Top Ten Ideas to Keep Happy – Valentine’s Day

Here are 10 great Ideas to keep Valentine’s Day fun, interesting and entertaining:

  1. Kisses – Sweeter than Wine– seek out small amounts of exquisite chocolate at Noe Valleys’ famed,  Chocolate Covered or at the extra-special Recchiuti at the Ferry Building
  2. Just KiddingI Dream a Dream– Play and let your child-like creativity and imagination soar at the magical Disney Museum located at the Presidio.
  3. Floral Fantasy Spring is in the Air – Hallelujah! – Stroll through Golden Gate Park to see acres of tulips, daffodils and pink popcorn-like cherry blossoms in full bloom.
  4. Happy Together You Make Me So Very Happy – Enjoy a progressive meal: arrive on Muni or Bart to Market Street and walk through Union Square, grab a coffee at Rulli, continue up very colorful Grant Street to Chinatown, cross bawdy Broadway to North Beach to have appetizers and a beverage; continue to Fisherman’s Wharf for a crab cocktail; treat yourself. Irish Coffee anyone? Take the Cable Car back.
  5. Poetry in Motion I’m in the Mood for Love – Pick up a slim volume of poems by Billy Collins, Kay Ryan, or Mary Oliver – Memorize one poem.
  6. Watch it – I Only Have Eyes for You – and Seasonal Celluloid. Romantic chick flicks are fun, light, romantic and inexpensive. Imagine: An Affair to Remember or join the Jane Austen Book Club. Be happy together.
  7. Come Fly with Me – Love Potion Number Nine- get thee to – Swan’s Oyster Depot on Polk Street.
  8. Get Nautical – Hey, Big Spender – Take the Sausalito Ferry and – walk the line – from the ferry to fabulous Tommy’s Wok – best Chinese Food in all of Marin.
  9. Gifted? Make Someone Happy – read The 29 Gifts and skip to the generous of spirit theme. Next: pay it forward.
  10. Smile and Say Hello, Hello, to three strangers every day this week. And next week, too.
