If you screw Valentine’s Day and are only waiting for the discounted chocolate on February 15th, or if your Valentine runs on batteries and you are usually having a threesome for Valentine’s Day: you, Ben & Jerry…then we have the right party for you! Take the pressure off of Valentine’s Day and swing by Zarah on Monday, February 14th because we are BOYCOTTING the way Valentine’s Day represents fairytale romance and its celebration as a couples’ parade to exchange mass-produced feelings. Therefore, instead of a mushy-gushy Valentine’s Dinner, we are throwing a “Saint Valentine Remembrance Party” in order to cheers to the martyr of the 3rd century. Unfortunately, not many people know that Valentine’s Day traces its origin to Saint Valentine who was a priest during the Roman Empire who secretly performed weddings for soldiers & Christians who were forbidden to marry under the Roman Empire. Upon being caught, he was imprisoned, tortured, and martyred in Rome on February 14th, 269. In honor of Saint Valentine, we will put on a whole night Happy Hour offering all open wines and Prosecco at RMB 40 per glass. Moreover, from 7pm – 10pm the following delicious 3-course-set dinner menu will be available with an interesting local twist at RMB 248 for singles and RMB 496 for couples, including a glass of sparkling wine per person.
