Valentine’s Day Dates


Wild Night

If you’re an extravagant animal enthusiast, the hottest date night this Valentine’s Day is Apple Valley Minnesota’s Zoo: “Love Tour.” For $175 you and your date can enjoy a romantic dinner, hors d’oeuvres, a guided tour of the animals focusing on their breeding habits, and a little special something as a souvenir. Hit up if you’re so inclined to learn more.

Minnesota Zoo
13000 Zoo Blvd  
Apple Valley, MN 55124

Corny but cute

Italian Pie Shoppe’s heart-shaped pizza is a good choice on February 14th, but don’t fret if you miss it next Thursday—it’s available all month long. Plus, you couldn’t ask for shorter transit time!

Dinner & a movie

Head over to the recently renovated and reopened Uptown Theater to catch the Oscar Nominated Short Films 2013 Animation or Live Action and grab a bite to eat before or after Birdhouse on Hennepin, which is offering a special three course menu for $45 including vegetarian and vegan options.

Have a ball

Pinstripes is the Twin Cities’ hottest bowling-bocce-bistro. Known for “sophisticated fun,” this Edina see-and-be-seen spot features not only upscale bowling and everyone’s favorite lawn game, you can also refuel at their Italian-American restaurant that often has live music. Before you go, hit up the year-round fire-pit, a prime canoodling spot so you can complete your bowling-bocce-bistro experience with some besos.

    I discovered more a new challenge on this losing weight issue. Just one issue is that good nutrition is tremendously vital when dieting. A big reduction in bad foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, pork, and white colored flour products might be necessary. Keeping wastes bloodsuckers, and poisons may prevent goals for fat-loss. While a number of drugs briefly solve the problem, the horrible side effects are not worth it, and they also never give more than a temporary solution. It is a known undeniable fact that 95 of dietary fads fail. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this blog site.
