Valentine's Day Fun

Feb 06, 2015

Still looking for something to do on Valentine's Day? You're in luck! There is a ton to do from daytime activities to restaurant specials in the Hartford region. Read our list below on where you should take your loved ones, and don't waste anymore time to book your day!

Hartford Sled Derby
Don’t miss the 3nd annual Hartford Art Sled Derby. Seriously, don’t. The derby takes place on the east side of Elizabeth Park at the Overlook on Prospect.

Sea Tea Improv's Hartbeat Comedy Night on Valentine's Day!
Sea Tea Improv's Hartbeat Comedy Night is a special Valentine's Day event at Hartbeat Ensemble's Carriage House Theater. You can see 2 completely different comedy shows, one SNL-style sketch comedy, and one adults-only improv based on dating stories!

Love is the language that we can all feel. The Diaries of Adam & Eve are a humorous and affectionate look at the first couple on Earth’s misadventures in the Garden of Eden.  A valentine of sorts to Twain’s own marriage to his beloved Livy, we celebrate Valentine’s Day with this unique performance followed by a wine and chocolate reception.

UConn Hockey vs Northeastern
Can you think of a better Valentine’s Day date than this? Nothing says “I love you but I also love sports and beer in plastic cups” than watching UConn Men’s Hockey beat Northeastern.

Wine Tasting
In the mood for some wine? Who isn't! You have no idea how hard it is to remember what kind of vino you like after consuming half a bottle at a friend’s house after dinner. Or maybe you do.
