Our Annual Valentine's Getaway

It seems like a tradition now, that my husband and I always go on a "baycation" every Valentine's Day! And for some reason, we are always drawn to the city! I think it's the night lights, the sounds, the food, and feeling far, but still close to home! But, not only that, you can go anywhere in the city and not have to be dressed! Not that I don't like to, but it's way more fun to eat in comfy clothes!!

We wanted to try an Italian restaurant we have never been to before, so we decided to check out Trattoria Contandina. Not a huge place, either. If we took our kids, we would take up a third of the restaurant, lol. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and we will definitely be back!

This was us after we played tourist in the city! We headed to dinner after this.

The bread was so good. Or, we could have been starving!

This dish is what their restaurant is known for. I can see why! Delicious!

Glad to know about Valentine’s Day fun. I am planning to book one of alluring New York Event Venues in the coming months for a social gathering. Hope it enhances my circle and able to gain more contracts.
