Time Out says

Perhaps your sweetie isn't the kind into sappy cards and fancy prix fixe dinners. Maybe—and bear with us here—they'd love a romantic (seriously) cemetery tour. 

At "Happily Never After," a tour of Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery, you'll hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic—and doomed—affairs. Learn about star-crossed Victorian lovers, Charlotte Canda and Charles Jarrett; Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.

Be sure to get your tickets ($30/person) in advance for this tour on Saturday, February 25.
