Valentine’s Day Events in Orange County 2018
We’re less than a week away from Valentine’s Day! If you’re looking for something exciting, adventurous, romantic, or just a fun night out on the town with your single friends, we’ve got you covered. Check out our list of Valentine’s Day events in Orange County 2018 below.
True Food Kitchen Cocktails
Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be about one day to show you care. At least True Food Kitchen doesn’t think so. Beginning this Friday through Feb. 18, take your mate for a sip at the bar, which is offering Valentine’s-themed drinks, suggested wines and a mocktail. We’re leaning toward the War of the Roses cocktail, with pomegranate-infused vodka and prosecco. 451 Newport Center Dr., Newport Beach, (949) 644-2400; www.truefoodkitchen.com.
Dough & Arrow ‘N Squared Exhibition
Feeling artsy? Head to Dough & Arrow for a very special exhibit called “Cute Couples.” Not exactly Valentine’s-oriented, but dynamic duos nonetheless. The fun kicks off at 6 p.m. this Saturday and lasts through the end of the month. During the opening-night festivities, Dough & Arrow will launch a new cookie and have prints for sale from many of the artists featured, including Jerrod Maruyama (see opening picture). Plus, it’s still taking orders for the Perfect Couple cookie box and macarons (both $9), as well as an Anti-Valentine’s version (think poop emoji) through the 11th. Talk about tasty delights! 3033 Bristol St., Ste. Q, Costa Mesa, (657) 247-4483; www.doughandarrow.co.
The recently opened pub at Golden Road Anaheim is keeping it low-key cool: “No reservations. No fuss. Cool people. Specialty brew. Not awkward.” You know how groove is in the heart? Here, love is in the beer. We’ll drink to that—and have more of Chef Henry Tran’s menu, too. 2210 E. Orangewood Ave., Anaheim, (714) 912-4015; www.goldenroad.la.
Boudin Sourdough Heart Pre-Orders
Only available online, sales for heart-shaped carbs end tomorrow at noon. You can pick up these $8.49 hunks of sourdough love at your local Boudin—just specify Tuesday or Wednesday when ordering. We think a generous pat of softened, infused butter will pair nicely. Various locations,www.boudinbakery.com.
Rose and Souffle Social
You say rosé; we say “What time?!” When: Tuesday, 5-7 p.m.. Where: Bluegold’s bar. The cost: $25 per guest. The rest: Half the bar, as well as a sectioned-off area of Bluegold will offer a tasting of two to three pretty in pink wines and tray-passed souffles. We’ll take this over taco night! 21016 Pacific Coast Hwy., Huntington Beach, (714) 374-0038; www.dinebluegold.com.
International Pancake Day at Snooze, An A. M. Eatery
If your loved one is a fan of the most important meal of the day, celebrate a day early at Snooze Tustin next Tuesday. Folks who order their special King Cake (and find the baby prize inside) will potentially win some Snooze swag, which may or may not include gift cards. All pancake sales that day will go towards Tustin Memorial Elementary School’s garden. Oh, and try the Whiskey pancake for us! 3032 El Camino Real, Tustin, (714) 415-6269; www.snoozeeatery.com.
