Spread Valentine’s Love San Juan Islands Style
From San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau
This Valentine’s Day, give some love to our island communities and support your favorite shops, restaurants and lodgings. This last year has been tough on business owners keeping up with changing restrictions.
A candlelit dinner is a Valentine’s must, and there are so many takeout options to choose from you can’t go wrong.
Like the five-course pre-fixed menu with wine pairings, a long-stemmed rose and chocolate teddy bear truffles from Coho Restaurant (www.cohorestaurant.com/all-posts/valentines-weekend-rapture-2021) in Friday Harbor.
Rosario Resort’s “Amore di San Valentino” menu guarantees romance with wild mushroom gnocchi, baked crab cakes, and chocolate torte with Chantilly cream. Ursa Minor on Lopez has already sold out of their curated take-home meal kits full of tasty delights like Sweet Grass Farm’s New York strip steak with marrow butter and roasted cabbage with Pea-So (www.ursaminorlopez.com), but there’s room on the waiting list.

Trying to come up with a gift outside the box?
A heart-shaped pendant might seem like a cliché, however, these necklaces from Nixon Art Glass are anything but. Each piece of fused glass is hand-cut, designed and fused together in the kiln. The result – unique and functional glass art that will add elegance and drama to any outfit. Even better, they’re 20% off! Use the code LOVE20 at checkout.

Is a staycation in order? Most accommodations are open with safety measures in place. Treat yourselves to a night or two at Doe Bay Resort and add some pampering with the Lover’s Special (https://doebay.com/store/Lovers-Special-p258083325). Find other specials here: www.visitsanjuans.com/stay
Your sweetie is one-of-a-kind, so the gift(s) should be too!
