Sultry Spanish Valentine

Sultry Spanish Valentine

We're not very fond of Valentine's Day. The pressure, the crowded restaurants with dumbed-down menus to accommodate everyone's tastes, the what if I don't have a date question, the cheeze.

So we decided to do our first double-header event, with a special "rolling solo" night on Friday in addition to an everyone-welcome Saturday event. We transformed the old Yellow Button Boutique space with it's big windows facing Main Street and throw a sultry dinner with Spanish-inspired flavors to make any Valentine date night passersby envious. The singles night even resulted in a connection or two!
