Top Ten Last Minute Ideas for Valentine's Day in OKC
10. Belle Kitchen – Valentine’s Macarons

9. Eric Johnson At VZD’s – Live & Acoustic

7. Two For One At The Zoo
Valentine’s day lands on a Tuesday this year, so why not save some money at the Zoo. Two for the price of one admission on Tuesdays at the Zoo is fun for everyone. Especially if the kids will be joining you for Valentine’s day this year.
6. Dinner With Art For Dessert At OKCMOA
Celebrate Valentine’s Day this year at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art Cafe with a four-course meal and an elegant atmosphere. Reservations can be made day of and it comes with a Museum full of great modern art.
5. Build Your Own
Valentine’s Day does not have to be the same old holiday it has always been. Nothing is more romantic than spontaneous planning, it will keep your favorite person on their toes. Grab a bottle of wine at Broadway Wine Merchants on Automobile Alley, pick up a pizza from The Wedge Pizzeria on Western Ave. and a night cap at Ludivine in Midtown. Roll the dice and mix it up.
4. The Plant Shoppe & Okay Yeah Co.
Is your Valentine a morning person that likes to head to bed early? Try coffee and breakfast at Okay Yeah which is located in the Plant Shoppe in Film Row. Not only can you get a yummy treat, you can buy a beautiful living gift for your most loved
3. Beer & Palette At Anthem Brewery
This is a perfect spot for those groups of friends with a majority of singles. Sometimes Valentine’s Day can be a bummer to our single neighbors. Why not spend time with a group and share the love with everyone.
2. Traditional Wine & Dine With A Twist
Sometimes it is hard to come up with a great idea, especially if you are not the romantic type. Try something new or go somewhere you have never been. A great place to start would be the new 21c Museum Hotel. They have a great restaurant in the lobby called Mary Eddy’s, a modern art gallery and luxury rooms with a great view. A perfect place to wow your Valentine.
1. An All District Valentine
First stop, Downtown to buy flowers from the Curbside Chronicle vendors. Bouquets will be available for sale in front of Leadership Square from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. This will be a long night, so grab a coffee at Coffee Slingers on Automobile Alley. Try a different place for each course. Start at Slaughter’s Hall in Deep Deuce and grab one of many tasty appetizers. Head to the Plaza for your first plate at The Pritchard who is new to the district. After that find a main course at Pizzeria Gusto in Uptown 23rd they have a great wine list. Take a short trip from there to the Paseo Arts District and indulge your taste buds at the Paseo Grill. Their dessert menu is one of the best in the City. Finish your night off in Film Row at Flashback Retro Pub where you can grab a night cap and some nostalgia for video game geek in all of us.
