Valentines Day Picks for Fernie
February is a great month, days are getting longer, the powder keeps coming and cupid is out and about.
Fernie’s Best Wine Deal
Bear Flag - Dark Red Blend
Nice sipper, would be great with a chocolate fondue. Hello Valentine’s idea! Cashmere soft but juicy purple goodness with vanilla and cherry notes make this my new favorite affordable blend! www.bearflagwine.com $13.99
Need a little something something? Your best conversation starter would be Patron ox Cafe liqueur. Taking premium silver Patron tequila and the richness of coffee, this is not a sweet liqueur, it is dry with chocolate and vanilla notes. Make this your Valentine’s treat! patrontequila.com$49.99

Scored Mostly A’s: The Snow Bee
You are here for good time, not a long time. You have serious swagger. Relationships sound like a lot of work #awwhellno! Fernie is fun and who knows what the next rave will bring in. Your best bet is to avoid Snow Dogs and Snow Cats, stick to the Bees and Snowflakes. Be upfront with your non-committal ways.
Scored Mostly B’s: The Wandering Snowflake
You wear your heart on your sleeve, the “fairies” bring you love. You are not sure what you love more, your hoola hoop or your yoga mat. You are looking for the craziest most passionate love that ever happened. Your best bet is to charm a Snow Dog to follow you anywhere until you are So. Totally. Over it! It is also best advised to not sleep with co-workers or bosses. Bees will only bring you #dramz.
Scored Mostly C’s: The Snow Dog
You work long days, you enjoy the company of good friends and frankly, the bar scene just stresses you out. You want to hit up Yamagoya mid week with that someone special. #Copiousammontsofredwine. Your friends are all paired off, single life has gone stale and you ain’t getting any younger. You are open to anything and anyone. Your best bet is to stay away from Wandering Snowflakes and look for a fellow Snow Dog, you should also open your mind to Snow Cats. Best advice, don’t read too deep into texts.
Scored Mostly D’s: The Snow Cat
You’ve attended 30 weddings in the past three years. Your tank of fake enthusiasm for all your knocked up friends is on empty. You have dated more people than the capacity of the Community Centre, and you still haven’t been able to find someone as awesome as yourself. #ontheprowl Your best bet is to avoid the cougar tendencies and run from Bees and Snowflakes. Open your mind to all the cool Cats in Fernie. Even the right dog can sniff you out – if you let them!
