Candy Conversation Hearts

While most Cincinnati residents will likely be watching the Bengals play the Super Bowl on Feb. 13 and may be too hungover for Valentine’s Day the next morning, we can’t forget to celebrate love.

Luckily Queen City has tons of V-Day events before and after the 14th, both for early risers and for those who forgot to plan something and now have a pissed significant other. But these events should not be reserved for lovers; Take you or your best friend or even your mom for some heart-filled, chocolate-filled fun. (Note: These events were available as early as Tuesday morning, but things may change as the holidays approach. Confirm with business owners or organizers before making plans and be prepared for possible COVID-19 protocols .)
