Every year the beloved bakery releases their legendary heart-shaped cookies for Valentine’s Day. Here’s their website.

Do *as you wish* by viewing the Princess Bride

The good people at the Capri Theatre in Cloverdale like spoiling us. View the classic comedic romance this Valentine’s Day. This is the Capri’s website. Pro tip: They sometimes sell out at events like this, so get your ticket early!

It’s not one of their classic drinks, but as a former Prevail barista, I promise you the current magicians behind the counter can make this for you. Order it hot or iced. Here’s Prevail’s Insta.

You’ve got four shots to enjoy the Harriott II as she returns to the water for us this Valentine’s Day! Hop aboard on February 13th, 14th, or 15th at 6:30 PM for a regular dinner cruise or go on a late night cruise the 14th at 10 PM. This is the Harriott II’s website.

Form a bond at Common Bond

Montgomery’s local brewery is hosting live music (all ages welcome!) this Valentine’s Day. This is their website.

Raise a glass to some puppies at Leroy

Pints and Puppies is a fundraising event happening at Leroy this year, because humans aren’t the only companions worth celebrating. Grab a drink and enjoy the live DJ and a portion of proceeds will benefit the Humane Society. Here’s Leroy’s website.
