I have always been a sucker for a romantic meal, any day of the year. With Valentine’s Day peeking around the corner, restaurants are doing what they do best and adjusting to suit the circumstances. Romance doesn’t have to die, and neither does your beloved when you attempt a medium rare Shake ‘N Bake chicken breast.

We will be maintaining a story highlight on our Instagram @TheReaderOmahaDish of Valentine’s specials to tempt your taste buds.

And for dessert, leave it to Outlook Enrichment to help you make an unforgettable memory, and a difference.

Dessert in the Dark

A cake, whether consumed by candlelight or with a blindfold on, will taste as sweet….

It’s twice as sweet and half as suspish as it sounds. Outlook Enrichment is an organization that creates opportunities for Nebraska’s vision-impaired, and education for anyone interested in learning. This lesson is taught kinesthetically, and completely without your eyes.

Pick up your mystery dessert box from The Omaha Bakery on February 11 and prepare for an enlightening night in the dark. Don your eye masks (included in kit) and open your mystery dessert. Use your hands, ears, and senses of taste and smell to enjoy the sweets with your sweet. The kit also includes discussion cards, should you need them, a bib, because who are we kidding? And handy wet wipes. Order yours Here
