    Valentine's Events

    Vino Vino: Valentines

    Right there in the heart of the historic Hyde Park neighborhood, this cozy little wine-fueled bastion of culinary goodness is offering two four-course prix-fixe meals – one called "Loves Me," one called "Loves Me Not" – ha! – with optional pairings available for each. Which one features the roasted beets, potato gnocchi, NY strip steak, and strawberry shortcake? Which one features veggie sticks, Cowgirl Creamery's mac & cheese, fried chicken, and an ice cream sundae? You'll know when you're there, which is much less mysterious than love.
    Thu.-Fri., Feb. 14-15, 5-10pm. $75.

    Valentine's Events

    Valentine's Day at Fairmont Austin

    You wanna do the Valentine's thing all drop-dead glamorous this year, citizen? Austin's Fairmont has two packages available, each a partnership with jeweller Kendra Scott, one that you can probably afford and one that your lover the tech mogul might more easily spring for. The XOXO package starts at $225 per night and comes with a Kendra Scott Votive Candle. The VIP Suite Heart package is $7,500 for two nights – srsly – but it comes with accommodations in the Presidential Suite, Kendra Scott’s Spring Collection jewelry, breakfast in bed with truffles and eggs, an exclusive bottle of vintage Perrier-Jouët Champagne, and more. Ah, who says late-stage capitalism can't be romantic AF?
