Victorian-era Valentine’s Day was shared between lovers with romantic paper sentiments adorned with frills, lace, cupids, gloves, bluebirds and hearts. It is during this time that food, expressly chocolates sold in elaborately decorated boxes, became popularly associated with this holiday. Today, February 14 is celebrated by family members with cookie baking, crafts and special meals. Friends see it as a non-romantic occasion for celebration during the doldrums of winter. Begin a family tradition, gather the friends or enjoy a lovers’ night out at one of these five Charlotte-area locations.
Charlotte is a dog-friendly city with many parks, walking trails and even restaurants where you can take your pooch. Although having dogs inside restaurants is illegal, most restaurants that have outside seating on decks are usually dog-friendly.
Join The Fan Wednesday, February 9th at Icehouse Southend for a viewing party for the Carolina/Duke game beginning at 9pm.
