Don’t worry, we at My Big Day have done the research and leg-work for you and have found some wonderfully romantic ideas for you to consider:
Door 222 food+drink
Celebrated as a delectable dining experience by Feasting Fort Collins, Door 222 offers hand-crafted tapas, dinners, and desserts in an upscale atmosphere in downtown Loveland. This year, in honor of the Sweetheart City’s holiday of Love, Door 222 is presenting a Valentine’s Day, 3-courses of Love. This special meal is $40 per guest with an optional wine pairing for an additional $15. The 3 course special will include a first course with your choice of New England Clam Chowder Soup, Steak Tartare, or a Spinach Salad. The second course includes choices of Braised Beef Short Ribs, Seared Scallops, or a locally crafted Mushroom Risotto. The third course includes a variety of desserts for you and your date to choose from.
Sounds like a tasty option for anyone out on the town on Valentine’s night!
Mo’ Betta Gumbo
If you are after a more relaxed and “down home” kind of vibe for your Valentine’s celebration, you should consider making reservations at Mo’Betta Gumbo. They bring a taste of the Southern Bayou to Northern Colorado in the best way! They have an extensive menu full of the Flavors of the South, including hush puppies, Chicken Gumbo, Po’ Boys, and Crawfish Etouffee! They also have an extensive bar stocked with specialized Moonshine Flavors and Mixers, as well as a variety of Mules and signature drinks.
You will want to make sure to stop by for an after dinner drink and some Beignets at the very least!!
One of our local favorite spots is the Starlight Dessert bar – Loveland’s Sweetest Spot! Known for their enticing desserts and tasty displays, Starlight will be offering a special Valentine’s Dinner this year on the holiday of Love! Parties of 2 can enjoy a 4 course meal for $38, or add some wine for a total of $66! The evening includes appetizer choices, a Strawberry Spinach Salad, three choices for your main dish – including stuffed chicken breasts or Beef Tenderloin in Red Wine Sauce served with roasted asparagus and parmesan risotto. And of course, there will be DESSERT! Starlight will be offering a delicious Raspberry Chocolate Blitz to their Valentine’s diners.
If you can’t make if for a dinner reservation, don’t forget that they have specialty treats and gifts for your Valentine as well – you can purchase a 12” Heart Message Cookie for your love!
And just in case you want to take the leap and say vows with your Love or renew the ones you’ve said before, you can plan to attend our Valentine’s Day Group Wedding and Vow Renewal Ceremony before your dinner reservations!
