Culture on the Cheap
Looking For A Little Romance On Valentine’s Day?
Looking for a place to take your honey (or hubby) this upcoming Valentine’s Day? I suppose you could luxuriate at our local bed and breakfast* but my buddy over at Brooklyn11211 found a better deal. He writes:
Somewhere, a publicist has earned his wings:
two of Brooklynâ€™s coolest hotels â€“ hotel le jolie and hotel le bleu[…] are offering the ideal Valentineâ€™s Day Packages for couples wishing to experience a romantic rendezvous in Brooklynâ€™s trendiest neighborhoods.
Amenities at Le Jolie from February 10-15 include (I shit you not):
- Accommodations for two nights
- Rose petals scattered throughout the room
- Chocolates upon arrival
- $50 American Express Gift Certificate (Based on a two-night minimum and one American Express Gift Certificate per stay)
- Complimentary continental breakfast
Since when was 4th Avenue in Park Slope? Since when has “bumping uglies” on 4th Avenue or whilest overlooking BQE (sans illicit substances) been considered romantic for that matter? Then again who I am to judge? The Mister and I spent our honeymoon in the Bronx.
P.S.: Big props go out to my friend Brooklyn11211 for posting this. It made my day.
*I have noticed a disturbing number of search queries on my blog’s “backend” for hotels in Greenpoint. For all intents and purposes there are none. Take thee loved ones and friends to Sunnyside. Do NOT send them HERE. This is not a hotel. The Greenpoint Hotel is a flophouse.
