Creative Date Night Ideas in Houston to Try this Valentine’s Day

With so many things to do in Houston it can be difficult to figure out where to go on date night. Dinner and a movie can get boring after a while, a crowded bar isn’t the best place to have meaningful conversation, and it’s too cold right now to do picnics at the park. Where can you got for a nice date then?

The great thing about Painting with a Twist is that we offer a variety of classes, including couples painting classes. Our studios are also in some of the most popular areas of Houston, so before or after class you can stop by one of our neighboring  businesses to make the date even more memorable.

The Heights:

Down the street from our Heights location is Southern Goods, a delicious BBQ restaurant with craft beer and occasional live music. Also right next to our studio is Mt. Olive Gourmet Foods, where you can find falafels that you can take home and cook with your significant other after class. Either way you and your partner will go home with full stomach and new art!
