Whether you're single, married, dating or something in between, you'll find tons of ways to celebrate love in Chicago this Valentine's Day. If candlelit dinners and dozens of roses feel like a tired way to mark the holiday, plan a unique date with your sweetheart at an '80s prom-themed party, catch performances at the Hideout's Cosmic Country Showcase or take a couples cooking class at Time Out Market Chicago. Looking to spend the day with friends instead? You and your pals can sip cocktails and learn how to make flower crowns at KOVAL's Galentine's workshop the weekend before V-Day, or browse tons of locally-made goods at The Plant's Valentine's market. For even more romantic things to do, check out our roundup of Valentine's Day events in Chicago.
