Whether you’re so over yet another consumer-driven holiday or you’re totally in it to spoil your sweetie, read on for some alternative ideas this V-day.
But seriously, hold off on the flowers and chocolate. Remember: they’ll all be half-off or in every available garbage can by Wednesday.
Don’t Just Be a Beauty, Be a Brain!
Prove to that hunk down the hall that you’re more than just a pretty face and take advantage of Trivia Tuesday. Stump Trivia is all over the city. From Roxy’s to Whiskey’s, Otto to Sunset Cantina, you have no excuse to miss such fun.
Check out their website for events throughout the Bean (or visit me a.k.a. your favorite server at the Friendly Toast in Back Bay).
Grab a Mate, and Have a Skate Date.
The Boston Common Frog Pond is also hosting free skating February 20-24 for children and families. For more information, see here. Grab your friends and form a family of your own if your actual siblings can’t join.
Why so Serious?
It’s just another day, so don’t waste away in tears–unless they are laughing tears. After all, what’s consumerism without a little comedy?
Valentine’s Day is for the heART.
Student ID’s are everything. Use yours to go to the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and so many more for free or discounted prices. Don’t graduate without utilizing these opportunities (seriously seniors, you have three months).
Whatever you do, make the best of it. I’ll see you all at Star Market on Wednesday for the rejected chocolate sale.
