If you’re looking to plan a unique Valentine’s Day date, look no further than Town Center of Virginia Beach. This year, celebrate with one of these unusual, but romantic, options. You can still treat your Valentine to dinner (and flowers, and jewelry, and a box of chocolates) but make it a little unique this year and add on one of these fun activities.

1) Opt for something colorful and creative this Valentine’s Day! Muse Paintbar is celebrating Valentine’s Day all weekend, including sessions for the whole family, great personalized gift ideas, and a couples’ night on Valentine’s Day. Check out their calendar to sign-up.

2) You can’t get any sweeter than spending Valentine’s Day surrounded by sweets in a gourmet bakery. Drop by Just Cupcakes for a treat. They’ll be serving cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, personal cakes and macarons. They will also have wine and champagne options to enjoy by the glass in store or bottles to take home.

3) Get an early start on your Valentine’s Day celebrations by listening to the finest musicians in New York, The Birdland All-Stars. This jazz group has been thrilling audiences at “The Jazz Corner of the World” for the last 10 years. Lucky us, they will be performing in Virginia Beach at the Sandler Center For The Performing Arts on Tuesday, February 13th. Get tickets.

4) Enjoy Chocolate Fondue for Two with your favorite Valentine at The Royal Chocolate. You’ll fall in love with their cozy atmosphere and the sweet chocolate aroma that fills this locally owned chocolate shop. Call (757) 557-6925 for reservations.

5) Back by popular demand, Zeiders American Dream Theater will host “Sex on Broadway.” The Broadway stage is no stranger to drama, comedy, or sex- and often all three at once! Celebrate Valentine’s Day with the Z with an evening of torch songs, romance, and ribaldry. Our funny, touching, and sexy Valentine card arrives again at the Z on 02/14, playing through 02/17. Get tickets.

6) Whether you’re single or happily taken, you can always have a fun time celebrating with your gals. This Galentine’s Day, meet at TWIST Martini Lounge for a girl’s only Networking Happy Hour from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM. 

7) If you can’t celebrate on Valentine’s Day, make plans for Thursday, the 15th at Hinterland Trading. Their “Succulents and Sangria” class makes for a sweet, fun and interactive date.
