Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, but late nights out on the town are currently not on anyone’s agenda anyway. There are ways to get out of the house to celebrate with outdoor dining but you can also bring the romantic night IN this year. Celebrate love and support small businesses in Oregon’s Tualatin Valley this Valentine’s Day.
