Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Style
Enjoying a special dinner with your favorite someone, is always the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. And, as usual, some of the spots in the Las Cruces area never cease to amaze! I have compiled a short list of local eateries, that are offering special menus or events for the lovers’ night. New Mexico certainly knows how to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style!
Spotted Dog Brewery
Spotted Dog has provided a ‘pre-valentine’ special menu that will be available 2/10 – 2/12. They have also released two new brews for this special occasion: A Red Ale and a Chocolate Vanilla Porter. The Red Ale is called the ‘Heartache’, in an American red style ale, “with medium body and nice citrus hop presence”. The Chocolate Vanilla Porter is more of a traditional porter base and has an “obvious flavor of vanilla and chocolate”.

Heart Throb – Lobster ravioli in a Creole cream sauce and grilled asparagus garnished with a petite lobster tail. Serve two
