“Valentine's Day is the poet's holiday.”-Ted Kooser
Ok, a couple of days ago we spun off a few ideas for your Valentine’s Day Dilemma. You know, what to give, where to go, what to do,etc.
Because we are huge believers in the power of romance to rekindle a relationship. Life is pretty busy for most folks these days it seems and while some might complain about Valentine’s Day being nothing more than a Hallmark promoted way to get people to spend money (a stance particularly embraced by those we might term...uh… ‘thrifty’) having a day that celebrates love certainly isn’t the worst idea in the world.
We at N3WH continue our quest to offer many options to our readers in order to provide a vast variety of VDay victuals and events available here in our corner of the universe.
Newaygo Brewing Co.
An atmosphere of conviviality exists at NewBrewCo. lending itself to the kind of pleasant conversation often aligned with good food and good drink. It’s a kick-back kind of place where you can relax while pondering the latest creations on tap and deciding on which of their preeminent pizzas will grace the table.
A date night dream, the brewery provides a setting conducive to communication, a key factor in any relationship whether it be in the infancy stage or one involving veterans in the ongoing quest for connection.
On V-Day they are hitting it out of the park with “A Newaygo Valentine’s Day”
Your evening starts with their wonderful breadstick appetizer followed by a 3 topping pizza. This also includes a pair of beverages with a choice from their epic brews, wistful wines or scintillating ciders.
Well any romantic dinner requires a dessert to top it off and NBCo, does it right.
Need we say more?
As Stephanie Plum asserts in the Janet Evanovich offering “Eleven on Top”
