Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, Columbus. And if you’re tired of dinner and a movie, we have just the thing for you: a full list of lovably-weird date ideas.

A great way to keep things fresh, or to impress a new date, this list will make sure this year is far from an ordinary Feb.14.

Carriage Rides

While carriage rides aren’t entirely off-brand for Valentine’s Day, they are a fun way to mix things up. Easton Town Center is bringing their popular carriage rides back between Feb. 11 and Feb. 14 this year.

Till Death do Us Part

Murder mystery event? For Valentine’s Day? Yes and Yes. Billed as an “immersive cocktail event”, Til Death do Us Part: A Valentine’s Day Murer Mystery will take place this year from Feb. 11 until Feb. 12 at The Jury Room Columbus, located at 22 E. Mound St.

Valentine’s Pet Photos

Who said your dog can’t be your Valentine this year? If that’s the case, Pet Supplies Plus in New Albany, located at 486 Morse Rd., will be hosting Freshman Photography to snap (romantic?) photos of you and your furry friend in-store.
