Let Those You Love Know You Care This Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a special day to let those you love know you care. This year we rounded up some of the best discounts in the area to help you plan the perfect day!
Flowers are the golden standard when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. From delicate blooms to fragrant roses, flowers are a great way to show your love and affection. Check out Flowers by LeRoy for gorgeous arrangements for every taste and budget.
From hand-crafted truffles to decadent cupcakes, the sweet treats on Valentine’s Day are crowd favorites. For the chocolate lover in your life, stop by Sweet Treats Rapid City on Mount Rushmore Road or Chubby Chipmunk Hand Dipped Chocolates downtown for an impressive array of options. If you prefer light, fluffy cupcakes and cookies instead, Star Spangled Batter in west Rapid and Sweet Secrets Bakery on Mount Rushmore Road have everything you need.
While it’s uncertain if we’ll be able to dine-in again by Valentine’s Day, there are many local options for lunch or a nice dinner in the area you can treat yourself to all the same. Many offer curbside pickup or orders to-go, so you don’t have to miss out on a good meal. If you’re missing the coffee house vibe, Harriet & Oak, Pure Bean and Alternative Fuel all offer great coffee and a variety of food perfect for brunch at home. For lunch, The Gyro Hub is a favorite spot, but also check out Murphy’s Pub and Grill or Kathmandu Bistro downtown for great local cooking.For nice date-night food you can take home and enjoy, Minerva’s next to the mall and Dakotah Steakhouse near the Hwy 16 bypass are both excellent options.
Jewelry and Gifts
Looking to get your someone special something special? Neugabauer’s Jewelry Design & Service downtown offers an active duty discount that will make sure you get more bang for your buck, not to mention beautifully crafted jewelry and incredible customer service. For a slightly more fun approach, check out Beard BQ sauce. Their line of sauces and rubs are sure to delight the grillmaster in your life.
Celebrate at Home
If you’re spending the holiday at home, romantic movies and sweat pants aren’t a terrible way to go. Check out Elks Theater for their popcorn — it has somewhat of a cult status in Rapid, so swing by and get some before you settle in for your favorite rom-com. Add on a perfect pizza pie from Piesano’s Pacchia Inc over in west Rapid or Mackenzie River Pizza if that’s your style; neither place will disappoint. If you want to feel a little refined, stop in Firehouse Wine Cellars downtown to grab a bottle of wine to go with that pizza — or whatever else you’re having. They have a great selection and friendly staff who will help you find a pairing for dinner. Even if it is pizza.
