Valentine's in Detroit
February 12, 2011 4:56 PM   Subscribe

What are some things to do and places to go for a Valentine's day in Detroit? Art or science related a big plus!

I think we're going to La Petit Zinc, a French/crepe restaurant.

I was planning on hitting a few museums, particularly MOCAD, but I forgot V-day was on a Monday, when galleries are usually closed.

We both like art, photography, science, and music. Pretty broad, but can anyone suggest ideas?

There's a Deerhoof show in Pontiac at the Crofoot that night, but we'll probably go to that only if we can't find more stuff to do in Detroit.

I thought the Burton Theater might have an event, but their web calendar looks empty for the 14th.

comments will be watched and responded to, thanks!

Is the "Rattlesnake Club" still open?
I was there several years ago and 'would love to have gone in but we couldn't do so at the time.
I love the name!

Ice skating in Campus Martius would be romantic.

Dirty Show! Don't know if erotic art is your thing, but I've been going for 5 years and will be going next weekend. Its down in Eastern Market.
Right down the street is an excellent thai place in an old firefhouse.
Reservations are necessary I am sure and tickets to the show before hand.

The Henry Ford - formerly known as Greenfield Village

If the Dirty Show is little much, The Detroit Dizzy Dames are at Cliff Bell's on Valentine's Night. Their Facebook page says VIP tickets are sold out, so it's general admission only.

I did the The Parade Company private tour last year. Probably too late to book that.
