Roses are red, violets are blue, but both are uncreative gifts that will end up with her not sexing you. So this V-Day, get outside the box (...and then possibly back in it! Hey now!) with these three local, creative gifts that'll blow her mind
FORK Poetry Dinner @ Beatrice + Woodsley
Sure, this romantic three-courser in B&W's wine cellar has pepper-smoked beef tenderloin with bacon-kale hash (the most romantic of all the kale hashes). But the real present? An in-
housecellar wordsmith will write a custom poem for your lady on a 1917 Corona typewriter while you dine.
Sun, Feb 10th, 6p: $110/person; 38 S Broadway; South Broadway; 303.777.3505; Reserve tickets by emailing email@example.com
Candy-Making Class @ Bones
Pour your blood, sweat, and tears (or at least chocolate, salt, and... tears) into making her some custom caramels & bonbons under the tutelage of the owner of Helliemae’s Handcrafted Caramels and a Mizuna chef. Or, you know, take the class with her.
Sat, Feb 9th, 12-2p: $55/person; 701 Grant St; Cap Hill; Call 303.860.2929 to reserve a spot
Coco @ Goorin Bros.
Take it on the authority of people who live in SoHo and sometimes get coffee and see girls on the street wearing fashion-y clothes: these hats are weirdly sort of the new thing. So grab your lady one at the Larimer Sq haberdashery and you'll basically be dating a celebrity.
$70; 1410 Larimer Street; LoDo; 303.534.4287; Goorin.com
