The Great Cover Up is an event that takes place on the weekends surrounding Valentine’s Day. The event brings out favorite local cover bands, but it’s a surprise. The bands won’t be revealed until they take the stage. The weekend of February 10-11, 2018, this takes place at the City Center. The weekend of February 17-18, 2018, this takes place at 51 Main.

The Sodo Theatre is putting a twist on the Odd Couple for this Valentine’s Day by introducing The Female Odd Couple. This can be a “Galentine’s Day” outing with the girls to see the show this weekend which introduces Florence Unger and Olive Madison in this hilarious show.

Sometimes the best way to get through Valentine’s Day is to laugh about love. CU Comedy is bringing headliner, Kristen Toomey, from Chicago to Champaign to make everyone laugh their way through this holiday with a special Valentine’s Day set.

On Valentine’s Day, grab a friend and head out to Alto Vineyards for Wine & Cheese and plenty of good conversation.  There’s nothing like commiserating over a glass of wine!

Check out one of the most romantic movies of all time at the Art Theater Co-op. They will be screening Casablanca on Valentine’s Day. Grab dinner and drinks downtown at any of the amazing restaurants. Try fine dining stops like Bacaro, Miga or Nando Milano for a special dinner, or keep it casual with a delicious burger from Farren’s.

Spend the Sunday before Valentine’s Day cozied up at the Allerton Mansion and learn about and listen to Chicago Jazz. This is perfect for music lovers who want to learn how Chicago became the great jazz city that it is, before a performance by the Traditional Jazz Orchestra.

Lola’s Brush will be doing a special Valentine’s Day painting perfect for couples at Grovestone at the Old Farm Shops. With two sides of a heart to paint, couples can do it together with a sampling of 3 wines alongside Grovestone’s olive oils, spices and bread.

Often times, we need to step away from our daily lives to really relax and enjoy each other’s company. How about a staycation right here in Champaign County? Escape to any of the area hotels, many offering special packages for the holiday, and get a night away from the stress of the house or kids, and just enjoy a night together!
