Light the candles, cosy up close, and celebrate an intimate date-night in Surrey City Centre, and to get things going, the team at Dominion Bar + Kitchen have created some drool-worthy dishes for dine-in or takeout. Featured on the Valentine’s menu is Surf & Turf, an 8oz sirloin steak paired with lemon-garlic prawns, truffle whipped potato, charred leeks, heirloom carrot, and creamy cognac peppercorn sauce.  Pair your meal with a delicious Passion Fruit Whisky Sour or a Chocolate Martini as a liquid dessert.

At-Home Date Night

Set a romantic scene at home with an “At-Home Date Night” bundle from Cavallo Winery. This box of goodies includes a bottle of Cavallo’s Ton of Brix, a highly drinkable red blend that is dominantly Merlot from Napa Valley equally blended with Petite Sirah and Zinfandel from Lake County, a “Sealed with a Kiss” Charcuterie box from Table & Vine Co, and a bundle of goodies from Casbah Day spa. Bundles are $150 and you can pre-order by February 11 and pick up from February 12 to 14 at the winery (19288 22 Avenue).

HappySad Theatre and Surrey Civic Theatres present a loving tribute, with a saucy kick, to Canadian icon, Stuart McLean of The Vinyl Cafe fame. This trio of gentle parodies follows “Dale” and “Marney” as they stumble into a new chapter in their bedroom. Never scandalous, always hilarious, 50 Shades of Vinyl is as much a heartfelt homage to an iconic Canadian storyteller as it is the erotic fan fiction you never knew you needed. Tickets are pay what you want, with $15 suggested and the show is available to stream from Friday, February 12 to Sunday February 28 2021.

Sunset Stroll

Is there anything more romantic than a walk at sunset? Surrey has some amazing places to go for a stroll with your love and watch the sun dip down below the horizon. Head to Crescent Beach with a blanket, some sweet treats and hot chocolate, find a bench or a log and snuggle up as you watch the sunset.
