Valentine’s Day is Monday, Feb. 14. It’s time to make plans for the biggest “date night” of the year. Here are some Patch Picks for a romantic and memorable evening.
- The Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange: The Highlawn offers a tradition of fine dining in a beautiful atmosphere with views of the Manhattan skyline. A perfect choice if you plan to pop the big question!
- Essex County Codey Arena at South Mountain in West Orange. Couples who love to be active will enjoy skating hand-in-hand in the wonderful facility. Check website for public session schedule.
- Richie Cecere’s Supper Club, 2 Erie St., in Montclair. A throwback to the day when women were ladies and guys were gentleman. Enjoy dinner on Friday and Saturday nights with an 18-piece live orchestra.
- Cooking at home? Pick up chocolate covered, long-stem strawberries for dessert from and a bottle of La Marca prosecco from . Hint: add a dash of pomegranate juice to tint the drink red.
