SATURDAY February 14
Need a last-minute valentine? Try your luck at the Silent Disco dance party, a featured event in the fourth annual Central Park Conservancy Ice Festival. Three DJ’s will simultaneously play Top 40 hits, Motown classics, and 80s tunes. You decide which genre to groove along to by choosing the corresponding station on your fluorescent headsets, which are color-coded depending on the type of music being listened to. Enjoy the best of both worlds by dancing to the beat of your own drums and joining the festivities. Add in the free mini-cupcakes by Sprinkles and the array of food trucks parked nearby, and you’ve got yourself a party. Central Park at Naumburg Bandshell, mid-park at 72nd St., 3-7 p.m., quietevents.com/event/central-park-conservancy-ice-festival/, free.
SUNDAY February 15
There’s no better way to set off the lovey-dovey mood of Valentine’s Day than with a visit to a haunted house. Blood Manor is the self-proclaimed to be the “most intense, creepy and ‘scream inducing’” haunted house in the Tri-State area. Lucky for you and your significant other, they’re hosting a Bloody Valentine’s Weekend. Red is the color of love, after all. From 7:30 p.m. to midnight, navigate your way through the manor (at your own risk) and come face to face with the scariest bunch in Manhattan. FYI, escape routes do exist in the form of emergency exits. Blood Manor, 163 Varick St., 7:30 p.m.-midnight, bloodmanor.com/faq.html, $30-$60.
