MSLK’s Things to Love 2010
MSLK has once again composed a list of affordable and eco-friendly ways to spend your Valentine’s Day. From tasty treats to secret art shows, it doesn’t matter who you spend it with, as long as you’re feeling the love.
Super Sunday Special at Northern Spy Food Co
Northern Spy Food Co. was just opened this fall by an old friend of MSLK. This restaurant features heart-warming home cooking using organic ingredients and hearty vegetables. Perfect for wintertime and the reasonable prices won’t break the bank on a first date. We suggest Sundays for the $20 Sunday supper special.
Take Care of Yourself
A great value, Spa H offers top quality spa services using all natural treatments. The best part: a service also entitles you to access their steam room, sauna and full gym. Take a yoga class, have a massage, and steam for as little as $65. Locations in both NYC and NJ.
Spread Your Love the MSLK Way
An old favorite of ours, designed by the cupids here at MSLK, this interactive V-day card has brought endless smiles to our very own fans.
Champagne, Chocolate and Eco-Friendly Shopping, Oh My!
Feel great about your Valentine’s pampering by buying eco-friendly gifts made locally at Teich Designs. Stylish handbags made from deer leather and dyed without tannins, clothing made from organic cotton, and jewelry made from recycled materials awaits. Shop tonight from 5-8 pm to be pampered even more with champagne and chocolate!
Follow Your Loves on Twitter
Twitter goes beyond following your close friends and celebrity crushes. Don’t forget to follow brands you love and get in on any inside scoop about any Valentine’s promotions. While you’re at it, make sure you check out Sheri’s expertise on social media and how to make the most of it!
Love to Hate Valentine’s Day
If you’re just getting over a bad break-up, fear not, you are not alone. Comfort your broken heart with bitter comedians sharing their own dating disaster stories on “Sunday, Bloody Sunday” at The Creek.
Reuse Vintage Valentines
Have a tight budget but still think your date deserves something more unique than a Hallmark Card? Find a Vintage E-Valentine from the collection of West Virginia University Libraries to send to thy love.
See Frick For Free
The Frick Collection has “pay as you wish” on Sundays so whether you choose to impress your date with a big contribution or save your cash for dinner later is up to you. Whatever you decide to do, this will be a great Valentine’s daytime activity for old-master painting lovers.
Give Your Love to Haiti
Simple, fun and eco-friendly online card store Paper Culture is donating all their Valentine’s Day card proceeds to the victims in Haiti. Who said Valentine’s Day is just about pampering your lovers? Go out and perform acts of love for those in need.
Fashion-Conscience has a wide assortment of eco, organic, natural and vegan beauty brands. It’s the perfect place to find an eco-friendly gift for your loved ones and to top it off all Valentine’s Day gifts are free shipping.
We Heart Secret Events
If you like surprises, check in on newmindspace’s website Sunday morning when they release the location of a secret Valentine’s Day themed art-installation somewhere in NYC. The only information that’s been released is the name of the exhibition: We Heart NY.
Have a Love A-Fair
For handmade crafts and food, head over to Williamsburg for the two-day Love A-Fair. With over 20 vendors, live music and free popcorn & balloons for the kiddies, it’s sure to be a lovely day for the whole family.
Share Drinks with Your Angel
The East Village hidden treasure Angel’s Share is the perfect way to impress your object d’amour by showing them you’re classy. This Japanese bar is one flight up, and very selective about how many people to let in at any given time — keeping the riff raff away.
Pig Out on Bacon Chocolate
Be still my beating heart… for good! Truffles are so passé, anyway. Applewood smoked bacon pieces with alderwood smoked salt, and 45% creamy milk, or 62% deep dark chocolate.
For the Daring
The Museum of Sex explores how the condom object revolutionized contraception, protection, and everything in-between. With graphics designed by Michael Bierut, there’s really no reason not to go. (Not necessarily recommended for first dates…)
