Five Slacker-Friendly Solutions to Valentine's Day in Metro Phoenix
If you've been putting off buying mushy gifts and forgot to make a reservation for a romantic restaurant date tomorrow night, don't fret, there's plenty you can plan (even from work!) for Valentine's Day.
5. Grab a Last-Minute Card @ MADE, Bunky, or Frances
Forget Walgreens -- these three local boutiques have Valentines in stock for the big day. Cards range from $4 to $8, are handmade by artists around the country, and will beat the hell out of an eCard.
3. Valentine Films @ FilmBar
You're on your own for dinner, but for some post-grub entertainment, check out
His Girl Friday, Midnight in Paris, and Horror Remix
Horror Remix: Love at FilmBar, 815 North 2nd Street in Phoenix, starting at 6, 8, and 10 p.m. (though you can go earlier, the bar opens at 5 p.m.). Tickets to each are $8. More event details here.
4. Candy Fix @ Smeeks
Once work is over, pick up your Valentine on the way home and stop by Smeeks at UNION in the Biltmore to satisfy your chocolate and candy cravings. And don't miss the photobooth, which is open for couples (and singles) who stop by the store.
