Imagine this: Valentine’s Day – you and your date in a sleek, chauffeur-driven Volvo whisking your way into historic Eastport for a dinner for two prepared by an award-winning chef at a hot, urban chic restaurant. The cost? It’s all free.

This vision can be your reality.

Blackwall Hitch and Annapolis Volvo will provide one lucky couple a Valentine’s evening to remember. One couple with a Valentine’s reservation at Blackwall Hitch will be selected to receive the use of a driver and Volvo, courtesy of Annapolis Volvo, and a 4-course dinner from Blackwall Hitch by award-winning Chef Zachary Pope.

“The Valentine’s menu I’ve created plays off the romance of the day,” said Chef Pope. “It’s all about taste, texture and pairings. I love the idea of my food contributing to a romantic evening for our guests. And, it’s great to know that after their relaxing dinner, the winning couple will have a luxurious ride home from Annapolis Volvo.”

“Our team wanted to create a memorable night for a local couple,” said Mike Mayfield, Annapolis Volvo General Sales Manager. “For a Valentine’s evening excursion in the award-winning Volvo XC90, the Blackwall Hitch was the obvious destination. The winners will arrive in style for a gourmet dinner and drinks.”

Here’s how it works:

Any couple (table for two) making a reservation for Valentine’s dinner at Blackwall Hitch from Friday-Sunday, February 12-14, is eligible to win.

The reservation must be placed before close of business on Friday, February 5. Reservations made after that date are not eligible for the prize package. 

One winning couple will be selected at random and notified Monday, Feb. 8.

A driver from Annapolis Volvo in a 2016 Volvo XC90, Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year, will pick up the winning couple at their home in time for their dinner reservation at Blackwall Hitch.

On arrival, the couple will be seated and enjoy a 4-course complimentary dinner from Blackwall Hitch by award-winning Chef Zachary Pope (menu below).  

After dinner and drinks, the happy couple will be driven home in the Volvo XC90. 

To enter:

  • Call Blackwall Hitch at 410.263.3454 or stop by (400 Sixth Street, Annapolis) to make your reservation
  • Stop by Annapolis Volvo (333 Busch’s Frontage Road, Annapolis) for a test drive and representatives in the showroom will help you make online or phone in reservations. (

For more information, contact Blackwall Hitch at 410.263.3454 or Annapolis Volvo at 888.876.1047.

 A Valentine Evening to Remember Contest…the fine print: The driver will pick up and drop off from one location. No multiple pickup sites unless agreed to prior with Annapolis Volvo.

The driver will take the couple to and from Blackwall Hitch in Annapolis. There are no other stopping points. If the couple does not want to return home with the driver at the designated time, the couple is responsible for their own transportation.
