I know it's difficult for the male brain to think of anything that might be happening past this Sunday's Superbowl game. I get that. Valentine's Day is sneaking up, though, and you know I like to give a little oh-so-gentle reminder that might help the fellas out. This is your nudge.
A Valentine's Weekend Getaway at the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland is $214 Thurs thru Sunday. The overnight includes valet parking, rose petal turndown, a bottle of champagne and Trellis truffles. Trellis also has a special menu available on 2/14 for $75/per person. Heaven. 425-284-5800
Remember we have a gem of a performance center right in the middle of Kirkland. Award-winning virtuoso guitarist Andre Feriante will be playing at the Kirkland Performance Center at 7:30 on 2/14. What girl wouldn't melt over a little Spanish guitar playing?? Buy tickets online for $35 (or ask for this to be added onto your package through the Heathman)
The Woodmark Hotel also has a 'Romance Package' or a 'Wine and Dine Your Valentine" offering that will make your sweetie swoon. Bin on the Lake has created a Valentine prixe fix menu for $65/per person. 425-803-5595 for dinner reservations.
Or how about dinner at Volterra? Special Valentine menu here. Never had a meal I didn't love here. 425-202-7201
Thinking of something a little less fancy? Choose a park (if it stops raining or you have a giant umbrella), we have plenty of great ones, and pick up something to go from DeRu Market. Love that place. Extra points for your romanticism on this idea.
