Make Bothell your Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or Day of Self Love destination! Whether you’re looking to “wow” your date with special dinner reservations or keep it simple with a laid back evening, choose Bothell and make a weekend out of it. After all, Valentine’s day falls on a Friday–the Friday of President’s Day weekend no less! Mark your calendars, book your stay and consider our list of things to do in Bothell on V-day, from fancy to free and everything in between.

Things to Do

Looking to impress? Consider these options.

Seafood Boil

If you’re looking for an informal party feast, attend McMenamins Anderson School Valentine's Seafood Boil event where singles and couples unite to enjoy heaps of fresh seafood – crab, clams, prawns, mullets, red potatoes and corn on the cob doused and tossed in butter and thrown onto a large table for communal sharing. Prepare to roll up your sleeves, get a little messy and meet some fun folks. Get your tickets before they sell out.

Fancy Feast

If you’re feeling a more upscale and intimate evening, consider Russells' Valentine’s Day Winemaker Dinner with Barrage Cellars. It’s guaranteed to be a fun, romantic evening featuring a five-course dinner, paired with Barrage Cellars Wine. Grab your tickets before they sell out. Want a fancy dinner without a ticket? Consider Grazie for casual, contemporary Italian with live music and featuring a special Valentine’s menu. Call ahead and place reservations to secure your spot!

Hands-On Cooking Experience

Unleash your inner chef at Lauren Ashton Cellars Valentine’s Day Cooking Workshop. At this hands-on workshop, learn how to prepare nutritious and delicious appetizers and desserts that are easy to make and always a crowd-pleaser. All of the recipes will be raw, vegan and gluten-free. Space is limited to 20 guests, so register soon to reserve your seats. Tickets are $45 person, with wine included.

Visit Woodinville Wine Country

Take a short drive to Woodinville to sip on some of the finest wine in the PNW. It’s the perfect destination for a date night, as well as a girls night out (GNO). Check out our list of wineries to choose from to help you in your search. From our list, we recommend Matthews Winery for Valentine’s Day. There will be live music from Jet City Band, a pop/rock cover band, and authentic Mexican dishes from Qurious Tedious. There’s no cover fee and wines are sold by the glass and bottle. Enjoy a monster burrito with a glass of wine in hand.

Plan on keeping it simple? Consider these options.

The Park at Bothell Landing

Stroll through the park, plan a picnic or stop in the gazebo when visiting one of Bothell’s most iconic spots, the Park at Bothell Landing. Grab some wine and cheese or craft his or her favorite meal from scratch! This option will offer beautiful views, a rich sense of history and a special touch of personalization for your Valentine. After spending time outdoors, warm up with a cup of coffee at Cafe Ladro or Social Grounds.

Meander Main Street

Keep it low-key and spend the day meandering Main Street. Start the morning at The Den Coffee Shop, then cruise up and down Main Street stopping into shops like Sankara Imports for treasures found in India, Nepal and Turkey. Afterward, grab lunch or a mid-afternoon glass of wine from Revolve Food and Wine Bar and finish the day with something sweet from Hillcrest Bakery.

Explore Breweries

Looking for something low-key? Visit Bothell breweries for craft beer and delicious eats. On Friday, visit the Hop and Hound to enjoy craft beer in their beer garden and chow down on mouth-watering burgers from Macho Burger’s food truck, open from 5 to 8 PM. If you’re here for the long weekend, visit Foggy Noggin, a quaint microbrewery specializing in English style ales, on Saturday. If you seek to further your beer conquest, visit Woodinville’s Dirty Bucket Brewing, 20 Corners Brewing and Triplehorn Brewery for even more stellar options.

Partner Yoga at Leela Yoga Studio (Feb. 15) and Thai Massage Workshop (Feb. 16)

When visiting Bothell this weekend, relax and unwind with a partner yoga session or a Thai massage. On February 15th, Leela Yoga Studio is hosting a Valentine’s Day Partner Yoga Workshop.
