Out-Of-The-Box Valentine’s Day Ideas

     How about serenading your sweetheart this Valentine's Day?    

     “It's just seeing the reactions of the people we sing to. We normally leave women in tears. They get so emotional to be sung to by four handsome gentlemen in four part harmony. You don't get that every day,” said Steve Isherwood, who is a member of the Generations Barber Shop Quartet. It's a little more memorable than dinner and chocolates. The Barber Shop Quartet will cost you fifty dollars.

     For the same price, you and your valentine can learn how to make your favorite drink. A “Tini Cocktail Class” is being offered Saturday afternoon at “Tini Food Bar” in Providence.

     Alicia Canning, who is a bartender at Tini Food bar, gave ABC6's own Andrea Medeiros a preview of one of the drinks the class will learn to concoct. “Mint, grapes, lemon juice, vodka, and prosecco is the finish,” she explained.

     Another cheap thing you can do this Valentine's weekend is lace up your skates and take a spin on the ice. It only costs six dollars for a romantic skate the Kennedy Plaza Rink and three bucks for skate rentals. Online coupons will save you even more.    

     But you're still probably going to want to grab a bite to eat. At Amici Bar and Grille, it'll cost you thirty dollars per person for their Valentine's deal.

     “We don't have anything heart-shaped, but we have a lot of sexy specials. You know, a rib-eye on the menu. We have a lot of sushi specials,” said Manny Arruda, General Manager at Amici.
   
     Other providence restaurants are also offering specials:
     Amici Bar and Grille costs only thirty dollars per person. Blush Wine Bar and Blue Grotto Restaurant cost forty dollars per person. And XO Cafe costs fifty dollars per person.

     And who says you can't support a good cause while romancing your valentine? The Marriott Hotel is having a dinner concert Saturday night. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Providence Rescue Mission.

     Of course, what matters most is having your sweetheart by your side wherever you are this Valentine's Day.
