Valentine's Day Chocolate Pairing

Red wine and chocolates are perhaps traditional but we'll venture that local craft beer and chocolates might be more fun. Crave Artisan Chocolate is teaming up with Craft Pride for custom flights with specialty sweets available only on Valentine's Day, plus sips from breweries including Austin Beerworks and Blue Owl. First come, first served.

Tide to Table

No comment on oysters' supposed aphrodisiac qualities but we do think slurping a dozen down sounds like a sweet way to spend Valentine's Day. Meet chef Maite Aizpurua in the hotel's courtyard lounge to learn how to shuck. Tickets include beer and wine pairings, cheese and charcuterie.
