Planning Now for Valentine's Day 2023
Fun & Romantic Activities For Valentine's Day in Kansas City
We are about a month out from one of the most high-pressure days of the entire year. Insert dramatic pause ….Valentine’s Day.
But do not despair, there is still time to make some grand plans! Even if you are choosing not to do something grand and showy, and just are looking for something fun to celebrate with the people you love, the Kansas City area has a whole bunch of options to commemorate the day. Please note: some events or activities are offered on a day/evening other than February 14th, and most require reservations ahead of time. These options are just some Valentine’s outings that sound like they could be the makings of a fun night out, but in reality, it is up to you!

“Our events offer a fresh alternative to speed dating and matchmaking.

Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. It's what we call cheeky-chic!
Our personable hosts will assist you with your MyCheekyDate 'Date-Mate' Scorecard. Flirty and fun, your Scorecard is just the beginning. Chat up our Hosts for tips or simply to ask, which direction the bar is in! After being shown to your table, the ladies will remain seated for the duration of the event. The gents move from lovely lady to lovely lady every six to seven minutes. Simply jot down your potential 'Date-Mates' at the bottom of your Scorecard and we'll take care of the rest. For those who garner matches, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event ending of your 'Date-Mate' results. Alas, the event is over but the night has just begun.
Feel free to stay as long as you would like to mingle further. All we need are the 'Date-Mate' Scorecards to determine if love is in the air for you. Offering uncompromising value with unparalleled service. Lovely venues and our lovely Hosts to assist you with anything or anyone. Meet a partner to attend concerts, music festivals, bar crawls or fitness classes. Someone who shares your passions and interests - from sports to yoga - all in a setting just your speed."
