#LeMillRecommends: Date Night Done Right (V-Day Edition)

Love is in the air! Or is it? February 14—that heart-laden day with a fanciful origin tale—can magnify the full spectrum of emotions in any relationship. But whether or not Valentine’s Day envelops your own heart in a rose-colored veil, expressions of love are inescapable this time of year.

While there’s hardly a need to go all out on a gift, small tokens of affection are always appreciated—no matter how long your love has been blooming. For those with a strong feel for the day, might we suggest an offbeat approach to date-night? Whether it’s with your S.O. or your Gal-entines here are a few places to switch-up your V-Day.

A Day at a Ceramic Studio

The Pottery Lab (@potterlabx) is a creative space in the greens of Pali Hill, housed in the backyard of a beautiful old bungalow. At the helm is ceramic artist Rekha Goyal, who guides you through the basics of ceramic art. Spend your day at this scenic property as you create art with your loved one.
