St. Valentine’s Dinner & Dance
Treat your sweetheart to a romantic, candle-lit dinner in the Hawk’s Head Public House on Saturday February 11th or Tuesday February 14th.
As legend has it, when the Roman Emperor Claudius needed more men for his army, he outlawed marriage. A brave priest named Valentine defied the old tyrant and soon became known as the friend of sweethearts. When consigned to jail, and awaiting his execution, the priest was befriended by the jailer’s daughter, and the last words he wrote to her were signed, “your Valentine.”
Celebrate this tradition of romance on Riley’s Farm this year, with great Italian food, love songs by the Harmony Sisters, and dancing! Share a sonnet for your loved one, or test your skill as Cupid in our archery contest for a chance to win a delicious prize from our bakery. With a candle-lit tavern, a mouth-watering meal, fine wine, and a sweetheart by your side, you can’t go wrong!
