9 Dates to Gift to Your Valentine
Bacon Me Crazy
You can never have enough bacon -- but on this date, you actually might. Chocolate-dipped bacon, a bacony sandwich, a bacony beverage... and this date is free with membership!
What's the Buzz?
Another free date, featuring decadent, single-serving cake cups of peanut butter mousse, strawberry cayenne jam, or bourbon cake, plus espresso and two more cake cups to take home.
Breakfast in Bed
A three-course breakfast, plus cocktails. Prepared in your home by a chef. And it's crazy-affordable. Sound too good to be true? It's not.
Whet your appetite with creamy tomato bisque and mini grilled brie sandwiches, then sink your teeth into a juicy Quarter Burger and crispy fries dipped in housemade ketchup. Wash it down with wine or beer.
In Due Course
Enjoy a leisurely four-course meal, including oysters, pasta, an entree, and a seasonal dessert selection, plus wine pairings, from the recently-redesigned Olives menu.
At this trendy sister restaurant to Hamptons hotspot Sen Sag Harbor, you'll choose your sake flight -- Cloudy, Mystery, or Sochu -- and a sake expert will be on hand to guide you. Your flights will be paired with hot and cold Japanese tasting plates for two -- and you'll be sake experts in no time.
As apprentices to a master chocolatier at Tache Chocolate, the two of you will learn craft secrets to make chocolate with your favorite flavors, like chili, Earl Grey tea, or hazelnut. After your private lesson, enjoy steaming mugs of Tache’s delicious hot cocoa or spiced ciders, and take home your handmade chocolates as well as recipes and tips to make them at home.
Explore the cutting-edge world of 3D printing at Openhouse Gallery’s 3DEA pop-up, cuddle up in the ShapeShot booth, then watch science fiction become reality as the 3D printer creates a plastic replica of you two. Oh, and there’s chocolate, too.
Pack your bags for a two-night romantic country getaway in the breathtaking Finger Lakes region of New York. Dine fireside at the Chalet, wake up to three-course breakfasts each morning, and enjoy complimentary desserts before turning in each night. During the day, explore the area’s many beauties, from hiking and skiing trails to acclaimed wineries and antique shops.
