Valentines Day is fast approaching and if you’re left with what to do here are a couple of suggestions ..
“Sex On The Table”
247 Smith Street, Brooklyn NY11231
On Saturday, February 14th 2015 @ 7pm
Although Steep at $175 per person
Valentine’s Day “Foodporn” makes it one of my top picks..—
One of the coolest things I found was a company called “Sex On The Table” They offer regularly scheduled aphrodisiac cooking classes as well as the most awesome valentines day inspired dinner.
Their advert states…
Forget the white tablecloths and red roses. This Valentine’s Day, experience ripped denim and studded red leather jackets with a seductively charged menu to match.
We call it Foodporn. With David Bowie and Depeche Mode as our inspiration, we summon the dazzling and sultry veneer of the glam age.
At his latest restaurant venture in Brooklyn, Michelin-starred and all around sexy European ChefFed will team up with amateur Iggy Pop reincarnation and Momofuku alumni Chef Brendan Costello to get down and dirty with 6 courses of bacon, bourbon, kumquats, and hay.
Release your inner hot tramp when we take V-Day to a whole new level. Celebrate love with the gritty eroticism of the 80s and come join us for a once-in-a-lifetime event that has never been done before.
Never has V-Day been cool. We thought it was about time.
I would LOVE to go, if any of you single fellas are up for Foodporn let me know! ;)
Romance Under The Stars
Cullman Hall of the Universe and Hayden Planetarium Space Theater
(Enter at 81st Street)
$125 per person Times: 6 and 9:30 pm
*Another favorite find.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a unique NYC experience only at the Hayden Planetarium! Join us for a cocktail hour, complete with open bar, champagne, and hors d’oeuvres, along with the music of the Josh Rutner Quartet. Then join Hayden presenters Lydia Maria Petrosino and Ted Williams in the planetarium for a view of the night sky. Sit back and enjoy some of the greatest romance stories from the ancient celestial past.
*This awesome event looks like it is already sold out, but there always tickets the night of because people cannot make it for one reason or another.. I would definitely try.
Valentine’s Day Cocktail class at Apothe’ke 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.; 9 Doyers St., nr. Bowery; 212-406-0400; $125
Sure, it’s fun to drink cocktails, but you know what else is fun? Learning exactly what goes into them. At this hands-on class at the renowned apothecary-themed mixology den, you’ll learn about aphrodisiacs and the “sexiest cocktails imaginable,” while leaving with the skills to make three to four drinks on your own. What you do with this knowledge is up to you.
* Valentines Day doesn’t not have not to be expensive, just a little thought, effort, and creativity is all that is required. Everyone I know loves to receive something that has been handmade because it’s been infused and inspired with intention and love.
A great idea is a Valentines Date Night jar
Find a nice glass jar with a lid, even decorate a coffee can or a Chinese take out delivery container, get creative!
Fill the jar and have each little paper inside the jar contains a date idea. Each month pick one out and you have four weeks to make sure to set aside an evening to do whatever is on the card. Have fun with it!
Oh.. And here are the chocolates that I mentioned earlier… If you’re going to indulge, this is it!!
Valentine’s Day Gifts from Leonidas Belgian Chocolates
Located at – 485 Madison Avenue, New York, NY
You can never go wrong with chocolate from Leonidas Belgian Chocolates.
If you’ve never had a piece of chocolate from here you are in for a treat.. Seriously!!
6. Get you and your loved one a Class Package at Plank!!
(For after the chocolate) ;)
But whether you are coupled or flying solo remember,
“The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.”
Happy Valentines Day!!
