valentine_cowIn case you haven’t gotten the hint, TODAY is VALENTINE’S DAY!  And this year the holiday happens to fall on a Friday.  If you have a special someone, it’s like the universe is just setting up the perfect occasion for you to go on a date.  If you don’t have a special someone, that’s okay too, we have some awesome event recommendations for you as well.

You still have time to plan the perfect date or find an event to attend solo or with friends.  Don’t just show up on your date’s doorstep with a box of chocolates bought last minute from the drug store or spend the evening alone crying into your soup as you pet your many cats.  Read on below for some great Houston area Valentine’s Day events and happenings.

DISCLAIMER: If you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because of the over-commercialization of a holiday created by corporations specifically to boost flower and card sales or whatever your reason, you might want to stay in tonight.  Grab some popcorn and put on a movie, because lovebirds celebrating this holiday are going to be out in full force: whispering sweet-nothings, giving each other cheesy gifts, holding hands and doing all manner of lovey-dovey things. Non-Valentine’s Day supporters may just want to avoid public spaces tonight.  Now that we are ready, let’s go!

First, who will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day with?

A.  Significant Other

B.  By My Awesome Self
