The shortest month of the year is finally here and so is that one day out of the year where cheesy love cards, heart-shaped candies, and cuddly teddy bears are trending (as well as guilt, anxiety and pressure NOT TO SCREW IT UP.) Yep. Valentine’s Day has finally come and if you better NOT SCREW IT UP. So. Salt Lake Magazine is here to take the stress out of the Valentine’s Day 2K19. You may also want to update your Xanax prescription.
Yoga and Beer at The Gateway

All levels of yogis and beer drinkers are welcome. Mat rentals are $2. RSVP today!
Powder at The Waldorf Astoria
A plethora of Park City restaurants have just announced their Valentine’s Day specials among them Powder, Waldorf Astoria’s signature restaurant will be offering a three-course prix fixe starting with a choice of oysters on the half shell, wagyu bavette tatakem or organic frisee and mizuna. After a champagne intermezzo, enjoy a choice of grilled swordfish, rack of lamb or New York steak, followed by passion fruit mousse for dessert.

If you are just wanting to stay within Salt Lake, Tin Angel will be doing a “blind” dinner where one of the four courses is tasted while blindfolded. They only do this a few times a year and Valentines Day happens to be one of those times. Tin Angel has been around since 2007 and has been very well received by the Salt Lake community. The owners have a passion for quality, local ingredients and offering high end cuisine, wine, and cocktails. For more information visit them on their website. UPDATE: V-Day is sold out. See you are totally blowing it. BUT you might could make a make-good. The blind dinners run through the weekend. It’s going to be OK.
East Liberty Tap House
For those of you who are toughing the day out single we have a pretty rad option. East Liberty Tap House will be holding a Single Awareness Day (S.A.D) event on Febrauary 14th. They’ll be offering specials like a delicious (slightly bitter) Aperol Spritz cocktail, loaded garlic fries (never to be eaten with a date), single serving (unshare-able) desserts, and our popular untidy sloppy lamb and sloppy shroom sandwiches (eaten without polite napkin wiping).

Visit the Ice Castles
The Midway Ice Castles located just outside of Park City are a winter wonderland. A wonder of ice and lights, the Midway Ice Castle springs up during the coldest parts of the ski season. The castle is created by a flood of water that creates a sprawling maze of winter fun that weighs more than 25 million pounds. There are slides built into the ice, winter princesses (like your lady!) strolling through and light and fire shows at night.
