Even though it’s cold, it doesn’t mean you have to stay in the house and Netflix and Chill all the time. In addition to the normal chocolate and flowers, consider taking your special someone out for a day or evening on the town. When planning something special for you and your hunny for Valentines Day try not to think of the cold or let that hinder you from thinking of a good date! While staying in is definitely always an option, don’t let it be your first and last thought. Here are some fun things to do around town!
Watch the sun set as you skate around the park! There is nothing more beautiful than downtown Chicago in the evening. The park houses a few places to grab a bite to eat or a drink. There are many places within walking distance as well, if you work up an appetite from all that skating!
Catch a movie at the ICON theatre. They offer a full service bar, and a decent food menu that goes beyond the regular movie popcorn. You may take your food and drinks into the theatre. There is even a strip mall surrounding the theatre that you can do a little shopping before or after the show!
Chicago Botanical Garden will be hosting the 2018 Orchid Show! They will feature numerous types and colors orchid flowers in addition to their normal selection of beautiful flowers. The Orchid Show starts on February 10 and is running through March 25, 2018, if you don’t make it for Valentines day you have plenty of time to catch it before it leaves.
Bottle and Bottega is an awesome place to bring out your artistic abilities. Grab a few bottles of wine, and head over their art studio. In a very intimate setting, an instructor will guide you through the process of creating your own masterpiece that you can take home for bragging rights!
If your bae is a sports fan, the Bulls game may be the way to go. Make your way to the United Center for an evening of fun, snacks, and basketball! Maybe you will even make it on the Kiss Cam!
