If your valentine has a sweet tooth, there’s no better place to go for delightful baked treats than The Cup. Surprise your loved one with an XOXO Valentine’s Pack, or just a dozen cupcakes of your choice. We recommend the “Ruby,” a strawberry and red velvet cupcake topped with raspberry cream cheese frosting and a red candy heart (pictured). Order yours at cravethecup.com.
If your sweetheart is into craft beer, why not bring home a growler of the Civil Life Brewing Company’s Rye Pale Ale, or our favorite, the American Brown. This hidden gem of a micro brewery is located at 3714 Holt Avenue, in the historic Tower Grove neighborhood. Check out what’s on tap at the brewery’s website.
