The Grapevine Gazette
As the delirious haze from the Holidays fades, opportunity abounds for some recreation and romance in the month of February. The mountains await the ski bums; the local trails are illuminated by our warm winter sunshine, and the ocean is spellbinding when Mother Nature stirs up her winter storms. True to the adage, In Southern California you can ski in the morning and spend the afternoon at the beach. As for those romantic interludes, St Valentine’s Day is a stimulating way to engage and replenish your heart felt feelings for one another. The day was first associated with romantic love from Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards known as “valentines”. To assist you in these romantic interludes, we offer some suggestions that we hope you find intriguing and delicious. And as always, smell the roses and drink outside the box.
