I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe Valentines Day is right around the corner. It seems like New Years just happened! Time is flying by!
I have been searching the local scene for fun and interesting things to do this Valentines Day; single or taken, these adventures and things will sure make your day a special one!
Now I am not one for big expensive teddy bears and overpriced roses. To me, love is something that does not need to be shown on a day that society demands it to be. For me the special unexpected surprises mean 10000 times more then a crappy box of chocolates would on Valentine’s day. Those early morning coffee and breakfast in bed surprises, or late night ice cream, or spontaneous driving adventures, or a fresh bundle of flowers left on my night stand- those small things are the ones that mean the most.
Now- don’t get me wrong, don’t make the excuse to be a shut in this weekend (or do because it will literally be zero, yes 0 degrees this weekend)- But there are super fun, local, and exciting things to do this Valentines weekend worth mentioning! If you want to brave the cold- look into my fabulous Valentines day/weekend Ideas below!
1.) The Get Mortified Live Show in Cambridge MA.
“Witness a night of adults telling stories about their lives by sharing their most mortifying childhood artifacts (diaries, letters, lyrics, poems, home movies)… in front of total strangers”
Human connection is the bonding experience that we all need! That is why Post Secret does so well- we all want to feel connected. What a great way to spend “Singles Awareness Day” then with other people who want to tell their mortifying stories! Go alone, or with a partner or friend and you will surely have a some laughs!

3.) Single Date Night “Netflix and Chill Style”
Who says you can’t “Netflix and Chill” by yourself! I don’t know about you, but a big bottle of wine and some alcoholic ice cream is a night to look forward too- that and Netflix! A new line of Alcoholic Ice Cream, called Tipsy Scoop is now available at your local Daddy’s Dairy!
If Daddy’s Dairy wasn’t already awesome enough with its 3 locations (Stoughton, Brockton and Randolph MA) and their offerings of over 200 soft serve flavors, now they have this amazing Adult Made Ice Cream! Flavor shown below is Strawberry Chocolate Martini Kisses- pair that up with a box of chocolates and a bottle of “Fridays Brand” Mudslide and you’re in business! Who says you can’t spoil yourself on Valentines Day! Treating yourself to a lovely romantic night is just what the doctor ordered!
