Be Our Valentine?

Date nights are hard to plan. Valentine’s Day date nights are harder to plan. Fret no more! Make this February 14th a Valentine’s Day to remember for your special someone with our perfect date night ideas. 

Stuffed to Perfection

The way to a woman’s heart is through food, so start the night off with tacos from Taco Mamacita or pizza from Bella Napoli. Hit the sweet spot and finish the night with gelato from Legato Gelato. You will sure have your special someone stuffed with happiness!

Tied with a Bow

They say the best things come in the smallest boxes. Pick out something that will make your Valentine’s smile at shops like Castilleja, Kore, Aesop, and American Threads. Make sure to tie it with a bow and you’re good to go!

Valentine’s Day is for the Boys

Men, don’t forget to look the part on the 14th. J. Crew Men’s and Alton Lane will help you dress to impress and a new hairstyle is a must when Rudy’s Barbershop is doing the cutting. Get the best view of your date with Warby Parker’s affordable yet luxurious eye ware that are sure to give her the best view as well.   

Grab a Drink, or Two

Start the night off at Barcelona Wine Bar with a glass of wine as smooth as you. More of a night cap person? No problem, Old Glory is open late for your late night libation needs. For something stronger try Edgehill Cafe for a shot of…caffeine.
