Restaurants for Valentine’s Day:
For many people, a nice dinner out is on the horizon for Valentine’s Day. Check out some of these highly desirable restaurants in Colorado Springs: Peppertree, Carlos’ Bistro, Rabbit Hole, or Joseph’s Fine Dining. If you are craving some steak with your sweetie, you might checkout The Famous, Cowboy Star (near UCCS), MacKenzie’s or Prime 25 (near Ivywild). Dinner at one of the Broadmoor’s restaurants is a popular destination for Valentine’s Day, and you can seal the romantic deal with stroll around the lake. Manitou Springs is a fun destination with Briarhurst or the very popular Mona Lisa Fondue restaurant. Want something a little more entertaining like watching someone cook for you? Try a teppan grill or hibachi-style restaurant. Ai Sushi, Kura, Jun or Fuji Mountain in Monument.
Family Events for Valentine’s Day:
An event that always gets ooohs and ahhs is the Cripple Creek Ice Festival. Or for your older kids, you might give them a little music education with Yesterday: The Beatles Tribute at the Stargazer’s Theatre on February 15th and 16th.
Events for Singles for Valentine’s Day:
Maybe you’re single? Head over to the Single Mingle at Phantom Canyon on Thursday February 13th from 6-9pm or if your pockets are empty, catch the freebie screening of the classic movie Dirty Dancing with some great popcorn at The Social on Thursday February 13. Or maybe you just want something more fun and active, or plan to hang with friends… how about some Whirly Ball, Shooting at Magnum or Whistling Pines Gun Club. How about a little wine and nature?
