Coquette Cocktails To Go

Send you and la petite amito Paris (metaphorically) with these Euro-inspired to-go cocktails from Coquette Brasserie, paired with one of the resto’s famous quiches. Choose from four cocktail ops (sold in the cutest little bottles)–just in time for cheersing your Valentine on Valentine’s. P.S. Bring the glass containers back to get $2 off your next to-go cocktail purchase!

Pints of Love Virtual Valentine’s Craft Beer Experience

This virtual craft beer fest celebrating the craft beer communities of both North Carolina and New York runs all weekend long. A $15 online registration gets you unlimited access to festival content and performances. Or, upgrade to VIP status to score the ultimate Valentine’s Day weekend package, including a 12-pack of NC craft beer, a box of locally made chocolates and a customized festival beer glass.

XOXO Alamo

Let us upgrade ya. Elevate date night by bringing the Alamo Drafthouse experience home for the perfect Valentine’s—think dinner and a movie, plus a bottle of wine, two commemorative Champagne glasses and a movie poster puzzle to boot. And if you’d rather go out—consider renting a private theater for you Valentine, galentines and your palentines!

Stanbury’s Cajun-Inspired Takeout

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler! Let the good times roll, indeed, with Stanbury’s Mardi Gras-themed Cajun-inspired takeout (Sunday through Tuesday, Feb. 14–16). Preorder your pick for the perfect upscale-comfort food combination feast that we promise your boo will be eager to thank you for.

Rialto Theater’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s Showing 

“It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.” Take in a matinee of the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s ($5 per ticket) at Raleigh’s famed Rialto over some Champs (or beer, wine, cider—whatever speaks to you)—and, afterward, extend the date at one of Five Points’ cherished restaurants for dinner.

Oakwood Pizza Box

For a more casual (but supremely delish) night in, order takeout or delivery from Oakwood Pizza Box, arguably the best (and biggest) pizza in town. Pizzas up to 18 inches pizzas will easily satisfy your appetite. And don’t forget to add the bottle of wine or brews.
