My picks for the best budget Valentines Day ideas in the Twin Cities for 2014!
Add a little spice to your Valentine’s Day entertainment! Likened to “an old time variety show” on the Le Cirque Rouge website, this show should be a singing, dancing good time with your sweetie! I have been meaning to get over to this restaurant to try out the unique Dutch cuisine…now I have a great excuse!
Le Cirque Rouge Cabaret and Burlesque Show
Amsterdam Bar and Hall
6th and Wabasha, St Paul, MN 55102
$60/table for two
Looking for an excuse to cling on to your sweetheart? Head to the Depot skating rink for valentines day for some slippery fun! Sick of the unending cold? No problem! The skating rink is enclosed in glass for warmth, so you can enjoy this great winter activity without the persistent cold.
The Depot Skating Rink
225 South 3rd Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55401
$9/person ($7/skate rental)
Looking for an excuse to get dressed up on the big V day this year? Are you the kind of person who loves art, design and fashion? Think black and white ball, hors d’oeuvres, drinks and lots of mingling.
Black Hearts Ball
The Minneapolis Club
729 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis
$15/general admission ($30 for VIP)
Would you like to enjoy an evening of the finer things in life with your loved one (think – WINE). Do you wish you knew how to pick out the appropriate wine to serve with any given meal? North Loop Wine and Spirits can help! They are hosting a wine tasting by candlelight on February 13th (for those wanting to avoid the Valentine’s day craziness!)
North Loop Wine and Spirits Valentine’s Day Wine Tasting
218 Washington Avenue N. Minneapolis
Fun in the snow on Valentine’s Day! Head to Richardson Nature Center for snowshoeing in candle-lit woods, hot cocoa, live music (bring your own wine or beer!) Snuggle by a warm, crackling camp fire with your sweetie and huddle for warmth (you will need to huddle together to stay warm if the rest of this winter has been any indication!)
