It’s time to snack on heart-shaped chocolates while you sip on a good bottle of wine with the one you love — Valentine’s Day is this weekend! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner, a friend, your mom or even a furry friend, it’s a great opportunity to get out and do something special in the Puget Sound.
If you’re staying in or around Kent to pop your bubbly, there are several great options to ring in the holiday! We’ve highlighted a few below in case you’re in need of ideas.
Eat Your Heart Out
Looking to go the traditional route? Head to a romantic restaurant here in Kent to enjoy a cozy outdoor date night on a heated patio or take it to go so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your CityZen home!
Italian food and Valentine’s Day go together like cheese and wine; you can’t go wrong with a romantic dinner for two at Grazie Ristorante! Split some calamari and fettuccine in their toasty tent for a Valentine’s Day to remember. In the mood for Mexican? Order some takeout and cocktails-to-go from Asadero Sinaloa. A ribeye taco box with a guava margarita on the side is sure to hit the spot this weekend! If you want to try something new, Iron Pot is a brand-new Korean restaurant that opened just a couple months ago here in Kent. It’s already getting rave reviews — place your DoorDash order to try it for yourself! The poke looks so flavorful and refreshing.
Explore the Great Outdoors
Nothing says “I love you” like a Valentine’s Day picnic. It may be chilly right now in Kent, but you know what they say — there’s no bad weather, just bad gear! Spread out your blanket at Clark Lake Park or Lake Fenwick Park and pack a basket full of delicious goodies from our local Nature’s Market to take with you! If you want to enjoy waterfront views of the bay while you dine, Saltwater State Park is the place to go. Bundle up and keep your valentine warm as you enjoy the fresh air and views! If you’re feeling ambitious, check out one of the hikes we mentioned in our last blog post! When you’re done, you can warm up in your cozy apartment. Play some games, turn on soft jazz music and mix up some creative cocktails to elevate your evening!
