Feel like skipping the traditional (and boring) overpriced dinner with your beau this Valentine’s Day? We’ve rounded up a few alternative ideas that can help shake up your usual date routine. Check out these experiences below!
Take a painting class at Pinot’s Palette
A fun bonding experience for couples (and with groups of friends) is taking painting classes together. Bring a bottle of wine if you’d like and enjoy a class to express your artistic side. Pinot’s Palette in Dallas offers a variety of classes for all levels, so no painting experience is needed. Take a look here at some of the romantic paint sessions they have coming up in February.
Attend a sports game or concert
Catch your favorite upcoming sports game or concert with your date, and grab discounted tickets from ScoreBig.com. The site guarantees savings of up to 60 percent. Customers pick their own price on seats and never have to pay any fees. It’s an easy website to use, and you’ll find out right away if your offer has been accepted!
Visit the museums
Big cities are never short of museums. Plan an afternoon to visit one or more exhibits that are in town. If you’re feeling artsy or want to get your geek on at a science museum, this date will surely be eventful and educational. In Dallas, I never get tired of visiting the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot. Another enjoyable place to stop by is the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison.
Check out the DMA’s latest exhibit, “Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga” and a special dinner.
A blooming Valentine’s Day at The Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum is always a romantic place to visit. What girl doesn’t like beautiful flowers in bloom?? Especially if the weather is nice outside, take a stroll through the gardens and see the amazing scenery. Bonus: Tickets are just $5 now through Feb. 27.
A happy home with Homejoy
Give your Valentine a gift (much like a break) of house cleaning with Homejoy (referral link). You can easily schedule an appointment online, and professional cleaning representatives will get all the dirty work done…letting you and your date enjoy some quality time together.
Need I say more? Don’t forget the popcorn or your favorite take-out meal!
Shopping at Mockingbird Station
Enjoy a sweet day with chocolate bites and champagne while you shop for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit at LAVO in Mockingbird Station. Shopper will receive 40% off select merchandise all day and will have the chance to enter a raffle contest to win a gift bag filled with goodies from LAVO.
