Love is in the air, which means Royal Executive Transportation is on the road. Austinites are penciling in Valentine’s Day plans and lining up reservations right this moment, but if you haven’t decided how you want to celebrate here are a few ideas depending on who you plan to spend the holiday with.
For couples that have been together for a while, Valentine’s Day is a time to show your significant other how much you appreciate their companionship. Whether you’re tantalizing your taste buds or trying something new, it’s all about relaxing and letting the worries of the week slip away so you can enjoy each other’s company.
Dinner and a Movie – It’s an oldie, but a goodie, just like your relationship. And with an amazing venue like Alamo Drafthouse, any excuse to catch a flick is warranted. You can order something from their menu, but if you want to do dinner beforehand we suggest trying the special menu at TRIO, Cipollina or Max’s Wine Dive.
Bob Schneider and the Moonlight Orchestra ft. the Tosca Strings – The Moody Theater is once again welcoming Bob Schneider to croon to the crowd. A handful of other talented musicians will join him on the stage for a Valentine’s evening spectacular, including Sarah Jaffe, Charlie Mars, Matthew Mayfield, Max Frost and Lex Land.

Just Made It Official Couples
If you just made your relationship exclusive, or even tied the knot, don’t be afraid to go overboard on the romanticism. In the honeymoon phase of the relationship you’re allowed to go all out, especially if it’s your first Valentine’s Day as a couple.

Girls’ Night Out
This year, why not have a Galentine’s to celebrate the great relationships you have with your girlfriends? Get to together and gab about guys instead of trying to impress them.
Grab a Mani/Pedi During Happy Hour – Organize a mani/pedi event complete with champagne and strawberries to start your weekend off by showing yourself some love. Just don’t forget to call well in advance so there’s enough room for everyone in the group.
Austin Roller Disco of Love – Remember the good ol’ days before you worried about boys? When you just wanted to have fun with the girls? Go out and have a blast skating around with your friends at the 4th annual Roller Disco of Love. It’s a late night event, so grab a V-Day dinner before heading to the roller rink.
Transportation Match Made in Heaven: A luxury SUV or limousine provides an out-of-the-ordinary, fun way to travel around with the girls.
Anti-Valentine’s Day Events
Not a fan of Valentine’s? Think it’s just one of those Hallmark holidays? Here are a few ideas for Valentine’s weekend activities that are decidedly not romantic.
Cupid’s Undie Run – On Saturday the 15th, join hundreds of Austinites in a nearly-nude run that benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Charity work always warms the heart.
Share in Other’s Misery – The Mortified Austin: Doomed Valentine’s Show is a unique blend of therapy meets public speaking, and the results are amazing for viewers. The traveling stage show is hitting Spider House for an unromantic display of unrequited love and embarrassing crushes as people share their most cringe-worthy love letters, lyrics, poems and artwork.
