Even in the event that your phone no longer displayed the date and all your calendars and agendas disappeared, there’s no way you could forget it was February. The stores won’t let you. Decked out in red, pink, and white, your favourite shops do their beset to remind you that Valentine’s Day is on its way.
Now that the countdown to the love holiday is officially on, you may be wondering how you can spoil your special someone. Lovebirds all over the country are making reservations, pre-ordering flowers, and shopping for jewellery. But don’t worry if these stereotypical date ideas don’t make you feel butterflies in your stomach. The crew at Absolute Destruction & Recycling understands you might want to do something as special as your relationship. That’s why we’ve put together a list of fun Valentine’s Day alternatives for those romantics (and singles) looking to do something a little different this year.
Hooking Up: Second Base, a Second City production
Take your date to a show performed by the hilarious comedians at Second City. Hooking Up: Second Base is a fast-paced sketch comedy show that explores the highs and lows of dating in the 21st century. In just 90-minutes, they tell “their favourite tales of Tinder troubles, long-lost lovers, and all the sickening bliss that comes with new relationships.”
The show runs from February 12–18 at varying times in the afternoons and evenings. Tickets are $26 and are available to buy from the Second City website.
Valentine’s Day Couples Cooking Class at The Chef Upstairs
If you can stand the heat, get into the kitchen with one of the talented instructors at The Chef Upstairs. They’ll teach you and your partner how to make a romantic Italian 4-course meal that includes spaghetti alla carbonara and pan-seared halibut.
You’ve heard the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Now you can put this saying to the test with this decadent culinary experience. The Chef Upstairs only accommodates seven couples in one class to ensure each apprentice cook gets personal help from the chef, so make sure you book your attendance soon.
Tinder Tales Presents Cupidity
If a personal cooking class with a trained chef is too romantic for your blood, the Valentine’s Day themed Tinder Tales is just the punch of comedy your date plans need. Comedians and storytellers share their worst experiences using OKCupid and other dating services to find their true love, guaranteeing a hilarious night with your beau.
Even if your relationship status is single, you’ll laugh (and cry) over these stories of love and love lost. And if you’re one of the many people who Cupid gave up on, Tinder Tales is happy to hear from you. You can share your own romantic tales of woe by sending an email to their team.
Tickets are available online or at the door, but considering the popularity of previous Tinder Tales’ events, you should snag your tickets early.
Anti-Valentine’s Day Party
If you’re rebounding from your most recent breakup, consider checking out Toronto’s largest singles anti-valentine’s day party. Hosted by the Stirling Room, it’s where some of the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes go when they’re single and ready to mingle. You might just find someone you really hit it off with — which means you can finally bury the hatchet with the old flame.
Get in touch with us if you’re ready to move on. Our crews may help businesses around the GTA to dispose of their documents securely, but that’s not the only thing we do. With a dedicated environmental program, Absolute Destruction recycles all materials — including old love notes and Valentine’s Day cards. You can learn about our recycling program by checking out our environmental savings page on our website.
Before we send anything to our secure recycling facility, the material must first undergo our shredding process. Trust us when we say this is one of the most satisfying methods of disposal when it comes to any pictures of your ex or the love notes that they sent. Mend your broken heart with the help of a good shredding by calling us for a one-time purge before the 14th.
But don’t sweat it if you miss the big day. As your local document destruction company, we’re available any time of the year to help you with all your shredding and recycling plans. All you have to do is call or get in touch online to schedule your first pick-up. Until then, the crew at Absolute Destruction wishes you and yours a happy Valentine’s Day — however you celebrate it.
