Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day in Vancouver 80s Style

It’s that time of year when love is in the air–Valentine’s Day. That day when many people exchange cards, candy, gifts, or flowers with their special Valentine, while others feel social pressure from all the newly engaged sharing their pictures on social media. Whether you love the idea of Valentine’s Day or think it is just another overpriced commercial holiday, one thing is for certain—it can be a very lonely holiday if you are single. However, it definitely doesn’t have to be lonely, and you don’t have to pretend like it’s any other day just to get through it, either!

Events & Adventures has got the cure for the Valentine’s Day blues. The best thing about Events & Adventures is you never have to feel alone. With over 30 events per month, you will always have something to do—even, and especially, on Valentine’s Day. This year for Valentine’s Day we are going back all the way back to the 80s for one night only with our annual Valentine’s Day Bash! If you love Footloose, Top Gun, The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, or Ghost Busters then this is one party you don’t want to miss. Events & Adventures staff and members will be pulling it all together to make the event like stepping out of a DeLorean and re-entering 1985.

This is How E&A Does Valentine’s Day in Vancouver

With 80s attire, tapas, a mac and cheese station, champagne upon arrival and a live DJ, this will be the Valentine’s Day bash to attend in Vancouver. Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about the love between two people but the love of a community of people, the pure enjoyment of new friends, new connections, and maybe even a new significant other. Events & Adventures has been hosting the Valentine’s Day events for almost 10 years, and we make sure all members leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Events & Adventures Seattle

Events & Adventures Seattle Welcomes 2017

It’s already been a week since the huge New Year’s Eve bash for Events & Adventures Seattle, and as the old expression goes, time sure flies when you’re having fun and our NYE party was definitely that!  We sailed into 2017 on our private Argosy Cruise Ship, the Goodtime III, where our members danced the night away, enjoyed catered cuisine, and sipped free champagne (and doesn’t it always taste better when it’s free?)!  Our cruise took us around Lake Washington, where we passed houseboats and a variety of other seafaring vessels all decked out in holiday cheer.  And because we were out on the lake, our unobstructed view of the Space Needle fireworks was amazing!

The Party is Just Getting Started for Events & Adventures Seattle!

Now that we’ve begun our journey into 2017, we are so excited for another wonderful year filled with new experiences and new adventures!  Already this year we’ve had members “shred the gnar” up on Mt. Stevens, sip wine while painting beautiful artwork, and enjoy a fun Sunday morning on a coffee-crawl!  While there are plenty of exciting events to come, we are especially excited for our next big party, which is already only a month away—our annual Valentine’s Day bash!

Members of Events & Adventures Seattle are looking forward to their very own private club, equipped with DJ, dancing, an amazing light show, and stellar drink options.  In the spirit of promoting “being adventurous!” we will have a mystery drink list, printed on strips of paper which will be drawn from inside a giant mason jar.  Should you be daring enough to try a mysterious adult beverage, you slip the paper to the bartender, who will then concoct the mystery drink and dazzle your taste buds!  For an added element of fun, we request that all attendees will wear white, as well!  This will enhance the psychedelic light show that will be projected and promote a sense of unity and fun.

If you’re an Events & Adventures member but haven’t already checked out our upcoming Seattle events, be sure to do so soon and snag a seat while you can!  And if you’re not, there’s no better time to join Events & Adventures, just in time for our upcoming Valentine’s Day party.  We can’t wait to see you there!

Spend Your Whole Week Meeting New Friends

This week we broke away from the ordinary and spent our free time with an amazing group of new friends. While Valentine’s Day is usually miserable for singles, Events & Adventures members spent the day laughing at Rooster T. Feather’s, a local comedy club, because laughter is infinitely sexier than spending Valentine’s Day alone. After that we left our stress (and a lot of our common sense) on the curb as we watched Zoolander 2 from the comfort of recliners at a luxury movie theatre—the day was spent in the company of good people with lots of great conversation.

But that was just the beginning of our week; our adventures included a rousing evening of sand volleyball with a huge crowd of members, and volunteering at Second Harvest Food bank. We also went bowling, and enjoyed meeting new people while having some great drinks. We ended our week on Saturday with a challenging hike through the Saratoga Mountains and ending it by filing into a party bus for some bar hopping. But this isn’t anything out of the ordinary here at Events & Adventures, just another busy week filled with interesting places and meeting great people.
