Dates on a Dime

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 12:00:00 am

Heads up, ladies and gents, because the day of love is upon us – Valentine's Day, that is. If you haven't planned a sweet night for your fine fella or your gal pal, have no fear! There are still plenty of options that won't dive too deep into your savings account. Here are a few ideas to keep you out of the doghouse and in good graces with your special someone.

No time to order a custom bouquet? Head to Whole Foods for the timeless gift of fresh flowers – and with the Whole Trade seal, your blooms are guaranteed to be ethically grown and sustainable. While you are there, pick up a treat that is sure to earn you some bonus points with your sweetie. Whether you opt for a decadent dessert or something that's lighter in calories, the Whole Foods bakery uses the freshest ingredients to stock its shelves daily. There are even gluten-free treats, so anyone with a sweet tooth is sure to fall in love.

And who says you need reservations to dine in style on Valentine's Day? Opt out of candlelight and dine under the stars on the patio of Big Truck Tacos, or grab some all-American grub at S&B Burger Joint. If you are the type of person that likes to DIY, you could even make a picnic dinner to enjoy on the Grand Event Lawn at Myriad Botanical Gardens.

And if your language of love involves gifts galore, think outside of the box – literally. Help your other half discover their inner artist with a class from City Arts Center or the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. If a class is too much of a commitment, mix it up with an instant date night provided by Wine and Palette's step-by-step painting experiences. Not the artistic type? Take your adrenaline level up a notch with OKC Riversport's Adventure Saturdays. The Boathouse District's new features, such as the Air Express Zip Line and the SandRidge Sky Trail, will get your blood pumping as you take in one of Oklahoma City’s most exciting districts.
