Offbeat Valentine’s Day Dates in Dayton

If you’ve done the dinner and a movie date a thousand times and want something different for you and yours this Valentine’s Day, why not start by relaxing with some Valentine’s Couple’s yoga?  Want something a little more pulse-pounding?  Participate in the It’s Not Valentine’s Day 5k in Dublin or the Middletown Street Striders Sweetheart Shuffle.

Still thinking a meal fits the bill?  Save your dollars for the flowers and candy and take your sweetie to Waffle House or White Castle.   For Waffle House, the Beavercreek and Vandalia locations are participating in this twist on the traditional dinner date from 5 to 9 pm and reservations are required.  Craving a White Castle Valentine’s?  You’ll need to head to Cincinnati and call ahead; the restaurant requires reservations.


Think outside the take out box this Valentine’s Day!

Take your Valentine’s to a fun level with the Valentine’s Tea Dance at Always Ballroom Dance Studio.  You can saunter over to the other side of the activity spectrum and do a Couples Soldering Night at Proto Build Bar.

Valentine’s Day Mingles for the Singles

Single and searching this Valentine’s Day?  Attend the Meet, Mix, & Mingle at Scene 75!  Promising traditional “speed dating” plus activities sure to get you to mingle with the other singles, this event is perfect for those prowling for partners this Valentine’s Day!  Space is limited so be sure to sign up in advance.

Feeling creative?  Sign up for a canvas painting event with your besties.  Paint NitePainting with a TwistPinots Palette, and Barstools & Brushstrokes all feature fun painting events over the weekend perfect for you and a friend!


Painting events are fun for a girls night out!

We hope this gives you some ideas on how to un-idle your time this coming Valentine’s Day weekend.  If you know of a “can’t miss” event, be sure to post it on our Facebook page.
