Have Some Heart
Gift-free ways to show your love
Regardless of what day it is, we have a torrid love affair with this city. So we’ve carefully selected four swoon-worthy ways for you and your sweetheart to fall even harder for the Bay Area (and each other in the process).
Book a ?Bathing Ritual? at Spa Vitale ($60 per person), where you strip down on their secluded rooftop deck for a lavender milk soak in petal-strewn tubs. Follow it up with a hands-on instructional massage class ($220) so you can hit each other?s pressure points at home. 8 Mission St.; 415-278-3788 or hotelvitale.com/spa_vitale.aspx
Sneak out of the office to rendezvous at SFMOMA for one of their special docent-led love tours (free with admission), and bat your eyes at some of the museum?s most romantic holdings, like Frida Kahlo?s Frieda and Diego Rivera. Tours at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 p.m; 151 Third St.; 415-357-4000 or sfmoma.org
To escape without going far, spend the night in one of the contemporary king suites at historic Cavallo Point in Sausalito (starting at $369). Sip on a refreshing Anejo Smash from the luxe lodge’s Farley Bar while you sit on your private patio overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. 601 Murray Circle; 888-651-2003 or cavallopoint.com
At GraffEats's Valentine’s Day Dinner and a Flick ($85 per person), the chef behind the guerrilla dining establishment, Blair Warsham, pairs a five-course meal with short flicks from the Disposable Film Festival. Noise Pop provides the sound track for the evening. (Location revealed upon ticket purchase)
