Here are some-we will add more!
Plan on a ride to remember if you choose the Fillmore & Western Railway as your Valentine’s Day destination. This is your chance to finally make it to one of the Murder Mystery Dinner Train events. The “Love Train” will stretch the “Love Boat” theme to extremes, with strangely familiar characters all in ‘70s style costumes, setting the mood with music, while dancing (or dying) to the Disco beat! You will enjoy a three-course meal and, with less-than-serious sleuthing, solve a murder, or just sit back and enjoy the entertainment.
The train departs at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $89. Fillmore & Western Railway is located at 364 Main Street in Fillmore. Make reservations by calling
(805) 524-2546 or visit www.fwry.com.
Stay at home this year and throw something special on the grill – like heart-shaped steaks. Contact Bob’s Country Meats in advance to order yours. The shop is located at 19012 Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country; (661) 251-5995.
If it’s an exotic dish, such as ostrich or bison, or elaborate wine offerings you are looking for this year, head to this Zagat-rated venue. For Valentine’s Day, Le Chene French Cuisine is offering a special menu for dinner, seating from 5:30-10:00 p.m. Le Chene is located at 12625 Sierra Hwy in Santa Clarita, near the border of Agua Dulce. For reservations call (661) 251-4315.
Date Night Painting
Pinot’s Palette will host date night painting, where two canvases make up one painting (each member of the couple paints one side). The creative staff at Pinot’s is also offering a package which will include champagne and chocolates. This Valentine’s Day event will run from 7-10 p.m. Pinot’s Palette is located at 25850 McBean Pkwy in Valencia. For more information, visit www.pinotspalette.com/valencia.
Nothing could be sweeter than taking your honey honey tasting! If you’ve never been to Bennett’s Honey Farm in Fillmore, a romantic drive over the hill at this sweet time of year for some raw, gourmet honey sounds perfect. The honey tasting room and store are open seven days a week, Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bennett’s Honey Farm is located at 3176 Honey Lane (Hwy 126) in Fillmore. Call 805-521-1375 or visit www.bennetthoney.com
And, the day after:
Santa Colorita 5K
Families will gather at Castaic Lake Recreational Area on Saturday morning, February 15 for an active event for all ages – the Santa Colorita 5K Fun Run. It is an un-timed, five-kilometer “race” where runners are doused with “colors” at the end of each kilometer. It’s friendly dousing, as family members and other supporters will splash non-toxic, non-rash inducing colored corn starch on runners, proclaiming their completion of each leg of the race.
At the finish line is a “Color Festival,” where brilliantly colored powder will be released onto the runners, and visitors will enjoy live music, food, games and more. For more details, call (661) 702-6977.
