Valentine’s Day in a Cave
Eating the Ozarks (a local company that offers foraging classes, wild-infused meals and special dinner events) planned a super-fun destination dinner for Valentine’s Day: 1920s Prohibition Dinner at Crystal Cave. It’s a 1920s theme from the suggested dress to the speakeasy vibe (including a password to get in and “bootleggers” offering you all the fixings for a hand-made cocktail). Even the menu has a distinctly vintage vibe: hot lobster dip, Waldorf salad, oysters Rockefeller and more. That’s the fun news. The bad news is: It sold out super-fast.
Wait… wait… the emotional rollercoaster of this event is headed back in a good direction. Due to the response to this fun cave dinner, Eating the Ozarks decided to schedule a Roaring Twenties Speakeasy Picnic Lunch for Two. Similar concept, but during the day. You start with a cave tour, then you get to enjoy lunch inside the cave on your choice of a picnic blanket tucked away in a private nook, or a table if dining on the ground isn’t your thing. Picnic baskets include 1920s-themed hand pies, charcuterie board, hot lobster and wild mushroom chowder and more. Oh and there’s live music too. Tickets are $125 per couple, and you probably want to snag them now before they sell out like the dinner tickets did.
