One of the biggest NYC events in February is Valentine’s Day. NYC offers plenty of ideas that should help you plan the Goldilocks of dates: one that's not too cheap, not too expensive, not too over-the-top and not too uncaring—it'll be just right. Enjoy a decadent dinner at one of the best NYC restaurants, take one of our cool and romantic walking tours or invite your date over and put on our playlist of the best sex songs for your homemade, candlelit dinner. Single or not the romantic type? Luckily, there's always a party worth going to in our pick of the best parties in New York.

When is Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day falls on February 14 every year.

There are some good options here but I wish they had listed the Valentine's Dome Double Feature event happening at MoMA PS1 Friday night. A friend just told me about it and it seems like a lot of fun to see two awesome movies(Some Like it Hot and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) with friends or a date for only $10. It is definitely another great option for anyone without Valentine's day plans.

This is a really nice variety of options. I love that you have the price ranges. For those holding out until the weekend, Winard Harper at the Metropolitan Room late night set is a good bet.
