Valentine’s Day ideas for the most diehard Spartans

Valentine’s Day means ripping off all your clothes and dying of frostbite together

It’s that time of the year again.

Whether you celebrate Valentine’s day, Galentine’s day or Singles Awareness day, the time has come to plan the perfect way to spend an evening with (or without) someone special in your life. If you’re the type of person who is prone to procrastination, laziness or just plain bad decision making, this is likely not the greatest news you’ve heard all day – The Tab is here with some ideas to make your special day in February perfect.

Admittedly, some of these work best for those in relationships… but hey, we won’t judge. Without further ado, try one of our A+ V-Day suggestions for a good time tonight, guaranteed.*

Capture a wild squirrel to earn the favor of your date

Who says romance is dead? Nothing says “I love you” like waiting outside for hours, holding perfectly still with your five-foot squirrel net. Arguably the easiest way to a woman’s (or man’s) heart.

Show up to your date wearing Sparty’s head…and nothing else

Beautiful morning at Spanish Bay!

When Sparty is involved, we all know that *at best* you are your partner’s second choice. But since we all can’t be Sparty, the least we could do for our partners is to bring a little bit of that trademark Sparty sexiness into our next date.

Oh, and don’t worry. Being naked isn’t against campus rules as long as you’re wearing the Sparty head.

Eat some snow because you might as well

Its easy, it’s fun and it’s free. And unlike every other source of food in East Lansing, it’s not in danger of closing down.

Nothing says “romance” like sticking fingers in holes while handling balls – and if that doesn’t spice up your date enough, you can ask the staff to turn on the disco ball to really get things poppin’.

So there you have it. If you can’t find an idea that works for you in this list, do you even go to MSU…?

As for the rest of you, may your special day be filled with plenty of squirrels, ball handling and chocolate.
