We all know that Valentine’s wouldn’t be complete without food – whether it’s breakfast in bed, a warm brunch, or a romantic, candle-lit dinner. But before (or after) the meal, what’s there left to do? Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be cliché, and these five date ideas are sure to make your Feburary 14th anything but boring.
1. Emporium Arcade Bar // This bar has a wealth of 90’s arcade games that will turn your date into a total flashback. No one ever said Mortal Kombat wasn’t romantic.
3. Arts & Spirits // Even if you are only the sansei of stick-figures, painting classes (that are BYOB) put a colorful spin on “after dinner” drinks.
4. The Boring Store // This place is basically a spy’s WalMart and a chill community hang out spot. You can’t have Valentines without a little espionage.
5. American Science and Surplus // The scientist’s favorite place ever. If you or your date is into science, come here and get lost in your dream of building a robot dinoctopus.
