Anti-Valentine’s Day: 6 things to do
Nowadays it is nearly impossible to escape Valentine’s Day. In the last weeks the city became the place of love and consumerism. And besides hearts, Teddy Bears and little angels with arrows, also Google reminds you that you’ll be lonely on February 14th.
Well, no! There are plenty of things to do in Málaga at Anti-Valentine’s Day, and some of them are better without a partner.
Treat yourself with a Spanish Course at OnSpain, Málaga, to be your own Valentine.
No more running away from lovey-dovey couples, Italian restaurants with human copies of ‘Lady and the Tramp’, shy people with branches of prepared flowers with no idea of the tastes and allergies of their partner, cinemas full of couples standing in line to see the latest film with Jennifer Aniston…
Today is also the day of the ones escaping all this, of the singles, of the ones who are happy to stay on their own, of people running away from the mainstream.
Today is Anti-Valentine’s Day!
Sport at Anti-Valentine’s Day
To celebrate our Anti-Valentine’s Day, let’s start with some sport activities.
1.Football. In the city centre there are different pubs which on February 14th are showing the match PSG vs Barcelona, live from 20:45, with people of all nationalities watching the same game. Don’t let anyone steal you this sacred moment of beer, tapas and friends watching a Champion’s match.
2.Hiking in Málaga. If you are a very active person, go hiking. You don’t know how and have no one to go with you? You don’t need it. In Climbat you have your indoor hiking facilities to practice on your own, with ropes or in free climbing. Challenge your abilities and forget everything else.
Culture at Anti-Valentine’s Day
If you like culture we suggest you an Anti Valentine’s itinerary in the City Centre, because Málaga is full of culture and, besides the activities at OnSpain, you can take advantage of a great programme of theatre, cinema and music to celebrate your anti Valentine’s day in Málaga.
3.Even if the cinemas are full of couples you can still go and watch a movie (anti-romantic if you want) also in the original version. The advantage: no one steals your popcorn or talks to you while you are focused on the film. An enchanting old cinema is Cine Albeniz together with the teatro romano which of course also is worth a visit.
4.Do you already know the 35 museums of Málaga? Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your own museum tour, you will surely enter without doing the line. Be inspired by Mark Ryden’s art at CAC Málaga.
5.Give the Micro Teatro de Málaga a chance and experience a theatre with halls of 15 square metres, and shows of 15 minutes for 15 people. A very original idea, and the plays are usually very good. Even if you don’t have a B2 level of Spanish you can enjoy the acting and the environment.
6.Why don’t you take part in a trivial in one of the Irish Pubs in Málaga? The majority of them celebrates its trivial evening every tuesday night. And this year this coincides with our “favourite” date. It consists in a question-answer contest for all the bar’s clients, in English and Spanish and there are prizes for winners (you can even win a bottle of Champagne!).
But if you are in a romantic mood…
Have a look at the Spanish courses of OnSpain School to learn how to speak the most romantic of the languages!
Anyway OnSpain School wishes you a very happy Valentine’s Day.
¡Qué viva el amor! (not only one day in the year) and love yourself first.
