Valentine's Day is coming up in a couple of weeks, and if you do happen to celebrate the National day of "love", some of these things might be a little different than the usual go out for dinner deal.

There are some events around greater Minnesota that surround the actual day which is February 14th.  Full disclosure, I do feel a little like this "holiday" is made up by the card companies, but it can be fun to do something a little out of the "norm".

Here are some ideas

February 10th:

CANDLELIGHT: Romantic Jazz featuring the music of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Granada Theatre in Minneapolis

ERIN & JAY NAUGHTY OR NICE VALENTINE: Crooners Mainstage in Minneapolis.

February 11-14


February 12

Get your run on with the CUPID'S UNDIE RUN This is happening on the Saturday before actual Valentine's Day.  Best thing about this is that it is for a great cause.  Proceeds go towards NF research for the Children's Tumor Foundation.

BE MINE VALENTINES CRAFT AND GIFT SHOW: This is happening on Saturday before V-Day at the American Legion in Mound.

February 12-13

FEBRUARY ART FAIR: Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  You get this exhibit with your regular admission to the arboretum.

Valentine's Day, February 14

SPEED DATING: This could be fun.  If you are single and always wanted to try this, could be the best time!  Why not?

PRUDENCE JOHNSON AND DAN  CHOUINARD: Jazz.  Take in dinner and cocktail hour before the show.

Granted, most of these are a bit of a drive for the weekend, but it might be fun to make a Valentine's Weekend, and get away for a bit and do something new and a bit different.
