In case you missed it! Here’s a recap of the spots I mentioned on Let’s Talk Live this morning.

Top 5 Things for Couples to do in DC to celebrate Valentine’s Day:

1. International Food & Wine Festival (What better way to celebrate than with all this food & wine??)
2. Ice skating and hot chocolate in Georgetown (Hold hands while skating around the rink and then move inside Farmers, Fishers & Bakers for some warm libations)
3. Drink the District’s Beer Fest at Union Market on 2/14 & 2/15 (What better way to get your guy excited for the big VDay than with beer?)
4. Co Co Sala (If you choose to take the traditional dinner route, then try this place which is dripping with chocolate)
5. Want to keep the celebration early in the day? Take a cruise! Odyssey Cruises has a Valentine’s Day Brunch Cruise on Saturday that includes a complimentary champagne toast.
6. The Gibson will have a live performance from 8p.m. – 10p.m. The evening will also feature “Couples Cocktails”. These are 2 separate, full cocktails that can be combined to make a special 3rd cocktail. These cocktails will be priced at $24. Cocktail Names include “Boy Meets Girl” and “Part Time Lover”.

Top 5 Things for Singles to do in DC to celebrate Valentine’s Day:

2. Cupid Bar Crawl
3. Signed, Sealed, Delivered Party at the Postal Museum (Great way to be single and mingle)
