Your Quintessential Date Night
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and regardless of whether you’re celebrating on the 14th or not, surely a date night is long overdue. We’ve curated the quintessential (at home) date night in Edmonton featuring amazing local retailers from Currents of Windermere.
Pre-Date Prep (Look Good, Feel Good)
Date night deserves a fresh fit, even if you are going to be lounging at home. Get ready to swap out your on-rotation sweatpants for… a brand new pair. Or dress up with a new outfit just for fun. WINNERS is the perfect spot to check out to snag high-quality brand name pieces at a fraction of the cost of full-price retailers. From clothing and outerwear to shoes and accessories, we love the unmatched finds that you’re sure to discover each time you visit!
Nails looking a bit run down? Cue Frilly Lilly. Book your appointment and pop into this stylish boutique that specializes in all things waxing, nails, facials, and more. Opt for the Gel Polish Manicure and get your cuticles looking CUTE. On your way out, pick up their Sugar Lilly Fragrance that combines warm vanilla and sheer florals with a touch of sweetness. Say hello to your new signature scent.
Dinner is Served
Nothing epitomizes date night quite like a well-deserved steak and seafood dinner. The Keg at Currents has got you covered. With their Valentine’s Day Weekend takeout special, from February 12-15th you can enjoy a 3-course meal at home. Start with a classic caesar salad, then choose from a Filet Mignon or a New York Striploin with a Lobster Tail. The food coma doesn’t end here. Round out your meal with a slice of the iconic Billy Miner Pie! Save this slice for tomorrow if you’re more privy to ice cream (keep reading). Pre-ordering begins February 6th!
Do you love the thrill of cooking your own steak to perfection at home? Choose from one of three cook-at-home Celebration Kits complete with all the ingredients you’ll need to prepare your 3-course Keg Dinner, just the way you like it. For meals that are a bit more personalized, check out their full online menu for all their signature starters and entrees like Mushroom Neptune, Calamari, Pistachio Crusted Salmon, and more. Order online for curbside pickup at Currents of Windermere.
Partners in Wine
Dinner is best accompanied by a bottle of vino. Pop into Wine and Beyond and explore their large selection of wines from around the world. We recommend Pound Cake California wines; their Pinot Noir with aromas of red cherries and raspberries with a hint of vanilla pairs perfectly with beef and poultry dishes. Bon appetit!
Treats for your Sweets
Dessert? We’ve got the inside scoop! Marble Slab Creamery makes your sweet course easy with pre-packed litre and half-litres of ice cream. With over 45 flavours of ice cream, low-fat yoghurt, and vegan ice cream…whatever you’re craving, they’ve got it. Call and place your order ahead of time for a quick pick-up.
Gifts to Go Around
Time to exchange gifts? Round out a pretty epic evening by exchanging gifts with your loved one.
For her: We love Jilly’s Boutique. Pick up a gift card and let your loved one choose from their selection of accessories, clothing, bath & body care, home decor, and more. Want to go all out? This year Jilly’s has created a Ladies Valentine’s Day Gift Box with a signature candle, bath & body care, wine tumbler, and more!
For him: Pick up a Cabela’s gift card and let him do the shopping. With tons of trendy brands like The North Face, Carharrt, and Columbia, he’s sure to find a comfy new outfit suitable for the WFH life or spending time in the great outdoors.
