The Princess Bride at the Rio Theatre
Catch the classic movie and some great acoustic performances from JUNO Award nominated local band Said the Whale and Jasper Sloan Yip. Show starts at 7 pm.
Tickets are $15 in advance. The best part... if you're single and drastically upset about that fact you can always just grab a seat in the darkened theatre and nobody will see you quietly crying to yourself the whole night.
The Candy Isle
Ok, so maybe this is a Willy Wonka fan's ideal Valentine's day date but who are we kidding, everybody loves candy. Or at least they should. Whether you're looking for a romantic date, friendly date, or even a solo date why not go visit a candy store? Spend your time looking through the unique assortment of candy options and international imports. It's simple fun and perfect for any budget size. And depending on your age you can even reminisce about the glorious candy you had as a kid... and then feel really old for saying something like that. After your purchase take a stroll around the city and enjoy eating your candy treasure. The walking will help burn off all the sugar you're eating.
Skating at Robson Square
Possibly one of the best things about hosting the 2010 Olympic Winter Games was the renovation of the Robson Square skating rink. A casual romantic setting and affordable on any budget, skating also provides the classic middle school excuse to hold any potential date's hand, especially if either of you are not an experienced skater. Score one for those lacking athletic ability or balance! Access to the rink is free and skate rentals are just $3. Open until 9pm Sunday-Thursday, and till 11pm Fridays and Saturdays. *Suggested romantic follow up... sitting down with a hot chocolate from the Starbucks across the street to warm up after.
Make it a party, a romantic date or just have a bite to eat. You'll always have a good time at The Eatery."
Whatever you end up doing this Valentine's Day, just have fun. Whether you are madly in love with your soulmate or enjoying life unattached, remember it's only really just another day... so enjoy it.
