When you think of Valentine's Day, what goes through your mind? For me, it's soupy cards covered in red and pink hearts, cheesy sayings that someone at Hallmark was probably paid not nearly enough to invent, and overpriced chocolates, flowers, and teddy bears.
Whatever Hallmark has done to this holiday, we say p-shaw... not this year! This year, we celebrate the day for all the wonder and glory of love that it gives us. Whether we're gay or straight, young or old, single or coupled up, love is love is love is love is love as our hero, Lin-Manuel Miranda, has told us. And so, this year, we are especially excited to be partnering with Bar & Garden and Ococoa Chocolates for a music, wine, and chocolate tasting entitled "The Colors of Love." We'll have two seatings – 6:00-7:30 and 8:30-10:00 – on Valentine's Day itself. Bar & Garden is a wine, beer, and spirits shop, but they also have a gorgeous annex called B/G/A, which is where we'll be.
