Even MORE to do on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day Events at the Smithsonian. A 29-cent Love stamp was issued in Loveland, Colorado, on February 6, 1992, in time for use on Valentine's Day cards and letters. The stamp features a large red heart emerging from an open envelope. This was the twelfth stamp in the Love SeriesYes, we've been reporting a lot on Valentine's Day activities here in Penn Quarter, but more and more keeps popping up.  And we know how these things can sneak up on you, so if you're still plan-less (or date-less), we can help.

First, our reservation availability suggestions have since been snatched up, but OpenTable is showing some pretty great reservations still - Cuba LibreHamilton and Poste have very doable times for a party of 2.

If you're looking for something other than dinner and our first round of Valentine's suggestions didn't do it for you, try these:

    Chocolate & Champagne Class
  • "The Art of Love" at the National Portrait Gallery.  A free event from 5-7pm, this event offers it all: speed dating for singles (RSVP here), a love-themed scavenger hunt and lots of other events for couples.  You can even write a love letter (or morale booster) to deployed troops.  
  • Head to Co Co Sala a few days early on February 12th (because they've been booked on Valentine's Day for ages now!) for their chocolate & champagne class.  You get to try five different types of couverture (chocolate with extra cocoa butter) and a flight of champagne and sparkling wine to try with each.  Tickets are $50 and must be bought in advance here.
