Saint Valentine is, among other things, the Patron Saint of engaged couples, happy marriages, love and lovers. A completely accurate history of Saint Valentine is not known but one story holds that he lived during the 3rd century when it was illegal to be a Christian under the rule of Claudius II. Since he would not renounce his faith after having been found performing marriages of Christian couples and helping other Christians that were being persecuted, he was jailed, tortured and beheaded, thus earning him a role throughout eternity assisting lovers as their Patron Saint.
What better way to celebrate the feast of St. Valentine’s Day than with your loved one while enjoying wine and chocolate. On Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15, we will have wine and chocolate pairings for $15 per couple. The chocolates are hand-made at Dude, Sweet Chocolate in Dallas, Texas and the wine, of course, is made right here at Arché. The pairings will be available from noon – 5:00. Reservations are not necessary.
