    A Special Day for Your Someone Special

    by Casey | Posted on February 8th, 2011

    ATTENTION: Valentine’s Day is Monday, February 14! What have you planned for your significant other? Here are a few suggestions to get your creativity flowing.

    Passion on the Plantation at Shirley Plantation in Charles City explores “the 18th century art of courting which depended on tender prose to woo that special someone.” Anxious to learn how? Stop by any day through February 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to take up a quill and craft your own love letter.

    Couple DiningMake it a Valentine’s weekend at Natural Bridge with special buffets and live entertainment. Special room rates available!

    Brahms’ “Lullaby” makes for a romantic Saturday night date. Enjoy the orchestra in McLean at Oakcrest School.

    A gourmet dinner, dancing and silent auction are what you can expect from the 9th Annual Valentine Gala at Boonsboro Country Club in Lynchburg this Saturday.

    Indulge with a three- or four-course dinner at BISTRO 1888 in South Boston, followed by live Big Band entertainment and dancing at The Prizery Saturday night.

    Go ahead and make reservations (since they’re required) for Prince Michel’s Winemaker’s Dinner Saturday night. It’s an exclusive sit-down with the winemaker to discuss the year’s harvest and what’s on the horizon for this year.

    Hop aboard the Spirit of Norfolk for their special Valentine’s Cruise. The sea voyage includes dinner, entertainment, dancing, and of course, moonlight strolls on the deck. Proposal opportunity, perhaps? Cruises are Saturday and Monday; call ahead to secure your spot!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
