnisher's peculiar sight is sure to enchant even the most jaded of partygoers. Inquisitive guests are welcome to sidle up to the Hendrick's Grand Garnisher's side to have their cocktails dressed with cucumbers before their very eyes. 

Beyond the Hendrick's Grand Garnisher's exploits, entertainment will abound on the grounds. Music, performances, lawn games, and other levities will take place inside the Houston Mill House's whimsical hallways and out-of-doors, while guests mix, mingle, and imbibe.
