Struggling to find the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day? Lucky for you Lake Walk is full of creative and new ways to spend your day.
1. Watch the sunset and see the stars
Fun Fact, Lake Walk is home to a 70-foot observation tower offering up some of the best
views in Bryan/ College Station. So if you want to try something different than the usual dinner date, grab some blankets and a picnic basket and spend your evening watching the sunset or stargazing from the top of the tower.
2. Beat the crowds with a POV wine and cheese board
Whether this is your pre-dinner snack or main event, POV Coffee House is a relaxing place to spend the evening. Offering a wide selection of beer and wines, Charcuterie boards, and cheese platters, this is not your everyday coffee shop. Next door to Campfire restaurant and the upscale Coterie boutique, and only a 2 minute walk from Hershel’s bar, POV is a great place to start or end your evening. On February 14th, POV is open from 6am-8pm, and will be offering special Valentine inspired donuts along with a pop-up shop by The Petal Patch outside of the coffee shop.
3. Make a toast in the speakeasy atmosphere of Hershel’s Bar
The Stella’s own in-house Bar, Hershel’s, will be open from 4:30-11:00 pm, and is the perfect upscale yet cozy place to spend the evening. Boasting specialty cocktails and a variety of small bites, you can get warm by the outside firepit as you sip one of their premium wines. If this isn't enough of a date night for you, Hershel’s is just a small walk from our next date idea…
4. Treat yourself to a 5-course meal at Campfire Restaurant
A short walk from Hershel’s, and also housed by The Stella hotel, Campfire is a Fresh ingredient, farm-to-table restaurant offering some of the finest food in Bryan. With a Valentine’s Day menu featuring Oysters and Ribeye steak, you and your date really can’t go wrong. To make a reservation call : 979-421-4444 (See their full menu here)
UPDATE: Valentine's day dinner is sold out, feel free to make reservations on another night!
5. Have the ultimate Staycation with the Wine and Dine Valentine’s Day Weekend at The Stella
