Whether it’s taking care of the kids, the pets, the house, your parents or helping your company stay profitable, you do things for others every day. Every now and then though, it’s important to take care of yourself. At Mosquito Joe of Mason, we know even a simple afternoon of fun with your spouse, partner or best friend can help re-charge and re-energize your spirits. So if you’re looking for something a little more exciting than dinner and a movie this Valentine’s Day or to spice up a random weeknight, here are three great local activities to enjoy.
Learn To Make Delicious Macarons
Macarons are sweet, meringue-based cookies made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond meal, and food coloring. These delicious little delicacies come in many flavors, including coffee, toasted coconut, dark chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, birthday cake, lemon lavender, red velvet, salted caramel, and others. Even if you can barely boil water, the Intro to Macarons class offered by Macaron Bar is tons of fun. During this three-hour class, you’ll learn the art and science of how to make macaron shells and the delicious filling flavors. Best of all? You get to keep everything you make. Macaron Bar also offers classes to take with your children! Classes take place in the kitchen at Macaron Bar in the Main Street District in Over-the-Rhine.
Date Night Dinner
Going out for a gourmet meal is a great treat, but wouldn’t it be easier if you knew how to make one at home so you could enjoy it more often? Look no further than a cooking class at Sur La Table in Rookwood Commons. During multiple dates in February, Date Night: Cooking With Wine teaches you how to make an amazing four-course meal while you sip delicious wines during a fun, hands-on class. The menu includes Seared Scallops with Prosecco Butter Sauce, Chardonnay and Pecorino Risotto, Classic Haricots Verts with White Wine and Shallots, and for dessert, Chocolate Cake with Port and Vanilla Bean Crème Anglaise. Professional chefs will teach you the techniques to make this dish successfully at home, and you’ll enjoy a generous taste of every dish.
Paint With A Purpose
Monday, February 24, enjoy a relaxing evening painting a beautiful piece of art to hang at home. The instructors at Painting With A Twist in Mason will provide all the materials and teach you how to make this piece during a 2-hour class while you enjoy a beer or glass of wine you bring from home. Doors open 30 minutes early for happy hour so you and your guest can relax and settle in before class starts. Best of all? The class benefits Myles Ahead Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in Maineville, a no-kill shelter dedicated to finding permanent homes for all homeless pets.
