We Dare You To Try These This Valentine’s Day ?

Are you sick of traditional activities or date ideas for Valentines Day? Do you even like Valentine's Day? We dare you try these new and non-traditional activities whether you're single, celebrate "Galentine's Day" or are totally in love.

*Although split into sections, anyone can try these activities no matter your relationship status*

For anyone really... Try these!

Pay it Forward

You never know what's going on in someone's life and sometimes paying for the next person in line can brighten their day. Maybe try it the next time you're visiting one of our cafes or when you're in the drive-thru. Share the love!

Attend a Random Concert You Know Nothing About

Seriously, go to Google, type in upcoming concerts and buying the cheapest tickets you find (or find a free event!) You'd be surprised, you may love the band or artist you stumble upon. 

Did you know we sometimes host free performances at the library? Come see the Chihera in Concert, opens a new window at Eloise May!

Let The Restaurant Choose Your Meal

Think of this as living life on the edge. Do this with friends, family or on your own. You can go through the drive-thru or ask your waiter to choose. You never know what you'll get but its a fun way to try new foods and lots of different fast food places for fun!

In a Relationship? Try These!

Blindfold Book/Movie Challenge

Need to spice up your book or movie choices? Head to the library, put on a blindfold and let your partner guide you to your next find. 

Instructions: Set your hand along a shelf, run it along slowly until your partner says to "STOP". Pick up the book or movie and that is the next book you'll read or movie you'll watch! 

Letter Date Night

Need to spice up date night? Here's a fun idea!

Instructions: Use a random letter generator and pick a random letter. EVERYTHING you do or eat or watch will have to start with that letter the rest of the night. For example: The generator chooses "W". You can go to the store and have wine, waffles, whipped cream and "whole" strawberries. Then you can watch a movie that starts with the letter "W". It's a great way to get creative!

Fancy Recipe from a Cookbook

Skip the crazy restaurants on or around Valentine's Day! Randomly choose a cookbook from the library and randomly select a recipe (or a few) to cook at home! Check out some fancier cuisines or food from other countries to try out new foods. 

Need a little help finding a good cookbook?

"Galentines" Dance Class

We're not talking about your traditional dance class, we're talking about something unique. Maybe try out an Aerial workout or would you fancy a Silent Disco? Have you heard of Boogie Bouncing? This isn't really dancing but you could go to a bounce house haven, opens a new window...

It's all about getting out of your comfort zone and having a ball of a time!
