Happy Valentine’s Day/Family Day Weekend!
If you’re looking for something romantic to do tonight, or something fun to do the rest of the weekend here’s a list of some fun options.
22 Church Steakhouse – Romantic steakhouse in Pickering Village. Check out their Valentine’s Day Menu!
Casa Verde – Italian restaurant in Pickering Village with a great wine list. Valentine’s Menu also available
Chatterpaul’s – One of Durham’s most popular restaurants. Chatterpaul’s also has a Whitbylicious menu for $35/person
Fazio’s Restaurant & Wine Experience – Lovely Italian restaurant in Oshawa with a wine cellar accommodating over 15,000 bottles!
Last minute gifts? No problem!
For Him: Alleyne’s Grooming for Gentlemen is relatively new in Ajax, but has become an excellent desination for men looking to pamper themselves a little. You can purchase a gift certificate for anything from a hot shave (very popular) to a massage to pedicure, even image consultations.
A good book can be a great gift as well – why not take a look through Chapter’s and find something on a subject he loves?
Most men also love chocolates. You can either buy pre-boxed or visit Laura Secord, Purdy’s or Godiva and make your own combination up. Really, who doesn’t love chocolate?
For Her: If you don’t want to go the chocolates and roses route (Which you can easily find at Laura Secord or Purdy’s!), then know that every girl loves to be pampered too. A massage or a pedicure is always a great gift. If you’re looking for a fabulous masseuse, look no further than Melissa Nunes at The Purple Monarch. For a mani-pedi, there are lots of options available, but here are just a few in Whitby, Ajax, Pickering and Oshawa.
Looking for some fun activities?
If you love skating, head down to Millenium Square in Frenchman’s Bay and check out the outdoor skating rink. Open from 9am to 9pm
Take your little one to a ceramics cafe! Check out Crock a Doodle out in Bowmanville, and they can make their own unique piece of art.
If you’re looking for something fun to do with the family, check out the ParentSource events page for lots of fun ideas!
And if there’s anything else you’re considering doing, first take a look at what’s open and what’s closed this Family Day in Durham Region.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
