If you're anything like me you don't have a ton of time to think about what you're doing tomorrow let alone to book Valentine's Day plans weeks in advance. In my search for a few last minute ideas for date night on Wednesday I actually came across some great options, so in an effort to help narrow down your search here are a few of my last minute date night ideas for Valentine's.
Share the Love - Lifestyle Meditation
This isn't strictly a partners event but would certainly be a lovely shared experience. In a two hour workshop at Lifestyle Meditation you'll open the class with one hour of Flow yoga tailored to open the heart and release stored emotions. Follow that up with some gentle Yin, Love Pizza and wine and you've got yourself a date night.
Cortez by Candlelight
This entirely candlelit 3-course dinner is happening at the Old Strathcona Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar - El Cortez. The 7 p.m. seating is sold out but there are still tickets to the 9:00 p.m. seating. Pair the late night romantic dinner with a pre-dinner screening of Guillermo del Toro's 'The Shape of Water' at the Princess Theatre at 6:45 p.m. and you're set.
There's five different Paint Nite's happening on Valentine's including a couple of partner paintings that look fun. No matter how many of these I do I still love an evening sipping on a cocktail, stretching that creative muscle and enjoying the relaxing motion of brushstrokes on a canvas.

Plenty of great performance art to take in at the ATB Financial Arts Barns this Wednesday with Chinook Series blowing into town. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.chinookseries.ca. Chinook also offers a Pay What You Will program. A minimum of 25% of seats for each performance has been allotted for patrons to contribute what they feel the show is worth, or to pay what they are able.
Silver Skate Festival - Meet Me at Lover's Lane
If you're fine with celebrating a day or two after February 14th, the Meet me at Lover's Lane event at the Silver Skate Festival still has tickets available for February 16 & 17. You can't go wrong with a little hot chocolate and a romantic lantern-lit sleight ride through Hawrelak. Once you're done enjoy all of the free festivities silver skate has to offer.
