Neighborly Love

Who doesn’t love a little bit of local flair? Small, indie boutiques are fraught with hidden treasures for your sweetie, and one of Denver’s best hamlets for shopping locally is Historic Highlands Square. This V-Day, The Perfect Petal is upping the ante by offering 20% off your order when you show a receipt from any local business. How about a little gourmet goodness from St. Killian’s, a bit of shoe shopping at True Love, some western flair from Cry Baby Ranch, or the perfect accessory from the Petal’s sister store, Posh? Any of these (and more) work, and you’ll get a sweet discount off fab February flowers. Show us your Love at The Perfect Petal, Ring 303.480.0966 or www.theperfectpetal.com.

Boulder Bound

St Julien Hotel & Spa is celebrating love all weekend long with a series of special offerings throughout the hotel, topped off by a Valentine’s Day brunch on Sunday, Feb. 12 where one lucky couple will win a fabulous prize. Our fave is tomorrow’s Brunch, where from 10 til 2, you’ll enjoy Sinatra-esque music as you take in (or compete in) the “Best Couple Competition.” Guests are encouraged to dress to the nines an strut their stuff on the dance floor. The couple deemed most dazzling will win an overnight stay, a couples massage in the Spa, and dinner at Jill’s.  Need a little liquid courage? Brunch will feature bottomless bubbly, mimosas and Bloody Marys. Ring 720.406.9696 or visit www.stjulien.com.

Two to Tango

Who couldn’t use a bit of spice this Valentine’s Day? Nothing says sexy quite like the Tango, and on Tuesday night, Vail’s Sonnenalp Resort is doing it in style. Indulge in a four-course meal at Ludwigs where you’ll be surrounded by rose petals as you take in a performance by professional Tango dancers.  Then, enjoy the ‘après event’ in the King’s Club complete with Tango lessons for two and signature Tango-tinis. Those looking to spend the night can do so with a simple add-on package that gets you a Junior Suite.  Wine pairings are also available for an additional fee.  Ring 970.479.5429 or visit www.sonnenalp.com.
