🌵 Get fantastical with botanicals

If you’re quick, you might have your pick of bouquets using Floom, an online marketplace that partners with florists that deliver locally.

Or, get creative and nab a potted plant from these plant spots. Nothing says forever like a hardy succulent.

      🥂 Keep spirits up

      If you didn’t score reservations, don’t overthink… grab a drink. The following spots have weekday happy hours:

      • Grandview Cafe, 1455 W. 3rd Ave. | Enjoy happy hour Monday-Friday from 2-6 p.m. with $4 draft beers, select spirits, and select wines.
      • Club 185, 185 E. Livingston Ave. | The happy hour menu is available Monday-Friday from 4-7 p.m. with half-off drafts, $6 glasses of wine, $2 domestics, and $2.50 wells.

      For more options, check out our happy hour guide.

      🌟 Go stargazing

      It doesn’t get much more idyllic than bundling up and looking at the stars. Grab some blankets (and maybe a hot drink) and head to one of these spots away from man-made light to take in the sky.
