Mood Music, Mussels, Mountains and More
By Cat Kessler
extravaganza to celebrate love, romance and everything splendored. (Hint: Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away!)
Resolution #2: Spend some quality time
with that special someone
- Go the traditional route, Asheville-style with locally made chocolates and sweets. The French Broad Chocolate Lounge is once again offering their Aphrodisiac Collection of 6 artisan truffles made with romantic ingredients such as red wine, roses and cayenne pepper.
- Whisper sweet nothings in a candle-lit corner of one of Asheville's 250+ independent restaurants. Bouchon--a French restaurant with a Southern twist--offers steaming bowls of mussels with french fries, which are perfect for sharing.
- Have a hands-on romance experience with unique classes, including couples' massage classes at the Privai Academy ($40 per couple, offered Feb. 4, 11 & 17 -- call 828.277.3883 for details). Also check out the Learn the Art of Romance package, which includes drawing classes, a massage and dinner at The Admiral.
- Do you have to say 'I love you' with a song? Call on a local jazz duo to serenade you and your sweetheart at a restaurant, your B&B room or on a favorite street corner.
