Got Valentine’s Day plans?
Yes, you do, whether it’s love-themed or not, and it couldn’t be a more loaded time of year. With the Super Bowl also happening, and so many seasonal deals and offers on the table from brands across the board, it would be a shame if you missed out on any special offers – especially in the face of inflation. Luckily, we’re covering a handful of things to do and buy for Valentine’s Day this year, including some pricier selections and budget-friendly options. Besides, it’s the thought that counts!
Hotel Per La & Per L’Ora
Offering a top-of-the line, luxurious experience, Hotel Per La is the perfect Valentine’s Day goal for extravagance and a time to remember. This year, in addition to specialty aphrodisiac dishes and drinks being available at Per L’Ora all weekend long, Hotel Per La is offering a Date Night Package, comprised of a $125 credit to Per L’Ora, and luxury suite accommodations – including a sparking bottle of wine and a box of chocolates delivered straight to your room door.
To make matters even better, Hotel Per La recently launched their Apertivio Hour, which is offered nightly from 4-6pm in the Per L’Ora bar, lounge, and game room spaces. Whether it’s date night or some other occasion, they make it easy to enjoy drinks and light bites “Italian-style” before dinner, or for a casual after-work get together with friends.
Jump on it while you’ve still got time. This offer is available from Friday, February 10th through Tuesday, February 14th.
F&B Offerings (in addition to regular menu) include:
Petrossian Ossetra Caviar; Crème fraiche, chives, waffle chips
Oysters; Lambrusco mignonette (½ dz)
Truffle Tagliatelle; House-made tagliatelle, truffle butter, fresh winter truffles
Dover Sole; Lemon caviar butter, spinach
and Classic Martinis for two (dry or dirty)
Ballroom Marfa x Damian
Date night knows no bounds. Be inspired, be wowed, and fall deeper in love with Ballroom Marfa – an internationally recognized contemporary art space located in Marfa, a rural town of less than 2,000 people in Far West Texas. Established in 2003 by Virginia Lebermann and Fairfax Dorn, the art performance venue is housed in a 1920’s era ballroom. As an advocate for the freedom of artistic expression, Ballroom’s mission is to commission new work of artists, musicians, and visionary thinkers of all backgrounds. Ballroom Marfa collaborates across disciplines, and produces exhibitions, performances, education programs, and publications.
The works at Damian, which include pieces by Carolina Caycedo, Rafa Esparza, Beatriz Cortez and more, will be on view from February 15 until mid-March. Many of the artists were selected for their connection to Los Angeles, where they live and work. The works of art are expansive and experimental in their concept, materials, and form, and many touch upon identity and diaspora concepts. The works will be on sale to benefit Ballroom Marfa’s programs that are free and open to the public.
Located in Downtown LA’s Arts District, Damian explores the rich culinary bonds between Mexico and California. Helmed by Chef Jesús “Chuy” Cervantes, Damian features dishes that are rooted in Mexican culture and traditions while celebrating the best seasonal Californian produce. Chef Cervantes has crafted a menu showcasing vegetable-driven and seafood focused dishes with highlights including homemade tortillas, striped bass ceviche, smoked clams, Tlayuda, and more.
The beverage program has a strong focus on agave, serving small batch productions by artisans throughout Mexico, along with a curated wine list including a house label Dramian. During the first week of exhibition, Damian will be offering special additions to their menu that were inspired by Chef Cervantes’s time in Marfa, including a Tlayuda paired with a Joven, an Amaranth Salad, and a Prickly Pear Raspado, designed by beverage director Yana Volfson.
