30+ Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Posted on February 11th, 2020

Entertainment, culinary, artistic and multicultural treasures abound in Kalamazoo!

If you aren’t sure how to celebrate the holiday weekend, we’ve rounded up some ideas for things to do this Valentine’s Day.



Valentine’s Day Drag Show Saugatuck Brewing Co. Kalamazoo

If you’re searching for an alternative Valentine’s Day date-night experience, look no further. Saugatuck Brewing Co. Kalamazoo is proud to present Valentine’s Day Drag Show — the first drag show performed at their new location in Kalamazoo!

You’re not going to want to miss this fabulous Valentine’s Day event, hosted by Monique Madison and starring Yolanda DelFierce!


Greek Vegan Valentine Dinner Theo and Stacy’s

Theo & Stacy’s Downtown is proud to offer a special Greek Vegan Valentine Day Dinner on February 14, 2020 from 6pm-8pm!

Stacy is hand preparing a host of traditional Greek menu items that is sure to entice vegan and gluten free diners. The complete menu can be found on our website theoandstacys.com under the Vegan Night tab.


Black Hearted Beer Release Bell’s Brewery

Love isn’t always handwritten notes and candy hearts. Sometimes, it’s a sinkhole full of skeletons and worn out platitudes, yet here you stand with your chin held high. Bell’s latest member of the Hearted family, a Black IPA, holds no ire towards love lost, it thrives on it.


Heartbreaker’s Ball Shakespeare’s Lower Level

A very special Valentine’s Day Comedy Showcase –
Heartbreaker’s Ball: A Night Of Hilarious Dating Stories


Sounds of Love Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra at Miller Auditorium

Celebrate Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) with friends or your significant other and the KSO! They’re playing some of the greatest romantic standards along with sounds of love from Broadway, opera, and film.


Pink Ice Game Wings Event Center

Help bring awareness for cancer research and wear lots of pink Friday, Feb. 14 as the Kalamazoo Wings face the Kansas City Mavericks at 7:00 p.m. for the annual Pink Ice Game at Wings Event Center. It’s also a perfect event to bring your date for Valentine’s Day! $2 beers, sodas and hot dogs, and a chance to support a great cause, as the money raised will benefit Susan G. Komen.

Thanks to everyone who attended the student appreciation performance of THE CAKE last night. It was a smash! The cast is excellent: Zoë Vonder Haar, Steve Isom, Molly Spiroff and Tia Pinson deliver exciting, nuanced performances filled with many layers of emotion. We are proud of them and also of how the show looks and sounds so here is some appreciation for our incredible team behind the scenes: Our director, D. Terry Williams has blended all the ingredients and baked a very successful theatrical cake. He has mentored his Asst. Director, Danielle Kropveld, all while expertly guiding a top notch design team: Props Designer Jody Badalamenti, Lighting Designer Kristen Chesak, Scenic Designer Dan Guyette (our design based on original design by Dan Gray at @humanracetheatre in OH), Sound Designer Tony Mitchell, Tech Director Gunnar Schmidt, Costume Designer Kathryn Wagner, Scenic Artist Alexa Wiljanen, Wardrobe Supervisors Marcia & Tom Smith and Hair/Wig Designer Ryan Singleton. Meanwhile our Stage Management team Roger Burleigh, Carrie Phillips and Julie Minar keep it all running so smoothly. We are so grateful for all of you! 🎂 THE CAKE runs February 7-23. Call 343-2727 or visit farmersalleytheatre.com for single tickets! 🍰 #farmersalleytheatre #downtownkalamazoo #thecake #bekahbrunstetter #lgbt #lgbtq🌈

Get to know one another’s drink styles with a wine or spirits tasting

Thank you for the invite @greendoordistilling !!! All of their spirits were very unique and SO good!!! Left to right: • 🥃Get Lost Vodka- this vodka is unlike anything I’ve tasted! It has a buttery, almost popcorn like finish! Great to sip on its own, but still smooth enough to mix with any cocktail! • 🥃Barrier Ridge Bourbon • 🥃Abandoned Gin- Floral & Citrus flavors come through with this Gin and it’s absolutely the most unique Gin I have ever tasted! • 🥃High Point Honey Whiskey- Made with local Honey so there isn’t any artificial flavors! Would mix perfectly with Barrier Ridge Bourbon • 🥃Backpack Java Liqueur- This is great on its own, but would pair perfectly with Coffee or Hot Chocolate! Or their Boozy Barista Cocktail . . . . Stay tuned for some behind the scenes pictures, and how they came up with the name Green Door! . . . #GreenDoorDistilleryCo #GreenDoor #GreenDoorDistillery #DowntownKzoo #TogetherDowntown #DiscoverKzoo #Vodka #Bourbon #Whiskey #Gin #GetLostVodka #BarrierRidgeBourbon #AbandonedGin #HighPointHoneyWhiskey #BackpackJava
