We’ve spent most of last year in some form of isolation, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to NYE. Now that Valentine’s Day is upon us, we’re itching to get out. A date night is sorely needed. It’s been a year, the vaccine is finally out, many bars and restaurants are opening up for dining.
You may or may not feel safe being out in a crowd right now, even in a socially distanced way, so we’ve rounded up events for you to have a memorable celebration whichever way you choose to spend it.
Whether you are single, celebrating Galentine’s, or going out as a couple, with these events, you will find something offbeat to make Valentine’s Day extra special this year.
