Be my Valentine
The exact history of the day is unclear; there are many conflicting origin narratives. One story suggests that Shakespeare was responsible for romanticising the concept. He ensured that it became an occasion cloaked in adoration, spreading love to all those who would receive it.
These days, some of us love it, some of us dread it. It can make those who don’t have a romantic partner feel bad about it, and it shouldn’t at all. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate LOVE, romantic or not. Love isn’t bound by any ties, so neither should you. This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, which means you can turn the whole weekend into a celebration.
At the Michelangelo Hotel, the Piccolo Mondo restaurant has a culinary delight in-store with their Valentine’s Day Dinner, offering a welcome drink, 5 course meal and live entertainment. For the cherry on top, don’t let the night end there. Enjoy a night's stay at the Prestigious 5 Star Michelangelo Hotel when booking the Valentine’s Celebrations Room Package. The package also includes a Romantic Turndown, followed by a Full English Breakfast the next morning.
Across the Square, DAVINCI Hotel & Suite’s Maximillien Restaurant is having their own Valentine’s Dinner celebration. This New York-inspired restaurant is serving a stunning three-course meal that starts with a Mezze platter, palate cleanser, a choice of one of three mains, and then a beautiful dessert platter consisting of caramel popcorn & pecan nut éclair, strawberry cheesecake, and chocolate chip torte!
Continuing with Sandton, because it is the place to be this Valentine’s Day, Parc Ferme is also presenting a unique dining experience. The restaurant has an African concept that blends cuisine from different African countries with some heartfelt options of favourite dishes in South Africa. Upon arrival at the restaurant, you will be welcomed with a tasty Watermelon Gin Martini, followed by a luscious 5-course meal, inspired by the theme of love. The option to stay over at The Michelangelo Towers is also available with their Valentine’s Accommodation Promotion.
Make sure you book in advance this Valentine’s Day: everyone wants to spread the love.
