Celebrate Valentines Day in Albany, Georgia
Posted on 1/28/2020 by Shelby Nichols
Love is in the air this time of year—especially in the Good Life City. From mouthwatering eats and down-right sinful treats to hands-on experiences you’ll never want to forget, grab your val, gal or pal-entine and make plans to #VisitAlbanyGA.
The Bread House: Typically only open for lunch, this Albany hot-spot is breaking with tradition and serving up four seriously impressive dinner entrees as well as Butternut Squash Ravioli, a Pomegranate, Beet and Blood Orange Arugula Salad and Chocolate Caramel Lava Cake with vanilla ice cream. Add in their trademark cozy atmosphere as well as a little soft music and it’s sure to be a treat for the senses. $190 per couple, contact The Bread House for reservations, (229) 888-9775.
The Rocket: Everyone’s favorite burger joint, The Rocket, has put together a special menu for the occasion with a value that’s out of this world! Beginning with a bottle of house wine, an appetizer and two house salads, followed by a choice between two entrees and the ultimate decision: fried cheesecake or hot fudge brownie, we wonder if sharing is mandatory. $75 per couple (or $90 for premium wine), contact The Rocket for reservations, (229) 496-1272.
Theatre Albany: Fall in love all over again with America's favorite "lovable loser," Charlie Brown in the Theatre Albany’s “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” Grab a bite prior to the 7:30 show time for a classic date night. Other dates and times available, contact Theatre Albany for tickets, TheatreAlbany.com
The Cakery Albany: Prefer to Netflix and chill? Ditch the flowers and pick up a dozen of the always delicious cookies, cakes and petit fours from the Cakery Albany. From the classic dipped strawberry boxes to cheeky shortbread hearts--even their popular cream horns--bringing home something sweet is always a treat. Prices vary depending on quantity, contact the Cakery Albany to place orders, (229) 436-4663.
