Valentine's Day Events & Ideas


With V-Day just around the corner, I thought that I would spread the love by sharing some great events and ideas that you can do with your loved one. Don't worry.....for those who are single I have some advice for you too!

For The Love Birds

Dinner: If you can endure the long waits and crowd then a romantic dinner is always the more simplest of choices. If on a budget, then Red Lobster's Three Course Meal for Two for $29.99 is your best bet! However, if you have a little more money to splurge you can always dine at Pappadeaux and order a dozen of oysters. They are a great aphrodisiac!


Events: Word on the street is Mariah Carey will be in town on February 13th & 14th. I really should not give her concert more attention seeing as though we have gotten an "Mariah is unavailable" email when we inquired about interviewing her. I figured that since this blog is for the romantics, I would not focus on that her and make this more about you. If you want to see Mariah, I hope you have already reserved your tickets.

If you are not interested in seeing someone sing like that are moaning then you can check out Ginuwine, Omarion, and Bobby V at the Congress Theatre today! These gentlemen will be coming together to put on a special Valentines Day concert for the ladies.

Movies: In the spirit of Valentines Day the creators of Pretty Woman have released a movie titled Valentine's Day which includes an all-star line up of; Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Eric Dane, Julia Roberts, Queen Latifah....THE WORKS. On a side note, check out our interview with Queen Latifah and the trailer to the movie.




For The Singles

Dinner: According to Metromix you should "Gather your girls and hit the bar at Meze (located in the West Loop) tapas lounge for Spellbound Friday, which features sample glasses of the California winery's vinos to kick off Valentine's Day weekend. Stick around to trot the globe by way of internationally inspired tapas ($5-$8) such as house-cured salmon with rosemary cream, feta-topped pomme frites, ginger prawns and Thai rolls. 9-11 p.m. Fri".

Events: Ladies! If you are in the market to meet a new man then Brody Jenner will be in town on February 13th at Bull & Bear.


Treat Yourself: There is nothing like a great message to relax your mind, body, and spirit; use this weekend to reduce your stress. A day at the spa or a dip in the gym's jacuzzi can be just the cure.




I hope these events and ideas are useful for you this weekend. However, whatever you choose to do please make sure that you have a wonderful Valentines Day!!!!
