For Athletic Couples: Summit Climbing Gym (Multiple Locations). If you use the term “swole-mate,” this one’s for you. Summit Climbing Gyms is throwing a two-for-one Valentine’s Day special at all four of their locations. Bonus points — it’s only $20 for all day climbing, yoga, exercise classes and rental gear. Boom!
For The Foodie Couples: Tacos & Margarita Tour (5118 Greenville Avenue, Dallas). Dallas By Chocolate does one thing, and they do it well — food tours. This special edition Valentine’s tour is no different, shuttling y’all to stops in Lake Highlands, Oak Cliff and East Dallas for some of the best tacos and margaritas Dallas has to offer. Drink up!
For The Risque Couples: Pretty Things PeepShow (1230 West Davis Street, Dallas). For the couples that like to push the limits, we’ve got the Pretty Things Peepshow happening at the Kessler. What’s better than a night out seeing naughty puppets, sword swallowing, magic and, of course, burlesque? Not a whole lot. Hey, that same answer works for the question, “How much clothing will the dancers be wearing,” too, we suppose.
For The Hipster Couples: Double Wide’s 1980s Valentine’s Prom (3510 Commerce Street, Dallas). Like doing things a little differently? Put on your fave retro ’80s outfit and head to Double Wide to dance your heart out at their 1980s Valentine’s Prom. Not the dancing type? Instead of being a wallflower, take some classic prom pictures, snack on food from Easy Slider and take in performances by Dallas Hall and Oates cover band The Rich Girls, and New York’s Dezi 5, who’ll be covering Beyonce’s Lemonade. on this occasion.
