Winter may have returned to the Charlotte area with a vengeance, but that shouldn’t put a chill on your Valentine’s Day plans. This weekend is all about sharing something special with your special someone, and Ballantyne has a plethora of romantic offerings for every taste.
An Enchanted Evening
Are you seeking a refined experience with just a hint of mystery? The Ballantyne Ball promises an evening not soon forgotten. A classic masquerade ball held in the grand Ballantyne Hotel, this black-tie affair is the definition of timeless. Discounted hotel rates are available as part of your ticketing package, so the evening can continue late into the night.
Best of all, the Ball is a 501(c)(3) charity, benefiting local causes. Last year’s event brought in more than $100,000 for the fight against pediatric cancer. This year’s recipient, The Sandbox, is dedicated to supporting families with a child suffering from cancer.
A Rowdier Affair
Are you and your partner more Black Flag than black tie? Spend the holiday rocking out with great music, food and drink at Bradshaw Social House. With a revolving roster of local acts and open mic night, Bradshaw’s is the perfect date spot for those looking to rock this Valentine’s.
Dinner and a Movie
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a simple evening with your significant other. When it’s time for something low-key, always go with a classic. Ballantyne Village offers a range of restaurants to suit any taste, from sushi to pizza. After your meal, take in a flick at the Regal Ballantyne Theatre upstairs.
Of course, Ballantyne Village can be enjoyed year round. YourOffice Ballantyne is just a short drive away. When your company needs to grow, move to a location close to great amenities like the Village. YourOffice Ballantyne offers scalable solutions for any possible organizational need, and features a technical infrastructure ready to host your next innovative idea.
A morning escape can be just as romantic as a late night rendezvous. Bundle up, fill a thermos with hot coffee, and enjoy an early morning walk in Big Rock Nature Preserve. Listen to the sounds of the sleeping winter forest and commune with your loved one in nature. Just head back inside before you get too cold!
Sunday Morning Fare
Recuperating after an exciting evening, or just looking for a nice mid-morning meal, top off this special weekend with brunch at one of Ballantyne’s many fine restaurants. Another Broken Egg is famous for its handmade biscuit beignets and selection of gourmet omelettes.
If you’re looking for a little altruism with your eggs, sign up for the Relay For Life Ballantyne’s Valentine’s Day Brunch. Hosted at the Bravo Cucina Italiana in the Blakeney Shopping Center, this charitable meal supports the Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society.
