It just hit you: You don’t have Valentine’s Day plans for your sweet someone and every restaurant in town is booked.
But what if you gave your Valentine an experience that’s a little more fun, and a little less fungible?
Because McDonald’s and Panera haven’t opened their restaurants in the metaverse yet, here are some virtual restaurants that just might have V-Day openings. Warning: Be prepared to drop some major ether.
1. Bored Ape Yacht Club yacht club
Your boo will go apesh*t over this one. The menu is entirely banana-based, but let’s be honest, boat food is better when you don’t actually have to eat it.
Valentine’s Day dinner special: Four-course meal of Paris Hilton and Jimmy Fallon’s leftovers.
2. Web3 Café
You don’t have to be an expert to dine here, just someone who likes to hear themselves talk. You’ll also be required to use the word “revolutionary” at least three times an hour. The aesthetic is cool and the vibes are fun, but don’t think too hard about how you got there.
Valentine’s Day dinner special: Thought juice for two (like a green juice for your subconscious.)
3. CryptoPunk Steakhouse
This place serves steaks that were first cooked in 2017 and distributed for free. Now, each steak (depending on what hat it’s wearing) could run you a couple mil. It’s a great place to bring a date who has more of a vintage taste.
Valentine’s Day dinner special: 50% off steaks that are smoking pipes.
4. Pixelated SoHo House
Have you always wanted to impress a date with your exclusive members’ club, but thought, “It’s too easy to see inside of SoHo House!” This is the solution.
Valentine’s Day dinner special: $7,000 shrimp cocktail for two, but members get 20% off if you dine after 3:00am. Plus, Pixelated SoHo House will disable your screenshot function because remember, no photos allowed.
5. Zuckerberg’s lap
We’re not going to sugarcoat it: This isn’t a good place to be. But if you’re craving the real metaverse experience, there’s no better place to take your sweetheart than the belly of the beast.
Valentine’s Day dinner special: Three hours of Zuckerberg whispering in your ear about his future plans for Meta.
