If you'd like to spend your Memorial Day weekend strolling through a park and enjoying "specially priced" martinis, you're in luck. Options have been limited, but the Getty's Central Garden will reopen this weekend after being closed since February for maintenance to the walkways and planters.

To celebrate the reopening, the Getty Restaurant will offer specially priced "Grove Margaritas" and "Garden Martinis" on Saturday and Sunday. You can also pick up a copy of "Plants in the Getty's Central Garden" for 20 percent off at the Museum Store and get inspired for summer gardening projects.

The Central Garden features a natural ravine and lush walkways designed by artist Robert Irwin who referred to it as "a sculpture in the form of a garden aspiring to be art."
