Valentine’s! You forgot all about it! At this point, even your most powerful exertions won’t result in the kind of really romantic evening your mate is pining for, and s/he’ll probably resent you till Christmas. Unless you shell out $125 for one of these picnic packages benefiting the Riverwalk Trust. The idea: Roll up to Huizenga Park (32 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), that befountained strip of parkland between Andrews Avenue and the old Sun-Sentinel building and just across the river from Broward’s improbably attractive jail, and pick up one of a selection of a Tuscan wines and a whole mess of picnic-ready tapas. Chillax on the grass or at a table as the sun sets over the Riverfront, and make moony eyes at your lover to the strains of Euge Groove, the contemp-jazz hit maker known to give young lovers euge wood. You can get the VIP package for just $50 more, which comes with extra wine options, something called a “Cafe Table” on which to picnic, and 50 percent off a sunset cruise on the Spirit of Fort Lauderdale. Picnicking starts at 6 p.m. Visit loveinthepark.info.
