The Perfect Pittsburgh Valentine’s Day Date for Every Couple
Skip dinner and a movie this year, and opt for something more fun. The height of cabin fever hits in February, and everyone is itching to get out of the house and try something new. What better opportunity than Valentine’s Day? We can’t help you find a date – that’s what Tinder is for – but we can help you with ideas to make the night interesting. Here you go.
Couples Who Like to Nerd Out
Learn something new while making a keepsake with your cutie at TechShop’s I Heart Soldering event, where you’ll learn how to solder and make an LED heart. Afterwards, you can head to dinner at Social and compare notes on your newly-acquired electrical skills.
Couples Who Like to Stay Out Until the Sun Comes Up
Whether you’re trying to keep things casual or have a steady boo, Hot Mass is the place to go if you want to get sexy, wild and/or party your ass off. Bring your fun-loving guy or gal out to test the waters, and if you don’t end up hitting it off, chances are you can find someone else to go home with.
Couples Who Like to Get Naughty
Start things out at one of the South Side’s many romantic restaurants, such as Dish, one of our favorites. Afterwards, get your partner in the mood with a little burlesque at The Smiling Moose during Totally Heart-Lesque, Steel City Kitty’s special Valentine’s Day edition. With so many babes on the bill, it will be hard not to leave hot and bothered.
Couples Who Like to Dress Up
This all you can eat and drink black tie event, hosted by The Brew Gentlemen in Braddock, is the perfect opportunity to fancy it up and impress your date. Known for their delicious, locally-brewed beer, the class of these fellas and their business is sure to rub off on all in attendance. Expect a DJ, a chocolate fountain, heavy apps, and all the beer you can drink.
Couples Who Like to Help Others
Since its inception in 2010, Cupid’s Undie Run has raised millions to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation ($2.8M last year alone). Run in the cold with hundreds of other half-naked participants for a good cause. Plus, you’ll get to see your date in their underwear before you even get in their pants.
Couples Who Like to Cook
Join the Parmesan Princess and Penn Avenue Fish Company’s Timmy Reynolds for a surf & turf cooking demonstration at the Pittsburgh Public Market. This event is free and a great daytime option for those who have an early bedtime.
