Valentines Weekend at Clovis Point
Valentine’s Day is a Friday this year, so maybe you’ve been considering a romantic getaway. If so, Clovis Point Winery has been thinking along the same lines.
Since chocolates are a Valentine’s Day staple, let’s start there. Both Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16, Clovis Point is partnering with the North Fork Chocolate Company for Wine & Chocolate Weekend pairings – a flight of four wines with four different chocolates for just $25. (Reservations are recommended; call 631 722 4222.) Tastings are available from 11 am to 5:30 pm, but if you want to do more than whisper sweet nothings, The Earthtones (Saturday) and Bob Blatchley – Perfect Strangers (Sunday) add a musical backdrop from 1:30 pm on.
If music sounds good to you (and good music sounds even better), come back on Saturday night. Ahmad Ali & The Double A Blues Band perform on the 15th from 7-10 pm. Ali is a long-time veteran of the New York music scene, was heard on New York’s WBAI for over a decade, and still hosts his own radio show “Café Ali” in Stony Brook. Tickets are $30 per person.
