Love is in the air!

It’s officially February, and looooove is in the air! We believe Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to treat your lovebird, your best gal pals, your family, and heck, even yourself to something extra special. The good news? Whatever that means to you, we’ve got it in Henderson, Kentucky! Sit back, pop some candy hearts (BE MINE!), and let us help you take the guesswork out of Valentine’s Day this year with options so grand that Cupid himself would have all the #hearteyes. 


Romance with a Parisian flair
Is there anything more romantic than a candlelit dinner in a winery? Farmer & Frenchman Winery and Cafe is hosting two options for the day of love this year: a four-course dinner in the winery, or a five-course dinner and wine pairing in the barn with guest chef Alex Naeger. Chef Alex works closely with celebrity chefs like Emeril Legasse and Thomas Keller, so this is guaranteed to be a top notch meal with all the romantic vibes your heart can handle. The best part? The night doesn’t have to end there! Celebrate your love in a cozy, luxurious cabin for two onsite overlooking the vineyard.


For the Love of HeART Date Night
If your love interest (or gal pals!) has an artsy side, you’ll want to grab tickets to the Ohio Valley Art League’s For the Love of HeART Dinner and Canvas Date Night event in the Gatsby Room at Hometown Roots. Enjoy a carefully curated three-course dinner, live music, a complementary glass of wine, and hands-on instruction by a professional artist to paint your own masterpiece! Whether you’re a serious artist or leave much to be desired in that department, this is a turn-key date night that’s sure to be a wonderful time. And our sources say that learning a new skill together can only strengthen the bond!


Chocolate + Shopping: You Can’t Go Wrong!
If you’re browsing for the perfect gift for a loved one, the perfect gift for yourself, or taking your date on a downtown Henderson shop-til-you-drop date, definitely make plans to do it during the Downtown Henderson Partnership‘s Chocolate Walk, Feb. 11-14. During this annual event, local merchants offer a sampling of chocolate at each store to kick-start the endorphins and prepare the wallet for a big night out!


CKB, Back by popular demand for Heart Weekend
Take your sweetie to Commonwealth Kitchen & Bar to choose favorite selections of a four-course dinner.  Starter, salad, entre’e, and of course, the most decadent desserts! Open February 14 & 15, but better call for a reservation!



Catch a Show 
If the performing arts are your love language, tickets to the show at the Preston Arts Center are a perfect option. A Valentine’s weekend magic show could be the perfect recipe for making a little magic with your sweetheart!


Plan B
If all else fails, adopt a puppy or kitten! There are plenty of furry kisses and cuddles at the Humane Society of Henderson County or New Hope Animal Shelter.
