First of all, I encourage all of you to use these next two days to their full advantage. Until the end of the day on Feb. 14th, you’ll still be able to use the code VDAY2012 to get 14 percent off your entire DrawTop order. Pretty great, huh? It’s ok if you already have a DrawTop, you can tell your friends or coworkers about the coupon code and make everyone happy.
2. Art is romantic, right?
The Museum of Fine Arts recently invited guests to partake in a nude scavenger hunt. Don’t worry, the guests themselves weren’t nude, but rather they were given clues directing them to various nude sculptures, paintings, etc. within the museum. Sounds kind of fun, yes? Unfortunately, they won’t be conducting these scavenger hunts on Valentine’s Day itself, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create your own fun scavenger-type game to help guide you through the museum (or, any other museum for that matter). If nudity doesn’t fuel your artistic fire, think about another artistic element you might enjoy and walk (don’t run) around the museum looking for examples of that particular style. And hey, if you do like the nude idea, I give you permission to browse the museum for the best nude artwork you can find!
3. Take a Dinner Cruise
I know it is February and it’s always colder on the water, but forget about the wind-chill and get yourself some dinner on a boat! It’ll be nice to get some fresh air while testing out those sea legs of yours.
There are a ton of different companies hosting Valentine’s dinner cruises (for example The Spirit of Boston and Mass Bay Lines to name a few in Rowes Wharf) but their menus and entertainment will vary. After clicking on a few different sites, I’m sure you’ll know which cruise is right for you and be out on the water in no time.
4. Dining in the dark
Ever eaten blindfolded before? Well, now is your chance! The Hampshire House in Beacon Hill is taking the dining experience to a new level: one completely reliant on taste, touch, and smell. Personally, I think it sounds fascinating, but potentially messy as well. If you are a picky eater, however, this may not be the best thing for you. Instead of looking at a menu and ordering your food after pondering the options for a bit, you’ll have to guess what you are eating at the Hampshire House. Individuals with allergies beware!
So, all in all, have an awesome Valentine’s Day. Hallmark holiday or not, it’s still an excuse to get out on a Tuesday night with either a romantic interest or a bunch of friends and do something out of the ordinary.
