Come'on guys, it is days before Valentine's day and you didn't get her anything yet? I bet someone is gonna be in trouble... While it may be difficult to get in and even make a reservation, I bet you could still give it a try. There is this restaurant, downtown, part of the Four Seasons Hotel, and in the Lumiere casino. This restaurant is Cielo Restaurant and Bar. This restaurant is located on the 8th floor, which means that with the Weather Channel forecasting that the low on Valentine's Day night will be about 28 degrees, this means that it is the perfect weather to snuggle up and be close to the one you love. It is an Italian themed restaurant and what they are doing on Valentine's night, is letting everyone go to the terrace and write your name on a red balloon to be released and fly over the St. Louis downtown skyline. There is Valentine's Day themed food on the menu and it does sound like a romantic idea for everyone.
Not only do you release balloons and have good food, but the hotel will donate $5 for each balloon released to Food Outreach. So, your fun romantic evening gets better as you technically, help out your community. Then, you get your picture taken and things start to move along. If that isn't enough to get your love melting and you out of the doghouse, the restaurant will also be serving complimentary hot chocolate and cider on the terrace. So now, what excuse could you possibly use to get out of this?
(Well, having children without a babysitter is one possibility and perhaps the only one I can think of. While it would be cool if the Four Season's Hotel or the Lumiere Casino had a day care, I doubt it would happen anytime ever.) To make reservations, please call the Cielo Restaurant and Bar at (314) 881-5800.
