Up Your Valentine’s Day Game at these Local Shops & Eateries
It is hard to believe February is right around the corner. Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day yet? Today, Valentine’s Day is more than just spending it with one special person. You can spend it with friends, family or even your favorite neighbors from our Franklin West community.
Here are a few places to help organize the perfect plans for your Valentine’s Day, no matter who you spend it with.
Trader Joe’s on Penn Ave is a great place to pick up your weekly produce, but they also have an affordable selection of flowers and cards for anyone you might want to make feel extra special this year. Not interested in dining out? Pick up items for the perfect meal and enjoy a night in.
This burger joint on Centre Ave is great for date night or a group outing. Enjoy the variety of apps they have to offer or try customizing your own burger. Who doesn’t love a sweet treat on Valentine’s day? Finish off your meal with one of their deliciously crafted milkshakes.
Cupcakes, cookies, pies – oh my! Prantl’s Bakery over on Walnut Street has nothing short of every sweet you would desire. Treat someone else (or yourself) to a delicious dessert like their famous Burnt Almond Torte or a decorated cupcake.
Nothing says love like sharing a few plates of pasta. With sunset hues and tables gathered close together, Casbah’s interior exudes warmth and coziness perfect to share with close friends or a special someone. Plus, it’s a short walk over to S Highland Ave.
This Valentine’s Day enjoy hundreds of orchids, plus their cosmic collection of tropical bonsai at the Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show: Out of This World! Finish the visit with something special from the gift shop or a visit to Phipps Cafe.
This neighborhood hotspot on S. Highland Ave always seems to have a line out the door but it is worth the wait. Bring a bottle of wine and enjoy a dish of Pad Thai or one of their other specialties. In addition to a menu with a ton of delicious options, it is also extremely affordable and a BYOB establishment.
Tempted to splurge on some dessert after dinner or maybe even second dessert? Stop by Millies on S Highland Ave. Whether you grab a bite at Noodlehead, Casbah, or BRGR, make sure to save room for the most delicious ice cream!
Enjoy these delicious places with someone (or a few people) you love.
