Dave and I figured we would go to dinner on our Valentine's Day/Anniversary. We called the new hot spot to "dine" and discovered they wanted $95 per person for their four course Valentine menu. At that price it better come with diamonds!
I got an email from a gal that had put together a poetry reading that featured poems and poets from our area. We were excited and yet curious to attend our first poetry reading. We had some company that day that had stayed longer than anticipated, so we never made it. This gal emailed me an invitation Saturday to a Valentine poetry reading at an historical hotel.
The event is called: "Between the Sheets," a romantic poetry and prose reading at the Leger Hotel in Mokelumne Hill on Sunday, Feb. 11, from 2:00 to 5:00 P.M., where poets, authors, and public readers will entertain guests and all special someone's. Included will be featured poets and writers involved with Manzanita and Writers Unlimited, and friends, as well as the Mokelumne poets, who have prepared some romantic poetry and prose for a delicious, sizzling afternoon. Generous open mic time will be provided for the public to read and share favorite love poems, love notes, and nuptial poems--original fare or those by favorite authors. The group will have poetry selections available for public sharing in case you forget your favorites. Come to listen and/or to read. Humorous, sexy, rollicking, serious, heartfelt, sensual poetry and prose will be on the wordsmith menu. David Sackman will accompany writers on stand-up bass for sultry rhythms.
Optional: $15.00-25.00 range for a special Valentine dinner menu from 5:00 on, following the event, prepared by the talented Leger Hotel chef.
Bonus highlights: creative and fun sensations available from a chocolate confectioner, winery samplings, romantic products from other entities, and an afternoon love fest of words. There will be author book signings and chat time during the half-hour break with refreshments available.

I showed Dave the email and he thought it sounded good! This coming from a man who refuses to go into a Victoria Secret shop. I'm praying his love of poetry about nature will keep him from squirming. It could really backfire and he'll like it so much we might miss the gourmet dinner ;0 We have reservations so I'm thinking this will be the most unique anniversary yet!
