February 2020

From traditional to romantic to creative, celebrate the day of love your own way with these great options

1. Celebrate with Your Girls

Galentine’s Day

Love isn’t always romantic, so celebrate with your best friends! Take a page from the Leslie Knope playbook and party with your girls at Tin Roof. Wine and champagne will be half off and ladies will enjoy a free Jello shot and the music of DJ Ricky Spinz. Get the event details here.

2. Tie the Knot!

A Sweet Deal on Valentine’s Day

Looking to tie the knot without the stress of a big day? Consider the Kaminski House Museum’s Valentine’s Day deal. You’ll say “I do” in a beautiful historic location and pose for photos on the lawn. Add an officiant, boutonniere, bouquet, chocolate and champagne for an additional charge to make the day even more memorable! Get the details here.
