Lisa and I have decided to make this: http://events.mnhs.org/calendar/results.cfm?eventID=3548&bhcp=1 our valentines day date this year. It's romantic to us, anyways. It's not actually on Valentines, but that's ok. We will definatly be going fancy. Anyone else interested? If so, I suggest making a reservation sooner rather than later. For those of you whos interest is not piqued simply by a link, here's a basic description:

Enjoy a traditional cream tea with scones and sweets in the Carriage House and learn more tidbits about Victorian women, the "Cult of Domesticity," and their take on the birds and bees. Costumed staff will serve the tea and tarts, prepared by McHattie's Victorian Times, as participants enjoy musical entertainment from the Klondike Kates of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. The tour focuses on this era's "soiled doves," the dangers of hysteria and other unmentionable details.

Its at the Ramsey House, in St Paul. I'd love to storm the place with rufflebuts.

(actually, it looks like this "Victorian Nights" is a set of educational tours- we are definatly going to try to attend the one on victorian courtship and wedding ettiquite! its even cheaper. That ones in march.)
