Valentine’s Day is next week!
If you haven’t made plans yet, there are lots of great, local options for celebrating this day of love. We did a little digging to find some events in the area, whether you’ll be looking for a date locale or just enjoying a little “me” time. Since Valentine’s Day falls during the work week, some of our events actually happen a couple of days after the official holiday. Don’t worry, you could always bring your sweetheart a traditional box of chocolates and surprise them with an I.O.U. for a great event on the upcoming weekend!
Read on to put a little love in your social schedule!
