Lost for ideas for Valentines Day? Look no more! The circus is in town (Austin, Texas), the Secret Circus that is.

The night begins at The Mansion at 2312 San Gabriel (Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs) and where you will be greeted with a glass of bubbly before you partake in a sumptuous four-course meal with cocktail pairings by Hosteria Verde Supper Club.

Taking advantage of seasonal produce, the dining experience will begin with butternut squash soup with brown butter, sage and nutmeg, followed by a crisp frisee and mixed greens salad topped with spiced walnuts, pears, blue cheese and drizzled with Port Wine vinaigrette.

Guests will have a choice of main course between roasted beef tenderloin, seared halibut or a vegetarian option before enjoying a decadent chocolate terrine with toasted pistachios and crème Anglaise.

Romantic delights throughout dinner include:

A musical performances by Chrysta Bell and David Garza, and Esther Levonne

Fashion from Boudoir Queen
Aerial acrobatics by Ricochet
