Vegan Valentine’s Celebrations

Whether you’re into simple gestures or going all out for a friend, loved one, or yourself, the Twin Cities have many ways to celebrate love compassionately this week.

In case you’re a last-minute planner, we compiled a list of just some of the vegan Valentine’s specials and celebrations going on around the cities.

Make a Valentine’s stop at a vegan restaurant!

If your style is a dinner out, support local businesses as they host vegan Valentine’s date nights on February 14. Some of the specials we’ve seen include:

Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1929. Mistress Ginger, our venerable cabaret queen, has unearthed a treasure trove of delicious Cole Porter tunes for your Valentine’s amusement. With Franco Holder on piano and special guest Joey Clark, Ginger takes you on a vintage musical journey from a chic penthouse in Manhattan to the Café de Paris. Revel in the music of one of the twentieth century’s greatest — and gayest — composers, whose songs are famously full of glamour, wit, passion, and the permission to be naughty. Let’s do it! More info at
