Love for All Types 

Valentine's options for the climber, the chef and the person who loves lectures.

There are many ways to say "I love you." Sure, you can give chocolates and flowers, but you can also solve mysteries with your special friend, take a cruise, give the gift of laughter. You might even learn a thing or two. Here are some options:

Peak Experiences Indoor Rock Climbing Center has a pre-Valentine's Day party on Feb. 10, 6-10 p.m., featuring two-for-one classes and live music by the Rachel Leyco Band. Climb with the one you love. 897-6800.

Maggiano's chef Paolo Pineda hosts a Men's Only Valentine's Day Cooking Class at Short Pump Town Center, Feb. 12 at 11 a.m. Learn the arts of sweets and wine and then get in that kitchen. And it's free! 253-0900.
