You can celebrate Valentine’s Day in all sorts of ways with your partner, family, or your friends. It’s a great occasion to treat yourself or to try something new. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s a prime opportunity to support local Saint John businesses whether you are planning to stay in, try a new activity, or go out for dinner!
If you are celebrating at home, grab takeout from a local restaurant, like a pizza from Pomodori, potato nachos from Churchills, or curry from Thandis. Then try one of the virtual games from Breakout Saint John for a challenge or a relaxing evening, light some candles (Juniper, Inpursuit, and the Urban Shoe Myth all have excellent options), cuddle up, and watch a new movie.
If you plan on doing an activity for Valentine’s Day, there are tons of different options indoors and outdoors in Saint John. If you are up for an activity, you can go to the Art Warehouse to give painting a try, throw Axes at Woodchucks (Woodchucks even has a Valentine’s Day special for couples), or head over to DIY Studio on Rothesay Avenue to paint your own pottery. If you feel like spending time outside, give ice skating a try at Lily Lake, or go for a winter walk around the Irving Nature Park.
If dressing up and heading out for dinner or a drink is more your thing, Saint John has many great options. East Coast Bistro is offering a Valentine’s Day Tasting Menu, Gahan is hosting a Hoppy Valentines Day Beer Tasting, and Italian By Night is opening up on Monday night when they are typically closed!
Wherever your plans are for Valentine’s Day, we hope you treat yourself!
