With only two weeks before Valentine’s Day, it’s time to really buckle down and get to planning! Dinner reservations, tickets to events, and even gifts are quickly being claimed, and if you don’t want to be left out in the cold, you need to be getting your Valentine’s Day schedule locked down. Here are some great events in the DC metro that you might consider.
Chris Botti will be performing at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on Valentine’s Day. He’s one of the top selling American jazz instrumentalists. Since his debut, he has won a Grammy and released four top selling albums. If you or your date is a jazz lover, this is a great event to attend.
On the other hand, if opera is more your things, the restaurant Tuscana West has teamed up with the Washington National Opera for the Weekend of Love. On Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th, various artists will perform love songs, many from popular operas, while guests dine on Tuscana West’s fine entrees. Reservations are, of course, necessary.
Get wooed at the zoo on February 11. The National Zoo will offer this free event for couples looking for something a bit different. During the evening, you and your date will learn about animal mating and reproduction—it’s fun and educational! In addition to the program, hor d’oeuvres and a free treat are included, plus there will be a cash bar.
There are several different outdoor ice skating rinks in the DC metro, and many will be turned into romantic wonderlands on Valentine’s Day. After dinner, why not step outside and enjoy skating under the starlight?
