Valentine’s Date Night at The Pan Tree

Learn how to prepare (and get the chance to eat) a four course meal that you prepare for a Valentine’s Day feast. Enjoy a beautiful wine paired with your food. Make this evening an experience to share with your other half! This is a participatory class with full meal. Don’t forget your apron.

Disco Skate at City Hall

Take a twirl around the City Hall rink with your special someone this Valentine’s Day. Skate or dance to the sounds of 1970s and ‘80s. Roast bannock over an open fire, or enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. There are free skate rentals and helmet rentals on a first-come, first-serve basis. It’s a great way to work up an appetite if you’re heading out for dinner. www.edmonton.ca

Disney in Concert 

From the first note and the first snowflake our audiences have been captivated by Disney’s newest animated film classic Frozen! The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is proud to present our newest Disney in Concert event featuring well-loved music and high resolution film clips from some of the best-known films ever. Tale As Old As Time has a little Disney magic for everyone, with a romantic twist for the romantic in you. www.winspearcentre.com

Dinner Theater: Don’t Dress for Dinner 

Join us for an evening of mistaken identities and outrageously quick charades as we present the Tony Award nominated sequel to Boeing-Boeing. It’s 10 years later and Bernard and Gabriella have finally settled down, but the shenanigans continue in what many consider to be the most brilliant bedroom farce of all time! With his wife out of town, an alibi from his best friend Robert, and a gourmet chef to add culinary spice, Bernard has the perfect romantic evening planned for his French mistress — or so he thinks. Desire and infidelity take a comedic turn when a secret affair turns into a comedy of errors, setting the stage for a wacky collision course of hilarious proportions. www.mayfieldtheatre.ca

Speed Dating, Games and Prizes at the Roller Derby 

You’re planning your Valentine’s Day date. You’re a little wild at heart and you want to do something out of the ordinary, something a little different that you’ve never done before. Rock climbing? Been there, done that. Expensive dinner for two? Sure, if you want a repeat performance of last year. Tsk tsk. No, you’ll have to get really creative this time. You know what will blow your date away? Roller skating. www.facebook.com
