'What to do for Valentine's Day?' Seems to be the quintessential question surrounding this manufactured holiday. For me the answer was easy, due to the fact that I seem to be dating someone with a similar train of thought as myself....get out of town! 
Queue road trip to Palm Desert- We found the perfect eccentric rental for our weekend escape (equip with Scrabble, a Fred Estaire biography, a vintage stove surrounded by mint green counter tops and a lava read correctly). 
We turned the TV on a single time and swiftly cut it off when we unanimously decided a game of Scrabble to a 70's montage playlist was more appropriate for the occasion. Most of our time was spent aimlessly perusing the idiosyncratic nature of Palm Springs as well as indulging in the overabundance of thrift stores. 
My plan for Valentine's Day itself is to order a gluten free vegan pizza, which will surely be void of flavor and resemble cardboard, and catch up on Netflix releases. My advice however, is simply do whatever you enjoy doing most as a couple. No need to break the bank with over exerted efforts. Just do what you both do best!

'Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
And I'm bound to keep on riding
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider'- Allman Brothers Midnight Rider

Call it a perfect escape, Urban Cowboy Bed & Breakfast hidden away in Nashville, TN is the place to flee!
Nonetheless, when I discovered they had a room aptly named 'The Midnight Rider' after being thoroughly intrigued by their polished Instagram account which emotes wanderlust and all things bohemian, I knew I needed to check it out for myself.
Tucked away in the East end suburbs of Nashville, this Queen-Ann Southwest inspired mansion was one of the few homes not destroyed in the fires of 1916. Upon arrival, guests are served whiskey & water after crossing the vintage threshold and entering the foyer which also serves as a music room equip with a vintage upright piano, drum set, plethora of guitars and banjos and a tambourine for those musically inclined...or not.
Missing from the rooms, and appropriately so, are TV's and most technological accouterments making it a true B&B. However, the best feature in each room are the clawfoot tubs that could easily fit an army of sud-soakers well over 6 foot and located centrally in each room in which patrons can enjoy a Milk & Honey bath provided by the hoteliers....highly recommended!
The cedar Brooklyn style bar area located in the back of the mansion with a built in food truck will be opening this Fall where guests can enjoy live entertainment and confections from top chefs. All amenities provided make it difficult for one to leave and return to normalcy, but alas.
