Elvira’s Cakes on Independence Avenue and Myrtle Avenue has special heart-shaped cakes, and other Valentine’s Day treats available, as well as Valentine’s cards available for only one dollar! Their chocolate-covered strawberries are soon to be a staple gift for your loved one, even if that loved one is yourself.

The following weekend, on Saturday, February 16, the City Market will also host a Valentine’s Day “Love is the Name of the Game,” game board party. Single people and couples are all welcome to join, as Level One Game Shop sets up multiple tables with a board game for everyone.
