Like it or not, Valentine's Day is going to happen again next week. Your best bet is to like it and make the most of it. But Westfield Garden State Plaza is going to do you one better. They have a whole slate of events that will make Valentine's Day your most memorable one yet. You might even, dare we say? Love it!
Treat the person you love (especially if that person is YOU) to a meal cooked by Gaucho chefs on an open-air churrascho grill at Fogo de Chao. Fogo de Chao, Garden State Plaza's newest premiere dining spot, will open on Monday, February 13th, just in time to share the love with their Full Churrasco Experience, the signature prix-fixe menu that included all premium and classic cuts, plus their seasonal Market Table & Feijoada Bar and authentic Brazilian side dishes. Make sure to leave enough time to enjoy a craft cocktail at their lively, indoor bar Fogo and Next Level Lounge!
If you want to make it a date, start your evening at Garden Social, located in Macy's Court, Level 2, near Carlito's and Shake Shack. You can choose your own DIY experience brought to you by Garden Social and KraftyLab. Classes include Terrarium Making, DIY Farmhouse Sign Creation, Chocolate Truffle Making (you had us at chocolate), or Candle Making. Grab your honey, or a friend or two, and craft the day away. Or, share a movie or VR experience at AMC Theaters and Dreamscape at AMC Theaters with you boo or besties.
Speaking of friends, Eddie V's, the world-class seafood restaurant, will be hosting a festive Galentine's Day on Sunday, February 12th. You and your squad can listen to live music, sip champagne and toast to forever friends. If you do happen to be partnered, the mood will turn romantic on Monday so make your reservations now. Capital Grille is also accepting reservations for Valentine's Day.
Seasons 52 will be pouring their signature Organic French Connection, Sparkling or Caymus wine flights to pair with the seasonal favorites on their menu, but if slippers and sweats sound like the way to go for you, celebrate the day in your own way in your home, with take-out dinners for two or a family-style Green Box to go.
At the end of the day, Valentine's is about taking a day to show your favorite people how much you love them. So, plan something special, enjoy being with your companions of choice, and don't forget to save the biggest hug of the day for yourself. Happy Valentine's Day from Westfield Garden State Plaza!
