Valentine’s Day at AVA

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and we have the some wonderful events planned for you and yours.

I have never been the type to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Having worked in the service industry for most of my adult life meant that even if I did have someone to celebrate it with, I was usually working. Truth be told, until I met my husband, I had never even had a Valentine on the actual holiday. Until I had a Valentine I never understood what all the hub bub was about. But, now I understand! It is fun to spend some quality time with the person that you love. Sure you see them all the time, but it is nice to do something a little special for just the two of you– especially in the dead of winter when there is nothing to look forward to until the first hint of a daffodil.

We have a several events planned for the week of Valentine’s Day from art to fine dining, we have something to reach hit every budget and every type of celebration.

Tuesday, February 11th, treat your Valentine to Fun Nite Art– a night of painting and wine. For $40 per person you get a painting tutorial that includes all of you materials and a canvas that you can take home and a glass of wine. Work together to create a 32×40 piece of artwork or two 16×20 separate pieces. Dinner and additional drinks are not included. Also, you must preregister for this event as space is limited to 30 people.
