Woo fruitarians, cacao cravers, and bus crushes with today's Groupon, offering 12 ripe strawberries hand dunked in gourmet chocolate from Acute Events & Catering for $40 ($70 value). The delicious, utensils-not-required delights are a sophisticated and surefire way to satiate and seduce just in time for Valentine's Day and Abraham Lincoln's birthday.
Acute Events & Catering is a high-end catering service helmed by Doreen Kaplan. Her Valentine's Day Special houses four hand-dipped white chocolate, four milk chocolate, and four dark chocolate treats in a glossy red-ribbon–topped white box. Featuring world-renowned Belgian Callebaut chocolate, the treats are an inventive alternative to stale drugstore sweets and chalky message hearts that say all the wrong things.
In order to have your sweets ready for Valentine's Day, you need to place your order by February 10, with pick-up on February 12 and 13. After the 14th, be sure to call two days in advance. Acute's prime River Oaks location makes pick-up easy. Spoil your sweetheart, surprise your best friend, or just eat them all in bed yourself while watching your children perform scenes from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
