Valentine's Day is coming up quick and if you're anything like us, you probably don't have a plan yet. Luckily, TELUS Spark in Calgary is making sure you have the time of your life at their upcoming Spark After Dark Valentine’s Day event happening on Thursday, February 13, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. This event is both delightful and wild. Whether you’re looking to get your nerd on or unleash your inner foodie, you’ll find what you need here.
For $95 per person, you and your S/O or Tinder match can enjoy an unforgettably weird and wonderful time.
Even if you’re single and looking for something to do, this could be a perfect adventure.
Spark After Dark’s special Valentine’s Day edition is set to feature some truly unique activities for the guests and you should probably be there.
At the event, you’ll have the opportunity to study animal remains in Body Worlds: Animals Inside Out, where you can check out animal bodies turned inside out through a neat technique called plastination.
If that doesn’t sound intriguing (and creepy) enough, you’ll also be able to dissect sheep hearts.
If a little heart-to-heart action doesn’t inspire romance, we don’t know what will.
Throughout the night, there will be live music and tons of drinks, which will be served in test tubes.
There will even be a display of adult toys, provided by Calgary’s own Little Shop of Pleasures.
You can also learn all about the history and uses for the sexy accessories and maybe even “get a tip or two about how they can spice up your love life,” as mentioned on TELUS Spark’s event page.
Narcity chatted with Jacqueline Tran, the Marketing and Communications Coordinator of TELUS Spark, who gave us the scoop on their most epic draw of the night.
“What makes it special is we are doing a dinner feature. It’s called the Lover’s Feast and it’s a buffet-style. There’s going to be plenty of foods inspired by aphrodisiacs, which means foods that get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day,” she told us.
There are plenty of fancy restaurants in Calgary that can provide a perfectly delicious meal for you and your significant other, but this one stands out from the rest, especially because it’s for one night only.
On top of it all, TELUS Spark has got an amazing guest to provide a dash of glamour to your evening.
Calgary-raised drag queen, Uropa will be meeting and entertaining the guests throughout the night.
Other activities include an immersive rainforest dome experience, lessons on animal mating rituals, anatomy sketching, and tons of photo ops.
Do yourself and your significant other a favour and don’t miss out on a one-of-a-kind date night.
