Weekend Best Bets: Valentine Edition

A little blue goes a long way...trust us.

A little blue goes a long way…trust us.

We’re going to veer from our regularly scheduled program, for a special Valentine’s Day edition of weekend best bets.

Suffice it to say, the Champions Tour and Delray Open kick off this weekend with Andy Roddick, the Bryan Brothers, Mats Wilander and more. In addition, the Arts Garage has another incredible line-up of shows and visual art this weekend. Visit www.yellowtennisball.com and www.artsgarage.org for more information.

Instead of our usual array of cultural offerings, we’re going to give you our three choices for a romantic weekend in Boca-Delray.

  • Take a romantic stroll on the beach: Boca and Delray beaches are made for walking. The north end of Delray may be a little noisy do to dredging but try Atlantic Dunes or A1A at Palmetto Park Road for a sunset or sunrise stroll. We’d encourage you to bring a bottle of bubbly, but it’s not allowed. If you’re in Delray drop by Caffe Luna Rosa, 50 S. Ocean or Boheme Bistro for great wine or visit N2 a hot new wine bar in Pineapple Grove (n2winebar.com).
  • Nothing is more romantic than cooking for your beloved, but on Valentine’s Day you will want to spice it up.

We recommend a hot new sauce called Tabanero, based right here in Boca. Disclaimer: (I am a shareholder) but it’s really delicious and its all natural too. Tabanero can be paired with pizza, eggs or even chocolate. Visit www.tabanero.com for more information.

  • At yourdelrayboca.com we are big on shopping local. So we recommend, that you hit Atlantic Avenue, Artist’s Alley and the Mall at Town Center sometime this weekend to pick out a special gift for your loved one.

We’ve heard the little blue box is a can’t miss. For people like Dave who need more than a clue, that’s Tiffany and Co., located in Town Center.

Atlantic Avenue has an array of great little shops where you can find just the right gift; Pineapple Grove also has an array of shops and places to pamper your loved one with a massage, gift certificate or pedicure.

For something a little different, consider visiting Artist’s Alley (Third Avenue and Third Street) Delray’s hottest new neighborhood featuring an array of local artists exhibiting and selling their creations.

The Alley will be open for “Romance Saturday”. Tell them, we sent you.

Have a great Valentine’s Day.
