Each week, we'll tell you about one great idea to give you a much deserved break, and make your life a little easier -- maybe a whole lot easier.
Escaping on a regular day is challenging enough, but when it's Valentine's Day, you've got a real challenge. Sitters are scarce, restaurants are crowded and coming up with a unique idea is a tall order. Until now. Acupuncture Connections and New Leaf Salon have partnered to bring you and your loved one a night of pampering just in time for Valentine's Day -- but better, because their event is one weekend early. On Friday, Feb. 4 from 6-9 p.m., head over to 290 West Main St. to indulge in mini-acupuncture treatments, chair massage, microcurrent facials, paraffin hand dips and refreshments. R.S.V.P. to email@example.com. Isn't a little free romance worth the price of a sitter?
