It doesn't matter what your relationship status is, you'll find things to do on Valentine's Day (and the weekend after the holiday) all over town. Sure, you could book dinner at one of the most romantic restaurants in Chicago, but if you're willing to get a bit more creative, you could also see a musical based on The Evil Dead or walk through a pop-up installation designed by local artist Hebru Brantley. This year, Valentine's Day coincides with the beginning of NBA All-Star Game Weekend in Chicago, so basketball fans can treat themselves to a romantic evening staring at the court. Need some more unique date ideas? We've rounded up even more great things to do on Valentine's Day in Chicago, whether you've got a partner of you're riding solo.
