Happy Valentine's Day!! Part III

We are now on Part III of our options for the love-your-honey weekend getaway you are planning (see Part I and Part II). The first decision was where to stay out of the plethora of getaway options that Carolina Mornings has to offer, and which packages/ property specials to take advantage of. The next decision to make was whether you wanted to stay put and just R E L A X with your honey (covered in Part II). If you decide that you want to make a date of it out on the town before returning to your beautiful retreat, here are some options for you. The best idea that I have seen yet is the Caring 4 Children Moulin Rouge Gala Benefit, hosted Saturday night, Feb 13 (perfect for going out one night, and staying in on Valentine's... the best of both worlds, which your honey deserves!!). The night is Parisian- inspired, complete with a French dinner, burlesque show, and music performed by the Goodies, as well as silent auctions, live auctions and more. What's best is that your money goes to a great cause- helping children out here in Buncombe County. This is the best of all worlds- having an unforgettable night within an unforgettable weekend while also supporting a really great cause.
The Grey Eagle: 69 Love Songs, based on the great album by the Magnetic Fields, will be rocking the night away in celebration of love. This will be a low- key show, meaning that if you are looking for something upscale this is not the thing to do. But, the album is great, The Grey Eagle is great, and the night should be lots of fun!
Another option is quite an alternative to the standard Valentine's Day celebration... at the Asheville Arts Center you can be wowed with the Bombs Away Cabaret, doing a performance of 'Eat Your Heart Out'. This show will leave you anything but bored!
You could start out with dinner at the cabin, or you could opt for dinner in town: Asheville has some pretty incredible local restaurants, and Saturday night you can find whatever your heart's do desire.
Sunday seems pretty low-key downtown, but check our Part IV for ideas on where to wine and dine your honey if you aren't up to fixing a meal at the cabin...
