Let's face it, last year's attempt at breakfast in bed just didn't cut it. Not that your sweetie doesn't appreciate a well-toasted Pop Tart and Sunny-D, but we know you can do better. The Second Floor chefs Andrea Maricich and Scott Gottlich, alongside mixologist Seth Brammer, can make you look like you really do care with their Valentine's Day breakfast in bed cooking class. Taste your way as you learn to prepare red velvet crepes, eggs benedict, lobster avocado omelet and more. Brammer will show you how to hand-squeeze Mimosas, home-cook Bloody Marys and bloom tea. The cost is $45 per person.
