Eschew the dinner date on Valentine’s Day and snap up tickets to this swanky soiree at the American Museum of Natural History’s Rose Center for Earth and Space. The night begins among the asteroids (have a "heavenly bodies" quip ready) with an open bar of cocktails and champagne, passed hors d’oeuvres and chocolate, while a jazz quartet sets the mood with standards. An hour later, cozy up in the Hayden Planetarium while an astronomer tells lovey-dovey stories based on the mythology of the cosmos.

A really unique, and New York, way to spend Valentine's Day. It's so much better than going to a restaurant for a sub-par set menu that they're definitely overcharging for. 

The live jazz was great, the bar was flowing and the planetarium show was beautiful.
