Special dinner for casanovas

COUPLES across the Lockyer Valley enjoyed a night out in Gatton this week with a Valentine's Day dinner at Emily's II on Woodlands.

Gatton couple, Melissa and Peter Hogbin, celebrated their seventh Valentine's Day together at Emily's II on Woodlands on Monday night.

“It's our second one as a married couple,” Mr Hogbin said.

“It's good to celebrate times you have had and the time's you will have together on day like Valentine's Day.”

Emily's II on Woodlands Manager, Sheryl Priest, said it was very successful.

“We very pleased with number of people that came,” she said.

“We were absolutely flat out.”

She said around 60 people attended the night and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“Most people booked but we did have some walk-ins and we were able to seat them,” she said.

“We also had great entertainment for the night.

“There are a group of friends and golfers that come here that had a band a long time ago and they helped out with the music.”

She said the night was so successful they plan to have more of them in the future.

“We are thinking maybe we can have a Halloween night and a dinner night for Mother's Day and Father's Day.”
