Looks like all the restaurants are filling up! You know it’ll be an hour-long wait for a table. Or maybe you’re not the dinner out type at all? No worries, we’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for something to do with your sweetheart and dining isn’t your forte, here are some different, unique Valentine’s Day activities in Toronto.

CATCH AN ART EXPO ON QUEEN WEST

Ah, the many times we tried to draw a heart for our Valentine. They’re harder than they look, okay? Perhaps this cool art exposition called Show The Love will inspire your creativity, or at least entertain you. The show features a variety of local artists and their work for sale. Bring your muse, get inspired and sip a beer afterwards with their drink specials!

When: Friday, February 14
Where: 592 Queen St W
Time: 3 PM – 11 PM

JOIN A CARD MAKING WORKSHOP

Remember when we used to make little Valentine’s cards in school? So much glue and pink glitter everywhere. This fun workshop proves that making Valentines is for grown-ups too! They’ll impress your crush more than those little candy hearts. Or at least as much, hopefully.

When: Friday, February 14
Where: 789 Yonge St
Time: 6 PM – 7:30 PM
Cost: Free
