“My Big Date,” a Valentine’s Day getaway in Loveland, Colorado
Loveland, Colorado January 4, 2016 – The brainchild of three Loveland-based, female owned business owners, My Big Date is an opportunity for couples to experience the Sweetheart City on Valentine’s Day.
In its third year, My Big Date represents three various outings on Valentine’s Day weekend in Loveland, Colorado including a brunch and brew tour, a spirits tour and, new this year, a VIP brunch and brew tour.
“Loveland is the perfect place to visit on Valentine’s Day and we’ve put together packages that celebrate some of the best this town has to offer,” said Christine Forster, founder of My Big Day Events, LLC, an event planning company in Loveland.
Each tour is provided transportation on NOCO Short Bus Tours, LLC, a brewery tour service founded by Mechelle Martz-Mayfield. Colorado travel writer and promotor Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer, founder of HeidiTown.com, rounds out the three woman trio behind My Big Date.
“We want to make it easy for folks to enjoy Loveland on Valentine’s Day weekend. We provide the transportation, food and drinks so that guests can just sit back and enjoy the experience and enjoy each other,” said Martz-Mayfield.
There are three packages available this year, and space is limited.
On Saturday, February 13, 2016 there will be two Brunch & Brew packages offered. This package includes a coffee tasting at Loco Artisan Coffeehouse, a beer and brunch pairing at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse and a beer tasting paired with B. Sweet Cupcakes at Loveland Aleworks. Guests are then invited to spend some time strolling Loveland’s Fire & Ice Festival in downtown. Transportation between venues will be provided by NOCO Short Bus Tours, LLC.
Also on Saturday, February 13, 2016, in the afternoon, there are two Spirits Tours available. Guests start their tour with cocktails and tapas at Origins Wine Bar in downtown Loveland and then proceed to Climb Hard Cider for a flight of delicious 10 delicious ciders. The last stop is Spring 44 for a spirits tasting and cupcakes from B. Sweet Cupcakes. Transportation between venues will be provided by NOCO Short Bus Tours, LLC and time will be allotted for guests to experience the Fire & Ice Festival.
The VIP Brunch & Brew tour will be offered once on Sunday, February 14, 2016 only. This package is similar to the Saturday Brunch & Brew tour, but includes extras such as one six-pack per couple of Grimm’s special Valentine’s Day beer, Bleeding Heart, pint glasses from Loveland Aleworks, a bag of LOCO Artisan Coffee’s special Valentine’s Day blend and an additional stop at the Loveland Museum Gallery to tour the Sweetheart City, USA exhibit.
This year, My Big Date has collaborated with Candlewood Suites Loveland to offer a discounted room rate to the first ten couples who book a package.
“I believe that once folks experience Loveland on My Big Date, they will want to come back again and again. We’re just giving them a small taste of what the Sweetheart City is all about and there’s so much more for them to discover,” said Kerr-Schlaefer.
The founders of My Big Date polled last year’s participants and 100% of guests who responded stated that they would take the tour again.
“We think that’s a pretty compelling endorsement of My Big Date,” said Forster.
