Valentine’s Day is four days away and you still haven’t made any plans for you and your lady. It’s not that you haven’t tried to plan anything, you have, but you have so many thoughts going on in your head it makes it difficult to concentrate. Like what really happened during the Super Bowl, was it some voodoo spell that caused the lights to go out? Was it Beyoncé in her Tina Turner circa 1970 outfit, or the reunion of Destiny Child that generated so much electricity the lights had to go out just to recover from their hotness? What’s it like to be Jay Z, does he sit in the living room and thank God he’s married to Beyoncé. How much will I drink on Fat Tuesday and do I drink Bud Light because it taste good or because it’s less filling?
You have so much on your mind that making plans for the number one “holiday” for love seems nearly impossible. No need to worry, I’ve compiled a list that won’t break the bank and will help keep you in your relationship for at least another month or two.
If your lady is a chocolate lover you may want to make a reservation with Dallas by Chocolate or Dallas Savory Bites tour. $45/pp. price includes private bus transportation, beverages (wine or water), samples and much more.
If chocolate isn’t her thing maybe a little blood and mayhem will do the trick, love comes in all forms right. A wicked kind of love will be introduced at the Valentine’s Day Massacre at Moxley Manor, there is nothing like a haunted house on Valentine’s Day to get the romance started. $15/pp.
If you’re into musicals, the Dallas Summer Musical at Fair Park is where you want to be on Valentine’s Day, Catch Me if You Can, based off of the hit DreamWorks film runs from February 12-24 and is sure to put a smile on her face while making you appear cultured. Ticket prices vary.
Speaking of culture, the Dallas Museum of Art has an extensive collection of art-related titles and really cool collectible treasures, you can get all of that plus live jazz, in the words of Charlie Sheen, Winning. Oh yea, it’s free on Thursday.
Last resort, you could cook and if your culinary skills are not that great, order in from her favorite restaurant. Set the table with candles and a table cloth, play light music in the background and order a delicious dessert to end the night.
The truth is, Valentine’s Day is not about gifts and flowers, well it shouldn’t be, it is supposed to be about showing the person you love just how much they mean to you. So whatever your plans are, make sure they come from the heart and try not to mention Beyoncé at all during the night, the results would be the opposite of winning.
