They say that if you truly love someone, then every day is Valentine’s Day. We beg to differ, because, frankly, it’s not every day that you can attend romance-fueled events and take advantage of lovely deals. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up a few romantic ways that you can spend Qixi, otherwise known as Chinese Valentine’s Day.
Bandidos is offering a pretty epic feast for Chinese Valentine’s Day, which includes a starter (seafood soup or shrimp ceviche), four tacos (beef, chicken, fish or pork), two main courses (wet burrito, chorizo burrito, enchiladas, Juarez burrito) and churros for a delicious finish. If tasty Mexican food doesn’t say ‘I love you,’ then we don’t know what does. Be sure to call ahead to make a reservation.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about couples! Get out there and meet someone new at the Happy Monk on Xingsheng Lu where they’ll be hosting a speed dating event that includes free flow drinks and complimentary snacks.
