Here are some tips for those visiting Lincoln Road in the coming weeks.
If you’re on Lincoln Road for Valentine’s Day, Sunday February 14th, remember to buy your honey some flowers at the Sunday Morning Farmer’s Market where even the most exotic blooms are always fresh and inexpensive.
Start the morning at Paul Bakery (450 Lincoln Road) where a flaky chocolate croissant and a steamy cafe au lait inspires Love at First Bite. Do some window shopping at trendy designer boutique Alchemist (438 Lincoln Road) or pop into Fritz’s Skate Shop (1680 Washington Avenue) and see the city together on wheels!
If your Valentine likes art, explore the galleries at Britto Central (818 Lincoln Road) where pop art meets pop culture or the upscale Carel Gallery (922 Lincoln Road) and the funky South Florida Art Center (800 Lincoln Road) where young artists open the doors to their studios and invite you in to witness the creative process. Check out the art books, autographed contemporary fiction and new works by your favorite authors at Books & Books (927 Lincoln Road) and then grab a sidewalk table just outside for some brunch.
If you’re feeling frisky, check out the lingerie at Victoria’s Secret (901 Lincoln Road) or buy some aromatherapy candles, bath salts and massage oils at Browne’s Apothecary (841 Lincoln Road) and schedule a little R n’ R time later on. If you have big plans for dinner, perhaps a quick hair styling, a mani & pedi or a relaxing beauty treatment will put you in the mood. To update your Valentine look, check out the sexy apparel at BeBe (1029 Lincoln Road) or try on the one-of-a-kind looks at BASE (939 Lincoln Road) where the men’s and women’s fashions come from innovative new designers you’re definitely going to love.
Sporty Valentine’s should check out the athletic apparel at Body Up (704 Lincoln Road), Runaway Swimwear (645 Lincoln Road), and Sports Express (400 Lincoln Road). If you both enjoy a little friendly competition, nip into Lucky Strike Lanes (1691 Michigan Avenue) and see who’s got the chops to be the best bowler! After the game, stop in next door at IceBox Cafe (1657 Michigan Avenue) and try the cake Oprah says is the Best in America! One giant piece of cake and two forks can be very romantic…
There’s bound to be a little hand holding in store at the Regal Cinema 18 (1120 Lincoln Road) where the new movie “Valentine’s Day” casts a light hearted look at modern romance. With stadium seating, a box of hot buttered popcorn and a few hours of quiet time together, a romantic comedy is an ideal way to share a midday Valentine escape.
As the afternoon wears on, spend some alone time on a cozy couch at D’Vine Hookah Lounge (445 Lincoln Road) or share a custom wine tasting at Eno’s Wine Bar (920 Lincoln Road) where the custom dispensing machines make it possible to compose a selection of your favorite reds or whites from Super Tuscans to boutique Northern California Chardonnays or Pinot Noirs. If beer is your drink of choice, find Zeke’s Roadhouse (625 Lincoln Road) where hundreds of international brands are just $4 a bottle. Toast the one you love and take some time to reconnect over a quiet cocktail while the world wanders by.
Whether Valentine’s Day is a first date or a celebration of a longtime love, Lincoln Road Mall offers a great variety of food and drink, shopping and entertainment to share with someone special. Make a date to check it out!
