Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day? There are so many great things to do, see, eat and buy for your loved one locally, I went a little overboard coming up with ideas, plus a great giveaway prize for one lucky winner.
For the sweet tooth, you can buy DeGroot truffles from Nevada City Truffle Shop, candies and chocolate from Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe, Jasmine and Violet ice cream from Treats, gift bags of chocolate dipped marshmallows or gourmet cupcakes from Emily’s Catering and Cakes, a bar of Cello Chocolate or something sweet from Lazy Dog Chocolateria.
There are some great local shopping options in Nevada City from My Favorite Things, The Parlour at Neva Co, Kitkitdizzi, J.J. Jackson’s, Gray Goose, Abstrakt, Maiden Lane, Judi’s or Nevada City Crystal & Glass. Downtown Grass Valley offers gift options in Mint and Yuba Blue. Or perhaps you want to get creative and make your sweetheart something special, stop by The Artist Workshop for some loved themed projects, reserve a table for Valentine’s Day. If you stop by on the 13th and 14th wearing red or pink you will receive 10% off your project and the opportunity to decorate a cookie, click here for their schedule.
So whether you’re going out to eat, heading to the Masquerade Ball at the Miners Foundry or drinking wine with the downtown Grass Valley Valentine’s Day wine stroll there are a lot of great events happening Valentine’s Day weekend. Click here to see the Pinterest board I put together with more information on additional events and ideas.
