Still have nothing planned for the most romantic day of the year? Now Problem! Here’s a curated list of deals and experiences you can still take advantage of:
Start your night with a New York Ballet
Thanks to GiltCity, you and your significant other can turn this holiday into a cultural experience in New York City. The night, starting at 7:30 p.m., will include a viewing of both “La Sylphide” and “Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2” in the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Don’t worry about an exorbitant price tag. At 45 percent off, each ticket will cost just $80 or $98 depending on where you want to sit. (The $60 options are already sold out so you may want to make a decision soon!)
Get a Close-Up of The Skyline
Whether you live in New Jersey, Philadelphia or Manhattan, it’s always nice to get back on the water and re-discover the area around you. Companies such as Hornblower New York, Bateaux and Spirit Cruises allow you to do just that with brunch and dinner cruises throughout the weekend. The latter is supposed to give you a view of the New York skyline, which can definitely be a welcome change from your typical Sunday at the local cafe.
Indulge in a Wine Tour (with Chocolate or Live Music!)
A heart-shaped box of chocolates doesn’t have to be your only sweet this weekend. Take the day to explore your local winery! (Yes, even New Jersey has some!) If you’re in Connecticut, CTWine.com has a full list of options to meet your every desire. New York or New Jersey residents can feel free to check out this trip into the Hamptons wine country.
That’s it for now! Check out my last post for more general options to solve any Valentine’s Day planning issues.
