Fun and Romantic Valentine’s Day To-Dos!

Don’t be a couch potato this Valentine’s Day! Take your partner out on a fun, romantic winter date and make a February memory! From cooking classes – where you’ll eat out of each other’s hands – to comedy improv and whiskey-sipping adventures, there are plenty of unique things to do in and around Erie this Valentine’s Day!

Cooking for Two

The Cook Street School of Culinary Arts is planning to stir up more than delicious dishes this weekend on Saturday, February 10 in Denver. Enjoy a hands-on cooking class with someone special as you craft simple but scrumptious dishes perfect for a brunch buffet. Your meal of Eggs Benedict and Sweet Crepes will be served with two glasses of wine or beer or more, available for purchase.

Concerts with Cupid

Lights is an artist who is always pushing boundaries and you can take your sweetie to see her perform with Chase Atlantic, and DCF. Elle describes Lights as “a musician, and artist and a comic book hero,” and Playboy has dubbed her, “real life musical wonder woman.” Don’t miss the chance to see this alt-pop phenomenon push even more boundaries on Tuesday, February 13 at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, just 20 minutes from Colliers Hill.

Paul Riser Yacht Rock Revue on February 11 at the Boulder Theater just 20 minutes from Colliers Hill features a fantastic tribute to 70s light rock with spot-on renditions of Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, the Beatles and more.

Comedy Improv

In the style of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, four actors and a moderator use audience shout-outs to make for a romantic night of craziness. On the Spot, at the Bovine Metropolis Theater in Denver, remains a local favorite, using the audience’s unique, interactive, suggestions to improvise scenes, games, and songs to make newcomers or regulars laugh themselves silly!

With as many as 20 improv games performed in one show, On the Spot is a perfect outing this Valentine’s Day for lovers and friends!

Distillery Tour

You can do a pub crawl any old time, but for a no-kidding, sippin’ whiskey, distillery tour head for Laws Whiskey or Stranahan’s this weekend. Laws Whiskey is hosting a food pairing at The Corner Office on February 8, and if you end up at Stranahan’s, you’ll receive a $10 discount on a bottle of whiskey after the tour. The tours are from 60 to 90 minutes.

Couples Yoga

On February 9 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. bring your partner to a couples’ yoga class with Andrea Villa at the Bodywork Bistro 25 minutes from Erie in Boulder. This playful and intimate workshop focuses on feeling and trusting each other through touch in two hours of partner yoga.

Mystery Games

Inspired by the escape room craze trending around the world, Puzzah in Denver features a number of puzzles and mysteries to solve, like Kellar Kazam’s attic. Armed with only a pair of special glasses, you and your partner (you can double date on this one!) unravel the mystery of Kazam’s disappearance in 60 minutes.

Life is an adventure and the real life games at the Boulder Escape Room prompt you to leave your cell phones at home while you use your wit and wherewithal to find clues, solve riddles and decipher hidden messages. Escape The Abduction, or The Psycho Killer. Despite the names, the games are not scary and you’ll likely join more people in a room since these games designed for eight players.

Fun and Games in Colliers Hill

The 6500-square foot amenity center in the master-planned community of Colliers Hill is the perfect place for fun and games, and the community itself is minutes from sports programs for all ages. Come by and view the 10 spectacular models from Shea Homes and Richmond American Homes — they will take your breath away!
