If you wanted something a little more urban and rustic, grab your lover and pop on over to the Volunteer Park Conservatory for an exclusive wine and cocktail tasting experience. The Conservatory is home to five different houses filled with exotic and local foliage that will set the mood perfectly for what is sure to be an enchanted evening. Cocktail in hand, peruse the gorgeous displays of this historical Seattle landmark while being serenaded by local jazz musicians, the Evan Captain Trio. What’s better than wine, cocktails, jazz music, and an evening under the stars with your one and only?
For those of you who are leaning towards a hands-on Valentine’s Day activity, look no further than the unique experience of brewing your own beer at Gallagher’s Where-U-Brew in Edmonds. A little teamwork results in a fantastic product that you’ll be able to enjoy with one another—and you can relish in the fact that the two of you created something delicious together. If beer isn’t your style, Gallagher’s also offers a make-your-own wine experience. Sounds like barrels of fun to me!
