For people who will be spending Valentine’s Day in San Francisco with that special someone or while flying solo, there are tons of great options to help celebrate the holiday. In addition to all of the regular things to do in San Francisco, the mid-February holiday brings a lot of special events and attractions to the City by the Bay. Here’s a look at a few:
For people who aren’t into lovey-dovey things to do in San Francisco on Valentine’s Day, the Pillow Fight at JustinHermanPlaza is definitely worth checking out. Running from 5:45 pm to 9:00 pm, the Pillow Fight will give participants the chance to (softly) knock the stuffing out of each other…but you have to bring your own pillow. Even though Valentine’s Day might seem like an odd choice for a massive pillow fight, event organizers have an explanation: “Be there or be on a date with your significant other, just don’t sit at home and cry with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s because you could be HERE HAVING FUN!”
Couples, singles and everyone in between will enjoy a Valentine’s night out of dancing at the W San Francisco. The first 75 ladies who arrive at the party will receive a rose and everyone who attends will get to hear a special set by DJs Aykut and Dr. T with drums to be provided by Ammo.
If you need to do something with your children so that you can focus your full attention on your Valentine’s Day sweetheart, the San Francisco Family Attractions package will save your money on admission to the California Academy of Sciences or Bay Cruise in addition to a number of other attractions.
If dinner and a (rocking) show is more your speed, then check out Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers at Biscuits & Blues at either 7:30 or 10:00. Smith and her seven-piece backing band will heat things up with the retro-swing sound that they have been cultivating since 1989. Recognized as “The Queen Of Classic Jazz & Blues,” Smith and her group proudly play the music of artists like Count Basie, Lester Young, Walter Brown and Big Joe Turner. Chow down on delicious menu items like Crawfish Etouffee, Cajun Catfish, Gumbo, Shrimp & Grits and Southern-Fried Chicken while you watch the Red Hot Skillet Lickers do their thing.
Two other things that you could do in San Francisco on Valentine’s Day evening are going to the Big, Buttery Sketch Show or taking in a production of How We First Met. Both comedy shows will have you laughing long into the night – the perfect way to cap off Valentine’s Day 2014.
