Love is in the air! Can you feel it? Yes, it may be difficult to focus because of all this cold and snow, but love is in the air, and for those of you looking to plan for that perfect romantic evening with your special someone, Lavender has you covered!

For our 2020 Romance issue, our friend Joy Summers returns with a round-up of six local restaurants perfect for a romantic dinner. We follow up with a look at three excellent hotels and resorts that make for a perfect getaway without leaving Minnesota, and to top it off, we’ll tease your sweet tooth with three Minnesota chocolatiers that’ll make your Valentine’s gift the best one yet.

On top of that, Bradley Traynor returns with an Eat The Menu highlighting his visit to Tinto Kitchen; Carla Waldemar revisits some more of her magical trip to Spain; and Holly Peterson profiles the supreme succulents of Fractal Cactus in Minneapolis.

Dinner? Check. Luxurious getaways? Check. Chocolate? Oh, that’s a big check. A romantic night to remember? You know it, lovebirds!

Speaking of which, submissions are now open for Lavender‘s 2020 Spring Love & Marriage issue! If you’ve recently had a rainbow wedding in Minnesota, be sure to submit your wedding to be featured in our March 12 issue. Don’t delay!
