Valentine's Day with Blo Blow Dry Bar

Christopher Leno and his husband John Hernandez are the owners of Blo Blow Dry Bar, the original blow dry franchise. Blo offers more than just hair styling and provides other services such as makeup, bridal, and on the go hair and makeup services. In his free time, Christopher enjoys exploring Denver and Boulder on foot and spending time with his family. 

My perfect Valentine’s Day downtown starts with a cup of coffee from the Capital One Cafe. After that I would head to Weekends to find the perfect outfit. Then, I would stop by Lush for a bath bomb for the evening relaxation. My favorite is the Butterball. 

For lunch I would recommend Rosetta Hall, a fast-casual food hall with many different options.  With such a large variety, there is something for everyone. For a sweet finish to lunch, I’d share a caramel apple from Kilwins with my valentine. 

Before the evening date, getting pampered is a must. Ladies - Get your blow out and makeup done at Blo. Guys - Get a clean shave and hair cut at Rollins Barber Shop.  

For drinks we would head to Upstairs Cocktail Lounge. They switch up their menu often, and there are always tasty new drinks to try. For dinner we would head to Corrida. The Patatas con Chorizo is always a delicious choice. 

We would finish the night with a show at the Boulder Theater, and stay the night at the historic Hotel Boulderado. The next morning would include IV fluids from Premier Health and breakfast bowls at Whole Sol
