Get Out! It's Almost Valentine's Day!

by Peggy Robin

You don't need to be part of a couple* to enjoy Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is also for people with kids, parents, siblings, dear friends, pets, or people they visit in nursing homes or are helping in some nice way. And, of course, it's for anyone who loves chocolate!

Want to give a Valentine's treat to someone who fits one of the categories above? (Don't forget: "Yourself" can be someone you are helping out!). If you still need something as late as Sunday February 13, you might want to head out to Alexandria, where you'll find a Valentine's mini-mart with some offbeat vendors and some creative gift ideas. Enjoy a hot chocolate cherry cider while you're there!

Here's the invitation for the BE MINE Mini-Market, 12 - 4 PM:

Come celebrate LOVE with local vendors, games and special hot cider!

Bring your beau to Lost Boy Cider on February 13th for a Valentine's/Galentine's fun-filled day! We'll have HOT Chocolate Cherry Cider ready for you to enjoy and keep you toasty while you peruse local vendors:

A special feature will be LIVE ear piercing from Creative Chaos! MUST SIGN UP IN ADVANCE FOR A SLOT. Please plan to get your piercing BEFORE you start to drink :) 

Enjoy select discounts and pick up last-minute gifts for your special someone!

Play a game or two of checkers or tic tac toe on our large game board and take home some sweets and treats, with love from Lost Boy Cider!
* Or, if you're part of a non-traditional arrangement, a "throuple" or any other polyamorous menage. We are all for non-exclusive terminology these days!

On Monday, February 14 - for those of you with kids in your lives - head over to the Takoma DC Public Library for get your free Valentine's card-making supplies.
