Fun Valentine's Date

So many people come to Las Vegas, from near and far, to spend Valentine’s Day. A lot of tourists come in for a romantic staycation. And many locals use the holiday as a reason to get dressed up and head to one of our many world-class restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. With all the local options we have, romance in Sin City isn’t hard to come by. Especially if you’re willing to break out the wallet.

But if you really want to make your Valentine’s Day memorable, even the most romantic, expensive meal in Vegas might not be enough.

Yes, romance is great. And essential in every relationship. But, thanks to those cheesy romance films, many people think that’s all that it takes to create a long-lasting match. But it’s just not true. Romance alone isn’t enough if you want something that will last the test of time. What really gets couples through those more challenging parts of a relationship is laughter. Having fun together.

So, if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day date for your partner in Vegas this year, don’t stop at dinner and flowers. Throw in something fun for the two of you to do for the holiday as well. Though, with price inflations on Valentine’s Day alone, you could break the bank trying to keep up. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Here is a list of places in town that are offering a special, affordable menu for Valentine’s Day. And since you’ll have cash left over in the budget, I’ve thrown in ideas for something in the nearby area you can do to make the night fun as well as romantic.

Nothing super fancy. Just simple ideas for those of us who don’t need to spend a ton or have glitter thrown at us for what is, at the end of the day, another hallmark holiday. And, as I do, I kept it to places off of the Strip. Because you don’t need to add chaos to your Valentine’s Day plans.

But if you do decide to go more all out than this to make Valentine’s Day memorable this year, no judgement here. It’s still cheaper than couples counseling. – Wendy Rush, 96.3 KKLZ

  • Valentine's Tower at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas

    Nutella Crêpes mit Erdbeeren

    Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is offering a fun twist for their Valentine’s Day menu. Instead of a heart-shaped steak and chocolate lava cake, their Valentine’s Tower is three layers of beef tenderloin with green peppercorn sauce and French fries, Shrimp Provençale with angel hair pasta, and grilled chicken breast, with rosemary jus, spätzle and spring vegetables. Make it even more festive with the Nutella Crepes for dessert and the Cupid’s Kiss cocktail.

    And, of course, all of this food romance will be surrounded by the music and fun energy that comes with the Hofbräuhaus. So you won’t even have to go anywhere after dinner to add the laughs to the night.
