Fun Valentine’s Day Events for Plano Couples

It’s that time of the year again! A day made especially for lovers and romantics at heart. If that’s you and you also happen to live in Plano, Texas, then you’re in for a treat this year. Millennium Dental has scoured the internet to give you top 5 things for couples to do on Valentine’s Day.

1. You Sleuth

Do you and your partner love playing detective? You Sleuth virtual events combine the investigative elements of Sherlock Holmes and the augmented reality aspect of Pokémon Go. You and your partner will get the chance to hit the streets and hunt for clues outdoors without the fear of getting close to anybody not in your group.

Valentine’s is all about doing the things you love with the person you’re in love with while you’re somewhere you both cherish, and You Sleuth checks all three boxes. You’ll play the game at a time of your choosing, interact virtually through your smartphone with other people in your group, and go around your neighborhood using the in-game, real-world map to hunt down clues, eliminate the innocent, and find the crook.

Since the game lasts around 90 minutes to two hours, it’s probably a good idea to do it before the big romantic dinner.

2. Valentine’s Day Love Flames

Some romantic music, spicy poetry, and a fancy dinner gives you the 10th annual Mike Guinn Entertainment Valentine’s Event—Love Flames. The late-afternoon celebration doesn’t just promise romance and intimacy, but also a dash of sassy and “sin-sual.” There’ll be entertaining live singing, classy spoken word, and fun special moments.

The Valentine-themed event will be in the Boho Courtyard of the Firehouse Gastro Park. Tickets come in two options: a 6ft table for a couple at $30 or a VIP table for $40. You’ll get drink and menu specials for you to choose from and pay separately.

The Firehouse Gastro Park is a smoke-free area that also offers free parking.

3. Cupid Virtual Run

Now this event is for Plano couples looking for something fun to do on Valentine’s while also giving back to the community. The Cupid Virtual Run is in support of the Kid 2 Kid Box, a program that helps children experience and learn about the world.

Once you buy your ticket, you’ll get a virtual packet with 12 digital tools designed to make your run awesome as well as a large medal and running shirt, which will be shipped to your home. You’ll have the option of participating in any running distance you like, from 5K to a half marathon, or anything in between.

Since everything happens virtually, you can start the race at your own time and you and your partner can follow your favorite Plano trails. You’ll get all the excitement (and adrenaline) of taking part in a race without the hassle of long lines, the risk of big crowds, and the pressure of competing with others.

4. Virtual Valentine’s Day Painting Party

Don’t let the name fool you, this party isn’t for the Picassos or the Van Goghs, but for couples who want to create notes of love on Valentine’s Day. For one and a half hours it won’t matter if your teddy bear is two small circles and one large, you’ll look forward to seeing the ears your partner drew.

Paint for Purpose created the event for couples to create one painting made of two canvases, where each partner tries to paint a matching half to their better-half’s canvas.

Participants have the option of using their own tools or ordering a kit and having it shipped to you in Plano. The kit contains a disposable apron, a plate to act as a palette, one skinny and one big brush, a plastic cup, one 10×8 canvas board, and the selected paint for the project.

5. Love Stories of Paris’ Left Bank

We would be remiss in creating a list of things to do on Valentine’s Day without mentioning Paris at least once. It may not be safe to travel to the City of Love but we sure can take a tour to where all the best love stories start—at a café.

Through a virtual tour, Professor Andrew Lear and Edith de Belleville will tell you all about the wild love stories of the Left Bank.

Hear about Sartre and de Beauvoir’s much-talked-about open non-marriage of over 40 years. Move on to Juliette Gréco and her inter-racial romantic affair with Miles Davis. And explore the love affair between the great surrealist painter Salvador Dalì and his thought-to-be-transgender muse, Amanda Lear.

You’ll look at how far love has come, its strength in overcoming what seemed impossible, and its endurance through history.

While Valentine’s Day looks a little different this year, it encourages us to branch out and explore our creativity by creating special moments without the crowds. We hope you have a day full of love surrounded by the special people in your life.
