Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Weekend?
Perhaps a romantic dinner at home with your significant other. Or are you going out to dinner this year? Perhaps a romantic walk on the beach, a concert at the Deering Estate, or just some fun in the sun during the day, the beach or the coconut grove art festival. If you don’t live in Miami, what are your plans?
Every year Valentine’s comes and it’s made a big deal by marketers, to buy flowers, and candy and gifts. Some people like to take vacations to celebrate their love. This year we are lucky that it lands on a Saturday. The last two years with my boyfriend Valentine has landed during the week, so we celebrated at home with a nice dinner, candles and wine. This year however, it’s on a Saturday and I don’t know about you, but I want to do something, go somewhere.
People think the economy is doing bad, and it is. However people have to eat, and people are still going out and enjoying themselves, especially on Valentine’s day. My boyfriend called Flemmings to make reservations, we have been wanting to go for a while, so we figured why not on “V” day. Well they were already booked and this was last week. They only had a 5:00pm and a 10:15pm reservation, I figured we can snack on something in the house around 7 to hold us over and we would take the 10:15 but then we weren’t sure if wanted to do that or not. I told him to either make the 10:15 reservations, or call Shibui (Our favorite Sushi restaurant) and make reservations there or surprise me. I don’t care where we go, as long as it’s with him and NOT at home! I don’t know if he finally made reservations or what we are going to do, but I’m sure it will be wonderful either way.
Some people are going to the Coconut Grove Art Festival on “V” Day. I definitely want to go, but since my boyfriend has to work on his project Wheresmypet.com I’m going to go enjoy Sunday with my mom and aunt, while we eat, eat and eat and walk around! 😉
Share your “V” Day ideas….I would love to hear from you.
