We may see our final summer sunsets in February, but the second month of the year is as steamy as ever. Hit up the city’s swankiest boutique florists on Valentine’s Day to show your favourite person that you care. Or, woo a new beau by shouting them some noods at the spicy Lunar New Year markets and feasts, then spread all the colours of love at Mardi Gras.

Since it’s the month of that lovin’ feeling, we’ve found some alluring bars for first dates, other watering holes to meet similarly inclined singles, and quirky, cheap date ideas that won’t leave your wallet embarrassingly bare.
