Things to do for February 14, 2013
Shredding Love Notes, Racing Ferraris and Inigo Montoya
The state of the weekend is strong.
The Least Romantic Party in Town
Maybe there’s someone you genuinely love. That’s nice. Don’t take them here. Because Frankie’s is hosting an anti–Valentine’s Day party tonight. On deck: a bunch of people dressed in black, $3 drinks and a shredder for destroying old love notes. Or incriminating photos... tax records... whatever.
The Princess Bride at the Texas Theatre
Fancy dinners are great. Seriously, we love those things. But sometimes you need a date idea that’s a little more low-key. Like watching The Princess Bride in a historic Oak Cliff movie theater. Or renting Men in Tights at home. Wait, no, definitely the first one.
Scaring the Hell Out of Your Date
Taking your date to a haunted house on Valentine’s Day: that’s... different. This weekend, swing by the Moxley Manor, and you’ll be winding down dark corridors as very unromantic, chain-saw-related things take place before you. This probably won’t end well.
Making Love Potions at Cook Hall
Sure, you can always go to a bar, order a drink, drink said drink and be done with it. Or you can visit Cook Hall and request their DIY Valentine’s cocktail kit. Inside: a split of champagne, mixers, herbs, bitters and tools. Maybe garnish with an oyster or seven.
Here’s the Keys to a Ferrari
Tight body. Supple curves. Moves quickly. Yup, Ferraris are magnificent things. And this weekend, you can drive one. Just book a car through the Exotic Driving Experience, and you’ll race around the track as your shotgun-sitting copilot doles out instructions. Like “Another left turn here.”
