No Date for Valentine’s Day? No Problem! 

Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to show your sweetheart just what they mean to you with a romantic dinner, chocolates and flowers, or even a home-cooked meal in your Royal Athena apartment. But what if you’re going stag this year? You don’t have to wallow with ice cream and Netflix—you can enjoy the spirit of the holiday by showing your closest friends some love with a night out on the town right near home.

BYOB art classes are all the rage, and this fad has hit our neck of the woods as well! Sippin’ Pics is a full-service arts studio located about 1.5 miles from your Royal Athena apartment. No experience is necessary, and the venue provides all the materials you need. All you have to do is grab your favorite bottle, gather your friends and show up—and let the creative juices flow!

Celebrate Valentine’s Day a day late at Sippin’ Pics, which hosts afternoon and evening painting parties every Saturday (or, if you really want to get out and about Friday night, reserve the studio for your very own private party!). The studio selects an image that painters will work on (expect some V-Day themes that weekend!) and sets each aspiring artist up with a canvas. The experienced art teacher will walk the class through the method for bringing the picture to life, and then it’s up to each painter to put their own spin on their work.

As you paint, sip from your beverage of choice, while also enjoying complimentary cocktails and light refreshments provided by the studio. Painting parties are a great way to socialize with your friends all while exploring your creative side—and since it’s just a few minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, you don’t have to travel far to enjoy a night out with your girls (or guys!).

So grab your crew and get creative because there’s plenty to love about Valentine’s Day this year!
