We’ve tried to gather the scoop on what to do and where to go this February 14th: delicious chocolates, handmade gifts, local eats, and plenty of opportunity to celebrate with your sweetie. Read on!
shop & play
Woof! Woof! celebrates the holiday with their wildly popular Smooch the Pooch event! Treats for pups and people, sweet savings, and best of all, a charitable cause.
Check out the trifecta of Valentine’s Day must-haves — jewelry, chocolate, and flowers — at The Wooden Midshipman‘s annual chocolate sampling, tomorrow, Feb 12th! Stop by 146 Water Street from 5-8pm to sample the ‘Shipman’s selection of artisanal chocolates, MUSE American Handcrafted‘s Valentine’s Day jewelry picks, and unique floral arrangements from The Greenery.
Across the street, DISH is showing off their sweet, indulgent bath and body line from Red Flower. Non-toxic and deliciously scented, they make the perfect gifts for someone in need of a sumptuous pick-me-up (or just for yourself… you deserve it!). Choose from candles, body wash, fragrance diffusers, lotions, and other goodies. Best news ever? Red Flower is 20% off in honor of the holiday, now through Sunday, 2/15.
eat & drink
Warren’s acclaimed eateries are rolling out special Valentine’s Day menus, so hire a sitter and beat the cabin fever by treating yourselves.
New bistro Metacom Kitchen offers 3 courses for $45 (see menu here). Think Wellfleet oysters, their housemade burrata, and agnolotti with truffles–and that’s just from the appetizer selections.
Eli’s Kitchen is offering the same deal ($45 per person, 3 courses) but with their signature twist: you’ll find a mezze platter, saag “paneer,” and belgian chocolate all sharing menu space. See their menu on Facebook here.
Simone’s (also offering 3 courses for $45, or $68 with wine pairings) is embracing their rustic yet elegant Mediterranean vibe with lots of choices, including fresh seafood, their housemade pastas, wood-grilled entrees, and more. Check it out.
Valentine’s Day is still a Saturday night, after all, so if hanging with friends is more your speed you can still grab a burger and a pint at The Square Peg or CHOMP, take in the show UpStage at 2nd Story Theatre, or try the new bar menu at the recently opened Aruba Steve’s on Main Street.
