Top Alternative Valentine Day Activities
Dinner date? That’s been done.
Skip the predictable table-for-two this Valentine’s Day. Do something awesome (and active!) instead.
Run around with no clothes on.
Race in your underwear to benefit charity? It’s a real thing. And it’s awesome. Sign up for Cupid’s Undie Run here.
Get sexy on skates.
Attend a Valentine’s Day concert.
Here’s an awesome concert round-up from Chicago Magazine with everything from sexy slow jams to fancy fiddlin’.
See hilarious improv comedy.
Chicago is world-renowned for it’s improv. Plus, laughter is a great ab workout. In fact, the muscle contractions of each “hah!” release endorphins – making you feel happier and sexier. Our pick: “Cupid in Your Pants” the Valentine’s Day-themed show from the Cupid Players troupe at Stage 773.
Learn to square dance.
Put on your finest flannel, Romeo, The Heartland Cafe is hosting a Barn Dance. Lessons for beginners, and no partner required. Time to ride that pony.
Use all five senses.
Dance like no one’s watching (because you consumed a 52oz margarita).
No date? Who cares! Dance hall/cantina ¡AY CHIWOWA! is throwing a 90s-themed party with giant margaritas, taco specials, and awesome DJs.
