Lorton Getaway

Valentine's Day is over, but that doesn't mean the romance has to stop. Head to Lorton this weekend for a memorable getaway for two, starting with Date Night: Chef's Table, an evening of romance, cooking and fun held at the Workhouse Arts Center. You'll work side by side with your date as our instructor teaches the easy, yet impressive techniques behind a menu of dishes designed to inspire the warm fuzzies every time. Move up a notch on the love scale by including dancing with your dinner. Come early and take a 30-minute ballroom dancing lesson for only $5, and head back upstairs after class and dance until 10:30 p.m. Afterward, stay at the Stafford House Bed and Breakfast in nearby Fairfax and relax next to the crackling fireplace or in the Jacuzzi or sauna.
