2. An indoor picnic


Local company AndSoForth, which organises larger-than-life dinner parties, is back with a laid-back installment that’s never been seen in Singapore. Its latest production, The Picnic, promises you the perfect picnic without the sticky humidity and assaulting insects.

3. A family-style Valentine brunch


Chef Lino Sauro from Gattopardo Ristorante di mare has unveiled two exciting Valentine’s Day experiences for lovebirds this year. As a father of two kids, he is well aware that Valentine’s Day is not always the easiest day to celebrate for those with tiny tots in tow.

For those with family commitments, a family-style Valentine Sunday Brunch has been introduced. It offers an affordable, communal experience so that couples with kids need not miss out on celebrating the romantic occasion.

To see

1. What goes on during a night at the museum

Ever wonder what would really happen during a night at the National Museum? Stray into the Treasures of the World exhibition after dark and you might just meet Afonso, a curious Portuguese sailor who journeyed with Vasco da Gama in 1503 in search for the greatest treasure in the world.

During this play, you must be standing or moving in order to join Afonso’s quest and help him in his great treasure hunt.

2. A ‘romantic’ blockbuster before everyone else

Are you a fan of Deadpool? Here’s your opportunity to catch Marvel’s infamous anti-hero in action before everyone else, with plenty of add-ons to boot.

Along with a pair of tickets, you’ll receive one large Popcorn Combo (1 large popcorn and 2 regular sized soft drinks), one jar of Gourmet Matcha Cookies and one handmade four-piece soap collection (consisting of two 3D teddy bear soap pieces and 2 heart-shaped soap pieces). Now that’s a killer Valentine’s date.

3. An exciting beer pong challenge

Keep your eyes peeled at Squires & Scoundrel’s Beer Pong Challenge, where individuals and teams of two compete in a championship. The kitchen and bar remain open, so support your mates and have a chill time with gourmet burgers and craft beers.

You can, of course, also sign up to compete. After all, you can stand to win a 4D3N stay for two in Maldives!

To do

1. Attend a couple’s gardening workshop

Have a unique Valentine’s Day where both of you can pick up a new skill together! Learn how to create a miniature garden in this workshop, which is specially designed for couples.

You will learn the basics of garden design and plant selection, and get tips on how to select suitable plants and ornaments for miniature creation. The skills acquired for miniaturised settings can be applied to real-life garden landscaping.

2. Fly solo

It might be the weekend of love, but the singles can have their fun too! Spend your Sunday flying solo on the sand with your best mates at Tanjong Beach Club’s No Strings Attached, where you can shimmy to the poolside beats of DJ Tyler Made, get down with giant twister and more.

Or enjoy a free-flow anti-Valentine’s feast at Dehesa’s first Valentine Rebellion street party. Chef JP’s trademark whole roast pig (roasted for six hours) is served alongside ice cold Estrella beer, wines and freshly-made churros galore.

More information on No Strings Attached here and Dehesa’s Valentine Rebellion here.

3. Enter No Man’s Land

Meet the man in black at the bar. Room 426 he says, pressing the hotel keys into your hand. When you get there, you are taken to a truck in the back alley. Your journey has just begun. But this isn’t your story – this is Joo Chiat in the embrace of Katong, a history and geography stolen.

Upon entering No Man’s Land, you may be subject to enclosed spaces, loud noises, darkness, abnormal temperatures and other challenging conditions. You may be asked to confront sensitive themes and people with whom you might never otherwise interact. Are you game?
