"Rose are red. Violets are blue. I wuff you so much, your shoes I will chew." - Anonymous

Wanderings is full of sweet treats, music and special events for this Valentine’s weekend - and into next week - as the romantic day falls on a Tuesday this year. Fur the Love of Dogs grooming salon in Washington Borough is giving some freshly groomed pooches a Valentine’s Day closeup like the little cutie pictured above. Whatever species you choose to spend the weekend with, we hope you find something fun in this week's newsletter!

We would be remiss if we didn't mention the big game on Sunday, as we suspect Warren County is home to plenty of Eagles fans! We couldn't find too much in the way of Super Bowl events per se, but it's a safe bet that your favorite local restaurant/caterer will be offering specials to honor the occasion. 

Happy Super Bowl, Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Wanderings!
