Are you still wondering what to do this Valentine’s day? It’s time to think outside of the box, read my suggestions at Journal Newspapers.
Do you want some more ideas?
1. Dinner at Six Seven located in the Edgewater Hotel. With new restaurants opening up on a weekly basis, it is easy to forget some of the city’s favorites. The view of the water here can’t be beat.
The Valentine’s menu includes romantic oysters, butter poached Maine lobster, black truffle and leek bread pudding with haricot vert, caviar butter sauce and even a dessert that has a bit of everything: bleeding heart pavlova, vanilla whip, Pinot roasted strawberries and layered chocolate marquis, chocolate crumb, bourbon caramel.
2. Take your loved one flying with Ifly, indoor sky diving for all ages.
3. Pick up something special for the foodie, custom- made aprons from Skirt Work Crafts, Chef Cameo Roberts takes vintage tees and turns them into these stylish aprons. They scream “love” without the kitsch.
4. Sweep your special friend away to Salish Lodge for a “Love at the Lodge” package. Think jetted tub for two, chocolate fondue and some alone time.
5. If staying home is in the cards, why not make some homemade pasta with your lover? Fresh pasta doesn’t even need a sauce. Toss it with some garlic, Parmigianno Reggiano and some truffle Cream from La Buona Tavola. This tutorial will teach you how.
6. For an underground restaurant experience, check out this 4 course dinner event.
7. Pike Chocofest. Every year, chocolate, beer and restaurants are combined for a night of fun at this event. It is two days before Valentine’s day so you can celebrate twice.
What are your plans for Valentine’s day?
