Valentine's Date Night Ideas for Dining and Dancing the Night Away

Written by Lyndsay McCabe  |  23. January 2016

Valentine's Day is around the corner, so it is time to start making plans, booking reservations, and getting ready for that special night with your special someone!  This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday, so many restaurants and venues are offering special Valentine events on Friday and Saturday nights so that you can stay out late on a romantic date without worrying about work the next day. Lots of dancing and food will be served up at these events, with dinners ranging from buffets to five-course meals. The best love songs will also be performed by cover bands this weekend, with a night of Sinatra Love Songs on Friday night, followed by the cast of Beatlemania performing in Smithtown on Saturday night.  You could also take your date to a night of comedy with Tim Meadows, known for his character "The Ladies Man" on Saturday Night Live, and share plenty of memorable laughs.

With reservations booked and thoughtful gifts ready, you'll be prepared for a great Valentine's Day (or weekend) date!  Now treat yourself and your date to one of these unforgettable romantic evenings!
