Tired of the same ‘ol V Day dinner date? We get it. No reason you can’t spice it up with your bae and do something unique this Valentine’s Day. Don’t worry, we kept it local to Toronto — as much as we all want to get the hell out of this deep freeze! To help and make it as brainless as possible, we curated a few last-minute unique, and over the top, date experiences to make it feel like the first date again.
Albeit, there is dinner involved in some of them — but, hey… we all need to eat and foodies at heart. No teddy bears or chocolate hearts needed here. 😉
