Post Independent Staff
Can you feel the love in the air? For those lucky enough to be in the midst of loving bliss ” or planning to make a major Valentine’s Day gesture to help justify their love ” this weekend offers plenty of options to celebrate the year’s most romantic holiday. And even those who find themselves temporarily out of the love loop can use the weekend to make some new connections. Here’s a guide to some of the options:
– The Glenwood Springs Community Center hosts an open house dance party from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 13, featuring Lesly Adams’ current crop of dance students and open to anyone who’s interested. Free to current dance students, $3 drop-in. Refreshments will be provided. Adults 21 and up may bring beer and wine.
– Hopeful folks can get on the waiting list for Exclamation Point’s so-far sold-out Valentine’s Day romantic dinner for two, held Saturday. Enjoy a special evening that includes a “his and hers” five-course menu and glass of champagne. $45 per person for annual passholders and $55 per person for those without passes. Reservations: 945-9799.
– Several local hotels are offering special Valentine’s Day promotions. The Hot Springs Lodge’s “Honeymoon Kisses Package” includes one night’s accommodations in a superior room, complimentary bottle of champagne, fresh flower arrangement and two champagne glasses filled with Hershey Kisses. Unlimited admission to the Hot Springs Pool and continental breakfast at the Deli are also included. $156 per couple. Reservations: 1-800-537-SWIM (7946).
The Ramada Inn’s “Pamper Me Package” ($89.95 per person) includes one night’s lodging for two, a trip to the Hot Springs Pool for two, an herbal bath for two, and a breakfast for two in the morning.
Or, consider the Hotel Colorado’s “Say You Love Me Package”: two nights lodging in a newly renovated Ambassador, Balcony or Jacuzzi Suite, a 50-minute full-body massage for both at the Light Circle, pool passes to the Hot Springs Pool and a $50 dinner voucher for two at the Grand Lobby Cafe. Only $729 per couple. Reservations: 945-6511.
– Come join in the spirit of some very, very committed relationships as the Glenwood Springs Mall launches the slightly unnerving “‘Til Death Do Us Part,” a special Valentine’s Day endurance contest which begins at noon on Saturday. Five couples will try to see who can stand together in a coffin-styled box the longest, with a valuable prize package going to the winner.
– Valentine dinner-dance for single adults aged 30 and over, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, at the Church of Latter-Day Saints in Rifle. Information: 625-3693.
