We’re totally amped that Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year. Finally, we can enjoy the holiday without worrying about that early work meeting or the inbox full of emails that need answering. If you’re planning a romantic date with your boo, consider skipping the same old dinner date, and check out these 10 creative Valentine’s Day dates instead.

4. Playin’ Games: Take the afternoon to bring out your competitive side and hit the arcade together. Amp up the stakes by establishing prizes, like whoever wins the most games buys the drinks afterward. (via Artfully Wed)
8. Stand-Up Comedy: Laughing together is definitely one of life’s greatest joys. Get your giggles on by attending a stand-up comedy show. (Photo via Bryan Bedder/Getty)
