Three bakeries selling Valentine’s Day treats
Few days of the year offer a better excuse to gorge on cookies, cakes and chocolate goodness than Valentine’s Day. Several local bakeries say they will still have plenty of stock through the day Friday for last-minute treat buyers.
Updated guide to Valentine’s Day dining
Last week, we published a list of Wichita restaurants offering special Valentine’s Day menus or meals. That list is still available at kansas.com/restaurants, and it has a few additions since last week. Use it to help make your last-minute plans, and take heart: Several of the restaurants are offering their Valentine’s specials throughout the weekend.
A Death by Chocolate discount
Those who want to attend the super-sweet Death by Chocolate fundraiser at Exploration Place, which this year is scheduled for March 8, can get discount tickets on Friday. The daylong discount deducts $14 from two tickets, which cost $80 each. That would bring the total for two tickets to $146. The event, which raises money for Exploration Place, is at the museum, 300 N. McLean Blvd., and offers attendees unlimited chocolate food and drink provided by Wichita restaurants and chocolate makers. To take advantage of the offer, visit www.exploration.org/deathbychocolate.html.
West side Metro Grill now open
Gonzalez also said he’s going to experiment with late-night hours on the weekends, which is something the west side of Wichita doesn’t have a lot of. He’ll be open from 11 a.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. For more information, call 316-295-3265.
