Dave, Mahoney & DK took some of your suggestions for Valentine’s Day gifts or activities and here’s what you said:
- I bought my wife a gift certificate to the The tea house under the oaks in league City. First time there ever! So I hope is a nice dinner. Looks really good.
- Nick’s Oyster bar in the woodlands! Is great and oysters are aphrodisiac!
- Cuchara restaurant is amazing and they have a special for Valentines!
- Red Lobster and going to see Deadpool – that’s what me and my hubby are doing
- Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland! The best spot for a Valentine’s Date
- We go low key and get Torchy’s Tacos! Then watch a movie with popcorn at home
- A walk through Buffalo Bayou park if the weather is nice, maybe bring a picnic dinner along
- I took my wife horseback riding last year. She loved it but we were so sore the next day.
- Mimosa Ranch is a great place to get away, especially with someone you love
- Union Kitchen is a great place to take a date. They have a guy singing live music on Friday nights that sounds like James Taylor. Very cool atmosphere.
- I always cook my wife a nice meal since she typically does the cooking for our family. Then we go out for dessert
- I call Diamond Cutters International every year in January and they help me design something for my wife. Last year I got her diamond earrings. This year it will be a necklace with our daughter’s name.
Here are a few more good ideas in Houston that Travel + Leisure posted on their website:
Spend the Day on a Cruise
There’s nothing better than enjoying fine foods, drinks, and possibly dancing the night away underneath the stars. Houston has two options for taking your love aboard. You can book a ride on the Spirit of the Bayou for their Cupid’s cruise, where $40 gets you sweet treats, bubbly, and ambiance fit for a royal couple, with spectacular views of downtown Houston. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, head to Hermann Park for the “Valentine’s Day Dinner and a Cruise.” For $50, enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner for two on Pinewood Café’s patio, followed by a half-hour cruise in a pedal boat on the lake.
Dine in Style
The city’s culinary scene is continuously regarded as one of the best in the nation, so it’s worth braving the crowds on this holiday. At Hugo’s, a special menu features duck carnitas, shrimp with hibiscus mole, and a hazelnut-mandarin chocolate bomb ($75 per person). Holley’s Seafood is a perennial favorite for its oysters and caviar service—not to mention the sleek setting. Looking for a sure thing? Harold’s in the Heightsalways delivers with its polished take on Southern comfort food, and while critic’s darling Underbelly isn’t offering a special menu for the holiday, the n’duja dumplings, braised goat, and Singapore sweet chili blue crab always make the experience feel like a special occasion.
Romantic Movie Revue
In a newly budding relationship, and want to take the pressure off of your Valentine’s Day date? Bring your date to the Museum of Fine Arts, where they’ll be screeningBeauty and the Beast, Jean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece, as part of its Restorations and Revivals program.
Name a Roach After an Ex
Starting February 1, guests of the Houston Museum of Natural Science can name anyone of their choosing after a roach through the museum’s website. Receipients will receive a certificate via email announcing that a cockroach was named in their honor, and their namesakes will live in the Cockrell Butterfly Center, if they want to visit and say hello.
