We will begin your guide to a Bowling Green Valentine's Day by stating the obvious, this is the chocolate lover's holiday. There is no better way to celebrate the BG way than with a visit to Mary Jane's Chocolates (pictured above). From chocolate-covered strawberries to sea salt caramels, life is always good with a box of chocolates from MJ's.
The Historic RailPark & Train Museum's annual Romance at the RailPark returns Feb. 11-12 & 14. Guests will enjoy a decadent dinner on one of this nonprofit attraction's railcars. Seating options range from dinner for two on the Duncan Hines Dining Car all the way up to six people in a private dining room on the Presidential Car. There will be a cash bar hosted by Alvaton's Reid's Livery Winery, and a package upgrade is available to include appetizers and roses at your table. This year's theme is Dirty Dancing and will include a special performance by SOKY Dance Arts and the movie screening in the museum's private theater. This is a perfectly vintage date night.
