Can you believe we’ve already made it through the first month of 2023? January always feels like a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it whirlwind, but February is the season of love. When the weather is feeling especially chilly, what’s better than spending a little quality time with the one you cherish most? Read on for a handful of highly-recommended Denver area dates near Shea Homes® Colorado communities that promise charming shared experiences and — of course — love!
Love Notes around the Block
All February long, each of the eight restaurants in Downtown Denver’s Dairy Block are serving specialty cocktails inspired by famous love songs. Try the “Everything I Brew, I Brew It for You” from Westbound & Down (inspired by Bryan Adams’ famous ‘90s ballad) and be whisked back to simpler times. Or maybe Deviation Distilling’s Beyoncé-inspired “Crazy in Love” is more your speed?
Schedule your cocktail date night during one of the Dairy Block’s regular musical performances — like Thursday’s jazzy Mavens of Music — and you’ll turn up the romance dial to eleven. Want to treat your sweetie to sweets? Reserve a cozy table at the Block’s Kachina Cantina on the 14th for a delectable Valentine’s Day dinner featuring Mexican chocolate tres leches cake for dessert.
Fancy a more hands-on experience? Join MENO’s founder on Sunday, February 12th for a masterclass on clean candle making. During the two-hour course, Jerri will walk you through the process of hand-pouring candles so you can leave with something tangible in addition to your bonding time. If that wasn’t enough, your reservation includes a light brunch and mimosas! Make it a Valentine’s (or a Galentine’s) date today — we can’t think of a better accessory than a high-quality candle to add a little chic-ness to your gorgeous Shea home.
Valentine’s Day: Not Just for Couples Anymore
If your idea of a perfect Valentine’s date includes the whole family, Denver’s Botanic Gardens has a perfect child-friendly activity that your entire brood is sure to enjoy. From February 10th - 12th, visitors will be able to adorn a unique Valentine’s Day ornament with natural materials like colorful flower petals and fun dried leaves. At the end of this soothing afternoon activity, you’ll return home with the ideal keepsake to remember this family date for many years to come! If that’s not love, what is?
If you’re looking for an evening of decidedly more adult fun, we recommend Denver’s iconic Clocktower Cabaret. The cabaret performers will sing, dance, and perform feats of themed aerial bravery, all while keeping you laughing. Nestled under Daniels & Fisher Tower on the Sixteenth Street Mall, Cupid’s Delight Burlesque and Comedy Show is sure to bring a little color to your cheeks as you sip an upscale cocktail during this evening of risqué festivities. Get your tickets at the link before it’s too late.
We’re confident that one or more of these activities are sure to make your heart flutter — so move over Paris, because Denver is starting to look like the real city of love! This Valentine’s Day is bound to be one to remember for a very long time, especially when you have a wonderful home to return to at the end of the evening. No matter how you choose to celebrate your familial and romantic relationships, Shea Homes® wishes all the residents of our Colorado communities — from The Canyons™ in Castle Pines to the sunny homes of Littleton’s Solstice™ community — a very happy season of love.
Won’t you be our Valentine? Reach out and make this your home base for all the special years to come!
