Ahhh, romance is in the air.Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and we’re here to help.
Whether you’re planning something for that special someone, or you’re your own special someone, here are four ways to spend Valentine’s Day across Sacramento.
💘 Put on your fancy pants
If your boo is elegant, classy — the type of person who walks into a black-tie event and makes the room feel underdressed — then do it up. Treat them to a $500 dinner experience at the Chalet Event Center that includes live music, dancing, a professional photographer, and a five-course meal with filet mignon and lobster tails.
💘 Make it a party
The Valentine’s Day “Colors” bar crawl — complete with waived cover charges and food and drink specials — should be a surefire hit. Just be aware of the dress code for this event: wearing red means you’re single, black means taken, and blue means undecided (unless you’re looking to end the night with an argument, we recommend NOT wearing blue if you’re coupled up).
💘 Love yourself
Nonprofit Single Mom Strong is holding an event for women to spend the evening celebrating themselves(no matter their relationship status) — get dressed up, walk a red carpet for photos, listen to speakers, and connect with others.
💘 A quiet night in
If you’re looking to avoid all the February 14th hubbub, Selland’s Market Cafe has you covered with their dinner to-go. Choose from beef, salmon, or winter vegetable Wellington paired with either spinach and strawberry salad or a white cheddar and chive potato purée. The meal package also includes dessert — and champagne can be added on for an additional fee.
