Valentine’s Day in DC

Valentine’s Day is here! Read on for a few ideas on how to celebrate the holiday in DC with your significant other or a great group of friends.


There are a number of restaurants throughout the District that are offering great deals on prefixed menus this Valentine’s Day.  Why not give the sweetheart pizza at Fuel Pizza & Wings a try? Or the three course option at Birch and Barley, where the chefs have created two one-night-only menu options.  Just make sure to call ahead to see if they still have openings.

Wanting to avoid the busyness of the DC restaurant scene?  Why not stay home and cook for your valentine? The internet is full of new recipes to try, but if you need a little guidance, give this Shrimp Scampi recipe a try – it’s a favorite in my house.

But what about dessert?  Luckily Founding Farmers is accepting orders for 7” mini versions of their house-made Red Velvet Layer Cake with whipped frosting.  Perfect for sharing, this dessert comes boxed and tied with a ribbon for your sweetheart.


Consider tickets to the Blues Alley for tonight!  The nation’s oldest continuing jazz and supper club is hosting V. Rich, a contemporary R&B artist who’s worked with singing greats like Lauryn Hill and Mya.  The venue provides a wide variety of entrees, drinks and late night fare.

Looking to dance the night away?  Give the Black Cat on 14th Street a try.  The lounge will be hosting the 13th Annual Valentine’s Day Rock and Roll Dance Party.  Coupled up or single, it doesn’t matter – this event is a blast for all.

Love improv?  Why not try Love Bites: Washington Improv Theater Takes on Valentine’s Day.  The Source Theater is the venue for this once a year show that’s guaranteed to garner audience involvement and more than a few laughs!
