Arbor Annie’s Valentine’s Day Weekend Roundup – February 14-16

Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you are celebrating on Friday or postponing until the weekend, I hope everyone enjoys the day. It is also President’s Day weekend, but without a three day weekend it doesn’t standout as much.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - February 14-16

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

First, yes it is President’s Day weekend. However, with Ann Arbor Public Schools in session on Monday, it’s not quite a 3 day weekend for many families.

Start the weekend off with a Valentine Dining Experience. From themed foods to discounts, check out our suggestions for Valentine’s Dinner Plans.
