Valentine's Day events
Partners yoga, dancing, mini pop-up burlesque acts—and all before the business day starts. There will be some cold brew to get you going and breakfast provided by LemonKind, Manitoba Harvest and more. Yoga lasts until 7am, when the dancing starts. BYO yoga mat.
The theme for February's Moth-inspired storytelling event is very Valentine's Day-appropriate so get in the mood for love listening to your fellow Austinites revisit romantic memories. Ticket sales benefit the Austin Bat Cave's writing programs.
Is it love? Ask La Mystica Tarot card reader what the future holds at Whisler's sultry V-Day celebration that includes a special burlesque performance Mezcaleria Tobala, Ginny Maries Melange with a mood-setting musical set and dance jams care of Drew Davis Band—not to mention the romance-themed cocktail menu. Yeah, we think it's love.
Red wine and chocolates are perhaps traditional but we'll venture that local craft beer and chocolates might be more fun. Crave Artisan Chocolate is teaming up with Craft Pride for custom flights with specialty sweets available only on Valentine's Day, plus sips from breweries including Austin Beerworks and Blue Owl. First come, first served.
This urban winery is feeling the love with an all-day happy hour for Valentine's Day. Specials include $5 tap wines and red cans and discounted champs and cheese plates.
No comment on oysters' supposed aphrodisiac qualities but we do think slurping a dozen down sounds like a sweet way to spend Valentine's Day. Meet chef Maite Aizpurua in the hotel's courtyard lounge to learn how to shuck. Tickets include beer and wine pairings, cheese and charcuterie.
Don't sit on your broke ass—get to this party where DJ kidGorilla will be spinning TLC and more great artists from the 1990s. RSVP required. Want to reserve a table? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lovesick Austinites look for a second chance at romance in this show inspired by Missed Connections. And who knows—maybe there will be a post on Craigslist the next day about you at ColdTowne Theater laughing really, really hard.
Whether Valentine's Day makes you swoon or shrug, we can all get behind half-off bottles of wine at Gibson Street Bar. And if you're hungry, there's a special Valentine's menu—$35 each—featuring beef tenderloin, lobster risotto and a flourless chocolate torte. Just make that reservation before Tuesday.
What's Valentine's Day without a little heartbreak—or heartbreakers? Multiple artists will perform some of Petty's greatest hits at Hotel Vegas, plus some covers of Talking Heads and Bee Gees songs.
Why do some people break up—then turn around and make up? We don't know, but it's safe to assume this Austin-based group will belt Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" (among other hits) with enough soul to make you fall in love all over again.
Skip the champagne and get a few pours of Real Ale beer served alongside chocolate treats this Valentine's Day Weekend. The pairing includes three beers, a pour of the Blanco brewery's Hill Country Whiskey and candies courtesy of local chocolatier Steve Gillen.
