Not sure how to spend the heartfelt holiday? We’ve got you covered! Whether you’re single or taken, here are some festive activities around town to get you in the spirit!
Stop by the local Dunkin’ Donuts in Pearl to grad a seasonal mocha macchiato coffee, pink velvet macchiato, a cupid heart donut, or brownie batter heart donut.
If you need to get that special someone a gift that’s quick and sweet, stop by Fresh Market or La Brioche in Cultivation to grab chocolate covered strawberries.
Pile up in the car with your friends and head to either Lowe’s or Home Depot and pick some flowers out. You can head back to the house and make some fun bouquets or flower arrangements.
The weather may be frigid but having a picnic with friends is always fun; you can get Dairy Queen’s cupid cake for $9.99 to share and drive up the Overlook at the Reservoir because who says you don’t need a date to celebrate.
If you find yourself unsure of where to go for date night on, look no further than Jutamas Thai Restaurant. This spot is an underrated favorite, with amazing food and Valentine’s Day specials. If you’re not into Asian cuisine then Walker’s is another great restaurant to dine at.
If you’re spending Valentine’s Day single, then embrace it by inviting your friends over for a rom-com movie marathon. Our top picks are 13 Going on 30, To All the Boys I Loved Before trilogy, 10 Things I Hate About You, Sleepless in Seattle, and Crazy Rich Asians. If you’re in the mood for pizza then call Domino’s to order a heart shaped one to put you in the mood.
