It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and you’ve planned an extravagant dinner for two. Suddenly, your wallet feels thinner and your bank account smaller as you mentally add the prices of a candlelit dinner in the North End, plus flowers and chocolates for your date and a taxi ride both ways. But it’s all in the name of romance, right?
Wrong. Didn’t you ever listen to Paul McCartney? Perhaps money can buy love in Hollywood, but honey, you’re at Emmanuel College.
Whether you’re single or taken, this Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse to get off campus and explore Boston. Skip the pressure of an expensive evening and celebrate with one of these college budget-friendly events around the city.
Who ever said that romance was serious? Visit the Improv Asylum for their holiday-themed comedy sketch, “Love and Other Gateway Drugs.”
