Cupid Visits the Windy City

Looking for love in all the right places.

It’s Valentine’s Day in Chicago and love is being spread throughout the city. It’s a day full of love and warmth and for others it’s full of bitterness and sorrow. Whether you’re single, married or not looking at all, Chicago has plenty of events on today.

Instead of going out for drinks, why not learn how to make them? For the couples in Chicago, the Martini Bar is hosting a couples martini mixing class. For only $30 per couple, mates will enjoy cocktails and appetizers while learning how to make three different martinis. Register today to mix love and martinis in one place.

If you’re single and not ready to mingle, check out “Cupid is Stupid” at the Fedora Lounge for their anti-valentine’s day party. Embrace your independence alone or with your friends with others who are not involved this time of year. Forget the roses and heart candy, enjoy “Broken Heart Shots” and “Broken Heart-ichoke Fritters” in this love free zone. The Cupid is Stupid party will also feature live music and a black heart pinata.

If you are looking to add some comedy to this special day, check out Letters/X at the Apollo Theater. Letters/X is an original Chicago anti-Valentines cabaret. This special cabaret includes material that comes from real life letters, facebook posts, texts and emails from all around the world. Enjoy this rare performance for only $10, which includes champagne and sweets for you and your mate.

Whether you are with your significant other, friends or at home with your mother watching Pretty Woman, remember to spread love.
