Inspired by the founder (and Denver dessert king) Paul Tamburello’s mother, this spot is an ode to classic and scratch-made treats and will include a sundae bar, handmade truffles and chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentine’s Day. 

No reservations required. 


Plan a Staycation: The Crawford Hotel 

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday this year, it provides the perfect excuse to extend the holiday into the weekend. Stay downtown at The Crawford Hotel, located in Union Station, where they’re offering a special rate of $289 a night for a two-night stay with complimentary champagne included.
