How to have the perfect V-Day in Muskogee:
Channel your inner God of wine, Dionysus, and take your lover out to Pecan Creek Winery, where you can sip on locally grown and brewed wines. Pecan Creek offers a relaxing environment to spend some time away from the city life in. Order a flight of local favorites and let the wine and thoughts of appreciation for your partner swirl in your mind.
We all know something chocolatey is for dessert, but what about dinner? American Pie offers a selection of wood-fired pizzas and other savory American-styled entrees, sure to please all on such a lovely day. Let the romantically lit atmosphere and the smell of handcrafted pizza take you away.
Valentine’s Day can be a day for creating, creating love, perfect moments, and perhaps something to memorialize your devotion for one another. Check out The Creative Soul and reserve a spot to take a painting class. Follow along as you explore the excitement of creating art, don’t be afraid to get messy, there is no wrong answer when it comes to art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyways, so let the beauty of your love flow through your paintbrush.
Chocolate and flowers go together like peanut butter and jelly. Roses, lilies, tulips and other seasonal flowers await to be arranged into a beautiful bouquet that will be cherished by whoever is receiving it. Head down to Poppy’s Garden to create the perfect bouquet and message to be delivered to your loved one.
What better way to end the night than by staring into your lover’s eyes over the glass of a perfectly handcrafted cocktail? Check out The Break downtown, the romantic atmosphere welcomes the sweet caress of love and has a bar full of drinks that will make any heart sing.
