Love is in the air, which can only mean one thing… Valentine’s Day is just about here. If this is your first time thinking about what to do for the holiday, or you’ve had no luck in coming up with Valentine’s Day plans, we’ve got some ideas that will work… even this late in the game.
A Classic Dinner for Two
Is Reunion Tower booked? What about Nick & Sam’s? Well, odds are they might be full, but the best place to find last-minute reservations is opentable.com. Check these favorites and many more with a click of a button. It will save you on time, and in most cases, you can claim your table straight from their website or app.
Take a Visit to the Art Museum
The weather might be chilly and rainy this week, so skip the picnic lunch and enjoy an afternoon at one of DFW’s many art museums. The Dallas Museum of Art, Kimbell Art Museum and the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art are a few of our favorites. It’s not an art museum, but the Perot Museum of Nature & Science is also a great choice as well.
Plan an Unconventional Night Out
A Valentine’s Day dinner doesn’t have to be over the top. Skip the reservations and plan a taco tour or finish off your home cooked meal with some delicious desserts. LUCK at Trinity Groves even has a Valentine’s Doughnut & Beer Pairing, so be adventurous and break from tradition.
Some of DFW’s amazing taco places include, Taco Diner, Torchy’s Tacos, Fuel City Tacos, Urban Taco and Velvet Taco, and some highly recommended dessert options are Savor Macarons, Emporium Pies, Cake Bar, Steel City Pops, Milk • Cream, Godiva Chocolates, Sprinkles and Popbar. Enjoy the journey and fun of exploring something new, and the best part is that this could work for singles, couples or a group of friends.
Single? We Have an Event for You Too
Bowl and Barrel in Dallas has a “Shred Your Ex” event on Valentine’s Day; bring a picture of your ex to rip up and it could mean free hors d’oeuvres for you! It’s all in good fun, and who knows, you might meet another single at the event.
Just because you are a little behind in the planning or you’ve been putting off doing something because you are single, doesn’t mean it’s too late to have amazing Valentine’s Day Plans!
