What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day this year? Whether you’ll be spending it with a special someone or with friends, we’ve got a plan for the best way to spend the night without leaving the neighborhood.
Valentine’s Date Ideas In NoMa
To kick off your Valentine’s celebration, we recommend starting the night off with happy hour on the heated pavilion at Wundergarten, NoMa’s very own beer garden. Choose from a variety of beers, ciders and wines while you enjoy a little friendly competition over a game of corn hole, or just sit back and enjoy the magic of the twinkling lights for a little while. Show up between 4 pm and 7 pm to catch the happy hour deals.
Once you’ve had your fill at the beer garden, mosey on over to Union Market. Here you’ll be able to enjoy the Chocotenango specialty chocolate pop-up (open until 8pm) and/or the “We Heart Cheese: Chocolate, Cheese & Baller Bubbly” tasting class (must book your tickets in advance), because the only thing more romantic that chocolate and champagne is adding cheese into the mix!
Before you leave the Union Market area, don’t forget to check out one of DC’s most instagrammable spots, the hearts mural created by LA-based graffiti artist Mr. Brainwash. We can’t think of a better spot for a Valentine’s Day selfie (ussie?), can you?
To cap off a lovely evening, stroll back home to 2M, then make a quick trip up to the rooftop to say goodnight to this beautiful city of ours. It may be a little chilly, but who doesn’t love an excuse to snuggle up?
