3 fun things: Feb. 10-12


WOODSTOCK

Valentine Story Time

Celebrate Valentine’s Day a little ahead of schedule at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock. The independent bookstore welcomes kids of all ages for a fun morning of decorating their own Valentine’s cards and enjoying a few special Valentine’s-inspired cookies. Storyteller Miss Beth will read aloud from “Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day Is Cool,” “Aw, Nuts!” and an “Elephant and Piggie” selection in the magical children’s room, featuring the shop’s one-of-a-kind flying blue bicycle. After story time, the kids can join in a singalong and leave with their creations and a few special stickers.

11 a.m. Feb. 11. Free. FoxTale Book Shoppe, 105 E. Main St., Woodstock. 770-516-9989, foxtalebookshoppe.com.

MARIETTA

Valentine’s Dinner

They say the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but let’s be real: Everyone loves good food. So what better way to fill your valentine’s heart with love than with a romantic dinner — a few days before the official Feb. 14 date? Make plans to share a five-course Italian feast at Piastra on the Marietta Square, where the menu highlights will include soup, cheese, salad, dessert and flank steak rolled in crab mousse over risotto — each designed to make your special someone swoon. For an additional $30 per person, add a wine pairing to each course. Reservations are suggested, but not required.

5-10 p.m. Feb. 10 and 11; 5-9 p.m. Feb. 12. $50 per person. Piastra Restaurant, 45 W. Park Square, Marietta. 770-425-9300, piastrarestaurant.com.
