February 14th is creeping nearer, and we all know what that means. Flowers, candy, cards and gifts will rain down on couples and special “someones” everywhere in celebration of arguably the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day. If you’ve already made your plans, we applaud you, but if you’re still searching for the perfect V-Day date in Greater Raleigh, we’re here to help!

For a date a little outside of the box, consider seeing the My Funny Valentine Comedy Jam at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Comedians Bruce Bruce, Tony Rock, Arnez J and Gary Owen will be delivering laughs on Feb. 11th, but why not start the romance and fun a little early?

If you’d like to wine and dine your significant other, you’ll love Valentine’s Evening at Prime Smokehouse in Garner. The velvet-voiced Henry Lovett and the sultry Gina Revae will entertain you while you dine on a lavish three-course meal, two of which will be paired with wine. As if this wasn’t already romantic, there will also be long-stemmed roses and chocolate for the ladies.
