Nothing like spending time with someone special to shake off the winter doldrums of February. But no need to limit a romantic getaway to just Valentine’s Day, as love is always in season in Woodstock. When a major slogan of your community is Peace, Love and Music you just know there’s something special in the air. Here are a few ways to share some meaningful time with your loved one.
1.Listen to the music
It’s Woodstock, so of course live music abounds. From rock to reggae, folk to freak there are always live concerts happening throughout town. Whether you want to attend the popular open mic Monday or their featured musician shows, the Colony Café is always a treat. Also the Bearsville Theater and the intimate setting at the Levon Helm Ramble always feature world-class musicians in the most famous small town in America.
A special treat in February is Colony’s Valentine’s Day Shows featuring Reggie Earls. The early show will highlight jazz, while the late night one will have an R&B theme, and include special guest Lindsay Webster. While her soulful singing has deepened since this popular video of Fool Me Once was filmed, it’s always a treat to see someone singing and dancing around the beautiful sculpture of Opus 40. Enjoy listening to it.
2. Enjoy some Small Talk
The intimate setting of the cocktail bar Small Talk simply encourages sharing secrets. Whether you’re in a tiny booth with your companion, or the two of you are sitting beside each other on a stool looking out on Tinker Street, this setting simply breaks down barriers.
If you’re in the mood for a mocktail or a cocktail, the bartenders know how to mix it up. While their Naked and Famous may not reflect the person sitting next to you, it does offer great potential.
This is the perfect spot to stop in to decompress from the day or start your night. Eats are mostly limited to just munchy snacks, with the exception of a delicious chicken pot pie for two which is the perfect winter warm you up.
3. Work up a sweat, hydrate or both
The best part of a good sweaty workout is after its over! And the folks at Woodstock Infusion are sure to leave you with that oh-so-good feeling. Whether you want to twist things up with a hot yoga class or explore the Sweat and Surrender class (adaptable for all fitness levels) there are plenty of class options available for guests, including traditional mat Pilates and stretch classes. The Mill Hill Road facility also offers a variety of IV therapies for scheduling and a fresh juice bar for those who prefer hydrating in a more traditional manner.
4. Sweeten yourself
Oh, c’mon! Of course you can split a fresh Bomboloni from Caffe with your loved one, but why not get one each and share! Who could resist a huge sugary concoction (it’s so much more than a doughnut) overflowing with a tasty filling? Whether you’re a jelly, Nutella or heavy cream fan – or yes to all! – this is the perfect stop to sweeten your day.
The casual setting includes a wide variety of coffees and the sun-filled, efficient room with sleek wooden tables is the perfect setting to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Caffe was created by locals, for locals – and visitors in the know! This is a must-stop when in Woodstock.
