Make Memories With Those You Love in Bryant Park

Based on the number of proposals that take place year round in Bryant Park it's safe to say that it's a pretty romantic place, no matter what the temperature is. Below are a few suggestions for all the love birds out there, or families, or best friends or whoever you are spending this Saturday with. While  you are out on the ice or in the park look out for the Bank of America brand ambassadors handing out conversation hearts.

The Bank of America Winter Village's prime attraction is The Rink, and what a great attraction it is. The admission to The Rink is free so for lovers on a budget this could be the ideal way to glide into each other's hearts. Skating is also a wonderful activity for families and friends alike. There are no shortages of laughs and opportunities to get closer to those who mean most to you, especially on this special day.

If you want to enhance your skating experience with a dinner or lunch date afterward the park offers a few options for any budget or atmospheric desire. If you are interested in a more casual experience perhaps some delicious Turkish treats from Mmm...Enfes will do the trick with a little something sweet from Chimney Cakes for dessert.

Perhaps eating outside is not your thing and you would like be seated and served. Celsius, with views of The Rink, is offering a Prix Fixe menu for $80 a person and is taking reservations for parties of two and four. The menu features baked oysters, Mahi-Mahi, chocolate cake and specialty cocktails.

For a more refined celebration of Valentine's Day The Bryant Park Grill still has a few reservations available (they will also seat walk-ins in the garden tent). The menu will remain the same, but feature a few additional items such as lobster pot pie, lamb sliders, shrimp & wonton soup, and chocolate fondue for two to name a few.

For those of you with children looking for a kid friendly event look no further than Mardis Gras at Le Carrousel. Come for the masks, beads, and chocolate coins, stay for the magic performed by Magician R.J. Lewis and music by Jambalaya Brass Band.

No matter who you love, Bryant Park is the perfect place to observe Valentine's Day.
