Well, it’s that time again.
Nope, not another polar vortex. Worse…Valentine’s Day.
Whatever your situation is, these two words can easily instill panic. But never fear – BlogEMU has you covered.
For all you couples out there with no idea what to do, Campus Life is throwing their very first Dinner and a Movie night. For only $10 you and your date can dine on delicious Italian food, provided by EMU’s catering service. Dinner starts at 7:30 in the Student Center Ballroom and includes salad, pasta, bread, and dessert, with gluten-free options available. Every couple that attends will walk away with a free gift (it’s super secret, I couldn’t even get the deets). Following dinner, there will be a movie screening of – you guessed it – Valentine’s Day (2010). Everyone is welcome to come out for the movie – it’s free and starts at 9 pm in the Student Center Ballroom. So while you don’t need to purchase a dinner ticket to attend the movie, any ticket purchased for dinner will get you in the running for an extra special, super-comfy front row seat.
Jarrod Stober of Campus Life says that despite this being the first year, they’re still anticipating a decent turnout because it’s a great “opportunity for students to have a nice sit-down meal that is a little fancy at a low-cost rate.” Tickets are available on the Eventbrite website and can only be purchased for couples, so make sure you come hungry and bring a buddy! Hope to see all of you lovebirds (or spaghetti lovers) there!
Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you single students out there! A quick Google search will provide you with tons of opportunities around Ypsilanti to help you revel in your single-ness this Valentine’s Day. The Ypsilanti 20s and 30s Singles group on meetup.com is sponsoring an event on Valentine’s evening at Aubree’s Pizzeria and Grill in Depot Town. Come join them for some pizza, shuffleboard, pool, and (of course) lots of singles to mingle with! You can find all the details about this event HERE.
So Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! No matter what you do have fun, be safe, and don’t forget to spread some love every day.
