Valentine’s Day Fun in Walworth County!

Valentine Candy HeartsWhat?! Valentine’s Day is coming?! When?! Oh yah, February 14, like it does every year. I have a built-in reminder each year of February 14 and Valentine’s Day approaching and it looks suspiciously like my youngest daughter, ‘coz she was born on February 14. Hopefully I haven’t caught you off-guard on it being almost Valentine’s Day, and if I have, I can easily save you with what I’m going to tell you about! There are options galore to choose from for Valentine’s Day in Walworth County, both the weekend before, the actual day of, and the weekend after. Let’s explore the choices!

The weekend prior, which so you stay on top of things, is this coming weekend, has a mix of activities to choose from. I’m hungry at the moment, so let’s start with the food-related ones… You’ve got two choices with Rosewood, Delavan, with their Valentine’s Wine Dinner on Friday, February 9, 6 – 9 pm, and then on Sunday, February 11, 11:30 am – 3 pm, with their ‘Heart & Soul’ Show with Brunch. Score some big points and do both with your sweetheart! Looking to put a little zip in the relationship? Lake Geneva Canopy Tours, Lake Geneva, offers their ‘Zip Line and Dine’ on Saturday, February 10, 5 – 8 pm, to do just that. For me personally, being slightly afraid of heights, I’ll take the dine portion of that duo, though if I wanted to overcome my fear, it would be with Lake Geneva Canopy Tours’ help, for sure. Another feat of bravery is proving how much you know, or maybe don’t know, about your significant other, all while participating in the ‘Not So Newlywed Game’ at Delavan Lake Store, Delavan, on Friday, February 9, 6:30 – 9:30 pm. Sure to bring laughs and maybe a discovery or two! Make your own Valentine’s Day gift with Valentine’s Day Cookie Decorating and Card Making at Big Foot High School, Walworth, on Saturday, February 10, 9 – 10 am. Open for all ages, so make it a family outing, even if you have to borrow the nieces and nephews to do so. If being artsy isn’t your thing, then head over to Lubick Gallery & Gifts, Delavan, for their ‘Have a Heart’ Sale, which is 20% off any item with a heart on it or that is heart-shaped. Maybe you’re thinking of making a romantic dinner, but aren’t sure what wine to pair with it. Sonoma Cellars, Delavan can assist with that at their February Frolic Tasting Event, Saturday, February 10, 2 – 4 pm. If wine doesn’t suit you, they’ll be offering craft beers and other spirits to try as well. Since I like wine, but don’t know a thing about which should go with what, let alone the whole cook dinner thing, Staller Estate Winery, Delavan and their Valentine’s Inspired Wine & Dine, Sunday, February 11, 12 – 3 pm, is perfect for me! If someone’s an expert at wine pairing, then I say let ‘em do it!

If the actual day of Valentine’s Day, February 14, is the only day you can choose to celebrate it, then no worries! There are so many dining options to choose from, that you’re sure to find the one that will make your better half smile. Choose from: Valentine’s Dinner, The Trout House at Rushing Waters, Palmyra, 4 – 9 pm; Valentine’s Dinner, Hunt Club Steakhouse, Lake Geneva, 4 – 9 pm; All You Need is Love & a 3-course Meal, The Geneva Inn, Lake Geneva, 5 – 9 pm; Valentine’s Dinner, The Ridge Hotel – Crafted Americana, Lake Geneva, 5 – 9 pm; Valentine’s Day Dinner, The Abbey Resort – 240° West, Fontana, 5 – 9:30 pm; Valentine’s Sweetheart Dinner, Lake Lawn Resort – The Frontier Restaurant, Delavan, 5 – 10 pm; Valentine’s Day Dinner, The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa – Geneva ChopHouse & Ristorante Brissago, Lake Geneva, 5:30 – 10 pm; and Valentine Wine Dinner, Hawk’s View Golf Club, Lake Geneva, 6 – 8:30 pm.

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Wednesday, which opens up the weekend prior and the weekend after to extend the celebration beyond the one day, so dare I say, it buys you more time to plan and not end up in the dog house! The Abbey Resort – 240° West hosts again their Valentine’s Day Dinner, Friday, February 16, 5 – 10 pm, as well as Lake Lawn Resort – The Frontier Restaurant holding their Valentine’s Sweetheart Dinner again on Saturday, February 17, 5 – 10 pm. Rosewood’s monthly Dine & Dance falls nicely to allow them a Valentine’s spin, on Friday, February 16, 5:30 – 10:30 pm. Studio Winery, Lake Geneva, does a twist on the Cork & Canvas format, by hosting a Valentine’s Day Couple event on Sunday, February 18, 12 – 3 pm. Make it real easy on yourself with a weekend of activities already planned out at Sky Circus on Ice, hosted by Lake Lawn Resort, Delavan. With professional kite team performances on Delavan Lake, expert snow sculpting and ice carving exhibition at both Lake Lawn Resort and in Downtown Delavan, the N.E.W. Dueling Piano Guys performing on both Friday and Saturday nights (and I’m told they are not to be missed!), along with a myriad of other activities, plus the specific Valentine’s dining options I already told you about, this could be the golden ticket!

Why should Valentine’s Day be celebrated only one day? My daughter would surely agree, given as February 14 is her birthday, and who wouldn’t want their birthday celebrated for more than one day, so why not Valentine’s Day, too?!  Take advantage of the timing to make Valentine’s an overnight, long weekend or extended getaway with your sweetheart.
