This Week in the HDSID: LOVE is all around!
The infamous day of love is this week! Whether you have a special someone or not, take the day to celebrate love. We all need more of that in our lives. Express your appreciation to your loved ones every day but maybe go the extra mile on Valentine’s Day!
For some additional Valentine/ Galentine Day ideas check out last week’s blog: https://bit.ly/2WG9naw
Whatever you choose to do, the district has you covered!
From flowers to jewelry to chocolates to clothes- the Historic Downtown has a plethora of options for you!
We have Mint Market (339 Grove Street) for your clothing needs. Maybe Tia’s Place (277 Grove Street) is more up your alley? How about Love Locked (353 Grove Street) and Another Man’s Treasure (195 Montgomery Street) ? For flowers, don’t event think about going to one of those big companies! Bouquets and Baskets (548 Jersey Avenue) Brennan’s Florist (220 Newark Avenue) and Casa Mona (277 Newark Avenue) the BEST arrangements. Wine? Thank you for asking- the Historic Downtown district has the best variety of adult beverage purveyors you could ask for: CoolVines (276 Grove Street), Jersey Wine & Spirits (492 Jersey Avenue), Red Feast Wine & Liquors (129 Christopher Columbus Drive) and Village Wine & Liquors (348 Grove Street.)
Looking something different? How about a massage at Salvation Wellness (formerly Knead- 521 Jersey Avenue)? Or book a tandem session at Sw3at Sauna Studio (172 Newark Ave 3rd Floor).
Whether you have someone special or not- you can still enjoy the day with friends or just buy some chocolates from L’atelier du chocolat (321 Marin Boulevard) and watch tv!
Here are some other events happening this week:
