Sweet Things for that Sweet Thang: Six places to grab dessert in Gillette this Valentine's Day

(Gillette, Wyo.) Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day, or maybe President's Day this weekend, there are a few places around town where people like to get their sweet tooth fix. *Alla Lala Cupcakes and Sweet Things* has a special Valentine's Day menu available this weekend. They also provide homemade chocolate truffles and chocolate dipped strawberries just for the occasion. They're located downtown on 204 Gillette Avenue and are open until 4 pm on Saturday.

Through Saturday any Valentine's gift is 50% off. They'll create any sort of chocolate arrangement you'd like in a candy bouquet, or you can pick up one that's already made. They range in price from $5 to $25, depending on size. [image: 20160211_122123.jpg] *Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse* isn't just sushi and hibachi. They make a deep-fried Oreo that you can devour after your sashimi or bento box. It's not on the main menu, there is a separate dessert menu that features the Oreos, plus fried bananas and Cheesecake Xangos, which are like a deep fried cheesecake eggroll. All three are worth saving room for after your meal. Sapporo is on Boxelder, attached to the Ramada Inn.

They're featuring a dinner for two including a bottle of wine on Saturday and Sunday. And if it's ice cream you really want, the *Ice Cream Cafe* on Douglas Highway (in the same plaza as Aaron's) should help you out. Salted caramel is their most popular flavor, but for Valentine's Day they're featuring a cherry chip flavor, and a cinnamon flavor that has Red Hots*®* in it. Every ice cream flavor they have is homemade on site, and they have at least 24 varieties available every day. They'll be serving up fresh fresh waffle cones and their new heart-shaped, cherry coated "Meg-O" bars, created by Meg, daughter of owners Dee and Lee.

But the prime rib meal for 2 includes wine, and their Raspberries with Russian Cream dessert, which is definitely one of the sweetest treats on their menu.
