What To Do This Valentine's Day
The How-To Guide to being single, in a couple, or somewhere in between on Valentine's Day
All the single ladies, all the happy couples, all the chocolate lovers, all the yogi ninjas, put your hands up!
Unless you’re Beyoncé, you might not be able to score a spa day at Kura Door for you and your love this close to Valentine’s Day. But who needs all that pampering, when you have each other, right? Wrong!!! Don’t worry, we won’t tell Captain Whiskers that your relationship isn’t complete without a little mid-February fringe.
So, what to do about the panicky feeling that just set in, realizing Valentine’s Day is this weekend and you have no plans? Well, whether your date is a glass of whiskey, a guy you wish you had swiped left on, your hubby of 43 years, or your frisky feline, we have just what you’ve been Googling for! Or if you prefer to avoid what some call, “singles awareness day”, avoid no more!
Here’s your guide to making Valentines a day to be excited about, without having to empty your retirement account.
Pick one (or all) of the three perfectly planned dates and enjoy! Feel free to mix and match, after all, this is your day!
Waffle, Shakespeare, and Wine (or dessert)
The Little America Coffee Shop
Perhaps you want sweet and savory. Our favorite to pair with the waffle is the Southwest Omelet (marinated diced chicken, green peppers, diced tomatoes, green onions, jalapeño peppers, topped with a cream tomatillo salsa).
We also love the cappuccino and hot cocoa. These can be ordered from your server or at the Lobby Lounge (just between the main entrance and The Coffee Shop). The double-sided fireplace, over-sized sofa chairs, free Wi-Fi, and of course the coffee, make The Lobby Lounge the perfect post-waffle spot.
