What could be sweeter than a stroll by the riverfront and a delicious treat with your boo? February’s Signature Cone of the Month at Mister Dips is the aptly named Love Dove. Savor red velvet Oreo, choco-cherry dip and hearts of gold. (And if your date’s more of a savory kind, you can’t go wrong with waffle fries. Maybe even the dirty-dipped kind—loaded with scallion and queso.)
Because Nothing Beats a Sugar Rush
Where: Funny Face Bakery
If you’re going to pick up some sweet treats for your Valentine, you might as well go for some laughs, too. Come up with a message (up to 10 characters)—and Funny Face Bakery will pipe it onto one of their Sweet Hearts cookies for you. The customized piping takes place Friday through Sundays, 11am–7pm, and on Valentine’s Day for the last-minute gifters. Need even more sweetness in your life? The bakery has two seasonal flavors for February—the Two Faced Chip, a marriage of cocoa, white chocolate and espresso, and the Chocolate Kiss, where chocolate and sugar come together in perfect harmony.
