Another year has come along which means the inevitable holiday of love is quickly approaching. Yes, Valentine’s Day is almost here; the holiday that is both hated and loved by so many. No matter how you feel about Valentine’s Day, there are all kinds of events and activities to make February 14 a great day for anyone. Here are the top five Valentine’s Day outings that are sure to make your day.

If you’re one of the lucky ones spending this day with someone special, dinner is a must. Many restaurants have specials for couples on Valentine’s Day, but none are quite as good as what Houlihan’s has to offer. For just $50 you and your partner can enjoy a four-course meal. With that price you will get a shareable appetizer, choice of soup or salad, entree and dessert. If you’re single, there’s no need to worry. You can enjoy a three course meal, bar side, for only $25. Hurry up and make your reservations!

If dinner is too cliché for you then head to the Kansas City Zoo. The Zoo will be hosting an event called the “Kiss and Tail” where you can explore love in the animal kingdom. There will be live music, hors d’oeurvres and a comedic presentation on jungle love. This is the perfect way to shake up Valentine’s Day this year. Tickets are $50.

Boulevard Brewing Company is also hosting a Valentine’s Day themed event for all of those 21 and older. This might be the dream date for all the beer drinkers. Boulevard is calling this event, “Paper Crafts and Boozy drafts/ Valentine’s Day edition.” For $25 you can join host Emily Farris in crafting a homemade card while enjoying a beer cocktail developed by Emily, along with an additional beer. This event will take place at Boulevard Thursday, February 1 from 6-8 p.m.

If you and your partner want to stay active and healthy on Valentine’s Day instead of indulging yourselves in chocolate, then head on over to Climb KC. Climb KC is a rock climbing facility filled with different levels of rock walls. Unlimited climbing is just $18. To complete the date, try cooking a fresh meal at home with your Valentine!

Don’t worry single ladies, it’s time to find your perfect outing for Valentine’s Day or rather Galentine’s Day. Gather your girlfriends and head to Weston, Mo., on February 11 for a delicious Galentine’s Day brunch. Tickets are $23, and you get to enjoy a waffle bar, brunch goodies and beverage. Why not spend the holiday of love with some of your closest friends?

Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or Singles awareness day, shower the people you care about most with love and appreciation.
