You don’t have to break the bank, to express your love. Here are some fun activities to celebrate in style, for less.
Feast on a Prix Fixe Dinner
Open Table.com has an extensive list of Twin Cities restaurants offering set Valentine’s Day dinners, often at a discount. EX: Bar Abilene – $45 for appetizer, dinner and dessert for two, plus two glasses of Prosecco.
TOP TIP 1: Call the restaurant to confirm the deal, the food being offered, and that they received your reservation. Don’t just rely on a website.
TOP TIP 2: If you don’t see a deal being offered at the restaurant you want to visit, call them. They may have a Valentine’s Day special that’s not being widely advertised. Or, they may put something together, just for you and your sweetie.
Snuggle up for a Movie
This Thursday night at the Mall of America is Horror for the Holidays! They show holiday-themed horror movies for just $5 a ticket. EX: Showing My Bloody Valentine 3D at 7:30 on the 13th.
For the non-horror movie lovers, the Theatre’s Skybar will be offering drink deals and sweet treats from 6:30 to 8:30 on Valentine’s Eve.
