It’s the beginning of February.  Valentine’s Day is next week.  Restaurants have been booked for months, and you’re not super overly prepared so you don’t have any plans.  You’re freaking out thinking of things to do, but come up blank.  It seems like when it comes to Valentine’s Day, you have to have a plan in September or somebody else already took it.

Well, you’re in luck!  Here are some “last minute” Valentine’s day ideas to help you impress your significant other during the holiday!  From cheap to far away, you should be able to find something good.


Grab Takeout And Some Airplane Views

Casual romantic night your style?  Just grab some Sushi, Chinese, or some amazing Pizza and head on over to the airport lookout.

Directions to the look out here.  Just get to the intersection of Piper Ln and Lowndes Hill Rd.  It’s fairly hard to miss.

A Musical Valentine - Peace Concert Hall

Remember, that great hit "I'll be" from the late 90s? Singer and songwriter, Edwin McCain, will be returning back to his hometown as the vocalist for Greenville Symphony Orchestra's A Musical Valentine conducted by Edvard Tchivzhel. Concert begins at 7:30 PM - get tickets here.

Strossner’s Valentine’s Day Cake

Feel like staying in and getting your sweet-tooth on or just wrapping up dinner on a high note?  This famous bakery cooks up some extra romantic cakes for V Day.  Nothing shows someone that you love them like eating 2lbs of cake with them.  Find your favorite here.

Valentine’s Day Improv or Stand-Up

Best form of love is laughter?  Well, here ya go.   A special improv night for Valentine’s Day right downtown.  Presented from the Alchemy Comedy Theater at Coffee Underground.  Cost $12 and from 7:30 – 8:45.  If you’re feeling guilty about all that food and wine you just had, I heard laughing is the best ab workout.  Get tickets right here.

Mike Epps will be swinging by Bon Secours Wellness Arena for The Platinum Comedy Tour. If you loved him on Next Friday and The Hangover, you'll love hearing his stand-up comedy. You can even upgrade to a Valentine's Dinner before the show in the Stella Lounge. Details here.

Taking A Little Trip

Escape the same city you’re in every day and go somewhere new.  How about these two Valentine’s Day events that’ll really be fun.  

First, Unwine and Dine.  Hosted by Monarch Café and Fresh Food Store in Spartanburg.  Have some fun by making your own entrée while the chefs cook up some apps and serve signature drinks and wine.  That’s a good night.  Check it out here.

Second, Oskar Blue’s Beer Dinner for Couples.  This is a no brainer.  Sounds like the best night ever.  Hosted by Oskar Blue’s in Brevard, NC.  Enjoy a 5 course meal with expert beer pairing for each one.  $130 from 6pm – 9pm.  Link to buy tickets here.  You might actually want to get a hotel or something afterwards.  You can check those out here.

Waffle House Valentines Special

So certain Waffle House’s go all out on Valentine’s Day.  Heart everywhere.  Pink lights.  Some let you bring your own candles (it’s happened before).  Click here to check out which WaHo’s participate.
