Valentine’s Day may fall on a weekday this year, but the greater Fayetteville area is celebrating early with romantic happenings, tasty dining options, comedic entertainment, and more over the weekend. Whether you are wanting to surprise your significant other with a special outing or just escape the Valentine’s craze with friends, consider these fantastic options as you make your weekend plans:

Wine Tasting + Comedy Show – Friday, February 10
Start your Friday night with a Valentine Wine Tasting & Dessert Pairing at The Wine Café. Live jazz, courtesy of the Paul Saunders Jazz Trio +/-, will set the café’s mood just perfectly. Then head to the Crown Theatre for a comedy show featuring Nephew Tommy & Friends. Thomas Miles is a stand-up comedian well known for his role as co-host of the Steve Harvey Morning Show, and he will be joined by a star-studded line-up of five comedic performers.

Brunch + Carriage Ride – Saturday, February 11
Take your sweetie out for a decadent Brunch at Circa 1800 and order the unlimited Sweetheart Sangria for a truly indulgent experience. Afterward, take a walk up to the Downtown Alliance and surprise your date with a Valentine’s Carriage Ride through the streets of downtown Fayetteville. Make sure you call to reserve your spot in advance, as these romantic carriage rides sell out quickly.

Hockey Game + Dueling Piano Show – Saturday, February 11
Gather some unattached friends for “Singles Night” at the Fayetteville FireAntz vs. Columbus Cottonmouths game in the Crown Coliseum. Then, while the night’s still young, head over to ScrubOaks Contemporary American Pub for some drinks, late-night grub and the 2 Bald Guys Dueling Piano Show. You will be treated to a hilarious performance that is part sing-a-long concert and part comedy show.

Concert + Java – Sunday, February 12
Grab tickets to the Newsboys: Love Riot Tour concert at the Crown Theatre. This Grammy-nominated band is also treating Christian music fans to the theatrical experience of “God’s Not Dead LIVE! Rivals,” involving dancers, actors, and singers. Finish the night off with a warm beverage or creamy gelato at The Coffee Scene, where local and regional artists will be sharing their poetic works for Java Expressions.

Plenty of other events are going on all over Cumberland County this weekend, and information on those happenings may be found on the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Calendar of Events.
