Last Minute Valentines Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is Monday! Love it or hate it the day comes on quickly after the holidays and leaves many of us without plans. Whether you are wooing a special someone, avoiding the commercialism that defines the day, or just wanting to head out with friends  there are still plenty of options for making the day special.

Valentines in the Garden takes place at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens this Saturday Feb. 12th. They will have special showings, chocolate, and drinks to celebrate and explore.

Valentines Day at the High is also taking place Saturday evening. They are featuring a French theme with art, dancers, and music from 6-10 pm.

If you haven't seen the Dames Aflame here in Atlanta, now is the time. These over the top burlesque performers are fantastic. They are having a special Valentines event Friday and Saturday at Paris on Ponce.

How about a lecture on mating at the Aquarium followed by dinner and the option for an adults only slumber party?  

Most Atlanta restaurants are featuring special Valentine's menus. A few of my favorite are getting in the act.
H. Harper Station- $40 pre-fix 3 course meal.
Amuse! is featuring a $55 pre-fix five course meal.
JCT is offering a $55 per person pre-fix "taste" and three courses meal.
4th and Swift is offering a $75 per person menu.
Anis one of my personal favorites has a $60 per person 4 course selection with Jazz.
Ecco is offering a special $50 per person 4 course meal
Pura Vida is offering couples a choice of 6 tapas and a bottle of wine to share for $85.

For a special treat, for you or a loved one see my upcoming post on the amazing chocolates and French pastries at Maison Robert!
