Ah, Valentine’s Day… love it or hate it.
It really is a polarizing holiday, isn’t it?
With the special day falling on a Saturday this year, the stakes are raised for lovers looking to impress. If you’re looking to grab a seat at one of the Duke City’s swankiest eateries, get in line -literally.
Old Town’s intimate destination Antiquity has absolutely no tables to offer, according to the Albuquerque Journal. Their 55-seat capacity was already spoken for by mid-January.
Seasons Rotisserie & Grill is also packed. They’re not just booked, they’re “long booked”, says assistant general manager Ian Hatch. The holiday hitting on a Saturday has boosted reservations on the preceding and following days as well, giving a much-welcomed spike in business.
Vintage 423 has some options available, if you’re willing to dine at 4pm or 9:30. Scalo, which has a large floor plan to accommodate diners is packed as well.
Fortunately, there are a number of other options available to wow your sweetheart this weekend. The Barrett Foundation’s International Night of Passion at the Hotel Albuquerque offers internationally-inspired cuisine, music and raffle prizes. If you want to join the party later in the evening after dinner, discount tickets are available after 9pm.
Santa Fe Community Orchestra will host Let’s Dance – your opportunity to learn and dance the jitterbug to a live big-band orchestra. Enjoy a night at the theater with ‘The Last Five Years’, ‘American Buffalo’ or any other offerings from the stage.
