Experience love and passion this Valentine’s Day…Brighten your loved one’s day at work with a floral arrangement from Muzzy’s. Maybe you’ll feel like dining in Boston’s romantic North Square at Gennaro’s 5 North Square, or on Fleet Street at La Summa’s for dishes that evoke the senses of Sunday dinners. You may want to indulge in oysters and Prosecco at Villa Fransesca. Perhaps you feel like visiting Lucia’s in Winchester’s quaint downtown or on Hanover Street? You may want to sip on martinis at Ecco’s sleek bar? Don’t forget to dress up your loved one with a jewelry piece from the collection of Hollywood replicas from Filthy Rich of Boston. Those who long for the enchantment of the renowned ‘Golden Era’ are transported back in time, featuring pieces worn in famous films by silver screen legends Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Audrey Hepburn, made with pristine quality and affordably priced. Or if you prefer a quiet night at home, tuck into one of your favorite home cooked meals from “Recipes My Nonna Taught Me” then enjoy a film, topped off with dessert from Mike’s Pastry. For the more adventurous, you can celebrate a long Valentine’s Vacation with a cooking tour in Umbria, Italy! Whatever you decide, remember Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show your loved one how much you care.
