This year we’re encouraging you to celebrate however suits you best – whether that’s by treating someone else…or yourself! Lots of businesses in Mt Airy are ready to help you take the holiday in whatever direction you prefer. Some of them have even prepared great specials or events just for the occasion. Read on for gift ideas and more from members of the Go Mt Airy Business Association.

A BEETING HEART
Zsa’s Beeting Heart Pink Velvet Ice Cream is back as sandwiches and scoops to share with your sweetie (or your own sweet self!).
Beeting Heart Pink Velvet is Cream Cheese Ice Cream, vibrantly hued using velvety beet powder, that brings bold color and just the slightest hint of earthiness. It pairs wonderfully with a scoop of Cookies & Cream; or, as a sandwich between chewy, brownie-like, Midnight Cocoa Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
And seeing that the weekend before Valentine’s Day is also Super Bowl Weekend, Zsa’s will have a special Super Bowl Sundae and a new ice cream pie for cheering on either your favorite team or folks that you love!
Make sure to stop by the weekend before Valentine’s for all these goodies since Zsa’s will be closed Monday and Tuesday.

The Frosted Fox Cake Shop always does it up right for Valentine’s Day! Available for pre-order or walk-in purchase, they’ll have a stock of fun cookies including the Schitt’s Creek sweaters pictured here as well as mini “sweetheart” cakes for 2. This year they will be open as usual on Valentine’s Day (Tuesday the 14th) but ALSO on Monday the 13th, 1-5, to help folks who want to get a little bit ahead on their planning. As you probably know, most bakeries close Mondays so this is a little extra love from them to you.
