Valentine’s Day is all about acknowledging who and what you love. If you don’t already, you’re going to love Milwaukee after this Plaza-venture we have in store for you on Friday, February 14.
Start with the coolest place in town: Ice Sculptures on Wisconsin Avenue at Chase Tower and 310W. From noon on, celebrate each other with free roses, cookies, donuts, hot cocoa, s’mores, postcards, Love Locks, games and a very Instagrammable ice sculpture throne.
From there, you have two equally romantic options for a special Valentine’s Day dinner and a show. Whether you’re itching for jazz and blues music with Chasin’ Dem Blues: Untold Story of Paramount Records or feeling a multi-Tony Award-winning Broadway musical with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, head north to Calderone Club. Home to some of the best authentic Italian cuisine in Milwaukee, Calderone Club impresses with service and Frank Sinatra tunes just down the street from the city’s iconic Repertory Theater.
If you’re not sold on musicals, take your pick between the powerful story of a marriage in A Small Fire at Next Act Theater or the triumph of the human spirit in Happy Days at Renaissance Theaterworks. Since you’ll be heading south from the Ice Sculptures, make a reservation at Fauntleroy for dinner. Reimagined French fare with a rock and roll flair by Milwaukee’s acclaimed chef duo JVR is sure to impress any date.
Fall in love with the arts and new Milwaukee cuisine with this Valentine’s Day’s Plaza-venture. Just don’t make your date too jealous.
