Milwaukee valentine's day

Wait, Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday?! This Wednesday?! Two days away, Wednesday?!


Now before you panic and impulse buy some less-than-stellar chocolates and a card, scroll through the list below. We’ve got some low-budget ideas for you last-minute lovers.

  1. Valentine’s Day with Jerry Grillo at The Jazz Estate

Singer Jerry Grillo, the unofficial Sinatra of Milwaukee, will be performing songs about love, life, and relationships. The Estate doesn’t take reservations, so you’re not late in the game there. Cocktail service starts at 5, music starts at 8.


  1. Outpost Valentine’s Day Market

Maybe you’ve got dinner planned, but still need a gift for that special someone? Check out an entire market of one-of-a-kind, local offerings at a special holiday edition of the Outpost Makers Market. Sneak out of work, grab a gift and you’ll look like the most prepared procrastinator at the party.


  1. Valentine’s Day in the Sky

If your sweetheart isn’t down for dressed-up dinners, this Valentine’s Day activity is sure to please. Sky Zone Trampoline Park is offering an hour-long jump session plus pizza and beverages for two - for just $25 total!


  1. Beer, Chocolate and Cheese Pairing at Mobcraft

Do I need to say more? Cool, didn’t think so.


  1. Sweet treats for your sugar pie

Show your Valentine you’re in-the-know with Milwaukee’s culinary scene by taking him or her to Batches, a brand-new bakery on Erie St. And by brand-new, we mean *brand-new* by the time the clock strikes midnight on Valentine’s Day, Batches will have just wrapped their first day of business. Eat in in their adorably decorated space or take it home for a cozy night of cuddling.

And if your Valentine’s Day is in need of a soundtrack, check out the playlist we put together on Spotify.
