Brace yourselves, my friends – whether you’re ready (emotionally, etc.) or not, Valentine’s Day is here in all of its pink, sparkly, cute and lovey-dovey glory!
No matter what your relationship status, needs, or desires are this Saturday, Feb. 14, you’ll definitely be able to #finditdowntown for Valentine’s Day:
The Met often runs Dinner and a Movie events, and it’s really fun to go to the old theatre, have a delicious dinner and take in a movie. For Valentine’s Day they’re upping the romance, and showing the now-classic Nicholas Sparks tear-jerker, The Notebook. Tissues will almost definitely be in order.
Speaking of movies…
Feel free to go all Lady & the Tramp at The Old Spaghetti Factory. Pick from the delicious offerings on their special Valentine’s Day set menu, and be sure to book your table ASAP! Perhaps after dinner, your date will continue outside on the Red River Mutual Trail, and checking out some of the cool outdoor activities at The Forks.
If you love vinyl, you might love the Love Vinyl event at The Garrick Hotel on Feb. 14. It’s going to be an all-vinyl, house music party featuring four DJs, drink specials and a bumpin’ dance floor all night!
Need I say more? I know very few humans who couldn’t find love over a slice of pizza. And if they couldn’t before, they should give it another chance at Carbone Coal Fired Pizza because it is just so tasty. And for Valentine’s Day they’re offering a Sip & Savour menu, including wine, salad, pizza and dessert for two.
As sparkly as you like it…
At the Fairmont they’re offering everything from Bleeding Heart cocktails and $50 Bubble Buckets and strawberries in the lounge on Feb. 13 to an eight-course aphrodisiac dinner at the Velvet Glove, to the exclusive, one-of-a-kind Dine and Diamonds package which includes a night stay in the Royal Alexandra Suite, 12-course Chef’s dinner, limousine transfers and a $3000 credit to Birk’s Jewellers.
Remember to pop in at my space on the second floor of Portage Place to make your Valentine for downtown and enter to win all kinds of prizes!
And if nothing else, eat plenty of chocolate this Valentine’s Day! 🙂
