Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and with that, thoughts of love and adoration float through the air. For our single friends, though, the very mention of the day can elicit groans and eye rolling.
Here at Blue Iguana, we celebrate El Dia del Amor y la Amistad, held the same day as Valentine’s and in fact a variation of the V-day first started in Roman Catholic times. But Dia del Amor is more than the ooey gooey romantic kind of love and that’s why we love it so much (no pun intended).
Dia del Amor is a day to celebrate love and friendship. Chocolate roses and candy hearts are still appreciated, but gatherings of loved ones romantic and otherwise are also part of the fun.
A long weekend too!
Bonus: because it’s President’s Day on Monday, it’s an extra long weekend notorious for powder play here in Utah. So gather your loved ones: romantic, ski lovers, good friends, whatever loves you’ve got, and celebrate your own way at Blue Iguana over Valentine’s Weekend.
What to expect
We’ll be serving up our famous Old World Mexican favorites and some specials for this very love filled weekend:
Enchiladas with Strawberry Mole
Pair with one of our Best Margaritas in Utah like the Strawberry Margarita or go for a Strawberry Mojito with just enough mint to feel refreshed after earning your turns up on the slopes.
Please be advised this is a busy weekend in downtown (being headquarters for the Western Hunting Expo as well) and Park City, Dia del Amor celebration and specials will last all weekend including President’s Day Monday – plenty of options!
