🌵 Get fantastical with botanicals

If you’re quick, you might have your pick of bouquets using same-day flower delivery. (We’re eyeing those locally designed arrangements.)

Or, get creative and nab a potted plant from these plant spots. Nothing says forever like a hardy succulent.

Take a look at this roundup of where to buy indoor plants.

      🥂 Keep spirits up

      If you didn’t score reservations, don’t overthink… grab a drink. These spots have weekday happy hours:

      • Coral | S. Main Street | Tue.-Sat. | 4-6 p.m. | $7 select specialty cocktails, $6 house wine, $5 house liquor, $4 draft Stella beer
      • Wine House | Haywood Road | Tues.-Fri. | 4-7 p.m. | $2 off wines by the glass

      For more options, check out our happy hour guide.

      🌟 Go stargazing and sunset spotting

      It doesn’t get much more idyllic than bundling up and looking at the stars. Grab some blankets (and maybe a hot drink) and head to one of these spots away from man-made light to take in the sky.
