Keep It Local This Valentine’s Day
Spice up this Valentine’s Day with these unique, yet romantic, date ideas that are sure to leave your special someone feeling warm and fuzzy.
The Suite Experience
Turn your living room in to a hotel suite. Start the evening off with a relaxing in-house couple’s massage, companies like Zeel offer reasonable rates and masseuses provide massage tables; followed by a candlelight dinner delivered from your favorite Harlem restaurant. Be sure to serve dinner on the China reserved for special occasions.
Traditional Dining with a Twist
In a city with over 3,000 restaurants finding one with private dining is as simple as doing a search on OpenTable, under large party reservations. What makes having an entire room and staff dedicated to just you and your sweetheart even more special? How about a saxophone player serenading the two of you over dinner?
Be a Tourist in Your City
Contact your local car service and hire a driver for the day. Put together an itinerary of all the places you have
yet to see with your significant other, or better yet, re-enact your first date. Make sure to take lots of pictures and video for memories to come.
