Valentine’s Day is coming up very quickly. While it may seem like you have plenty of time to make plans, you really don’t. This is especially true if you need to make reservations somewhere. Restaurants often fill up very quickly, while events are sold out days or weeks in advance. If you need an idea for something to do this Valentine’s Day, here are some events in the DC metro.
Dinner, of course, is always an option. There are some great restaurants in the area that have Valentine’s Day specials. Again, you really need to make reservations ahead of time—make them now if you can! Restaurants in the area having specials include 2941 Restaurant, 701 Restaurant, Bangkok Joe’s, Art and Soul, Bastille, Asia Nine Bar & Lounge, and Bourbon Steak.
If you want to add a little spice to your dinner, you can take a dinner cruise on the Potomac River. There are several different cruises, including ones on the Spirit of Washington and the Odyssey.
The National Museum of Crime and Punishment may not seem like the ideal place for a romantic date, but their “Crimes of Passion” event is actually geared towards romantic couples. From February 11 until the 15th, visitors get handcuffed together and then get to explore the different special exhibits exploring crimes of passion.
There are a few concerts going on this year in the DC area, including Valentine’s Day-themed concerts at the Strathmore Music Center and at the Kennedy Center.
For a more interactive event, you and your sweetheart can sign up for the Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunts. This amusing search sends participants into an art museum to search for nudity and answer entertaining questions. Note that reservations are required.
These are just a few things going on in the DC area this Valentine’s Day.
