Dayton’s Not Dead: V-Day in the Miami Valley


No matter how you want to celebrate love day, with a significant other, with friends or by yourself, there are plenty of options for celebrating in Dayton.

Lock 27 Brewing Company

Hosted by Cupid’s Undie Run, Lock 27 will be hosting an Undie run on Feb. 15, the Saturday following the big day. Cupid’s Undie Run is in support of neurofibromatosis (NF) research.

NF is a genetic disease that may produce tumors to grow on nerves, according to the Cupid’s Undie Run webpage. This approximately one-mile run is seen as a light-hearted way to raise awareness. Undies are optional, but costumes are encouraged.

MetroParks Ice Rink

There will be a Sweetheart Skate at MetroParks Ice Rink all through Valentine’s weekend. Lovers can buy a $20 deal that comes with two skate rentals, two hot chocolates and a box of chocolates from Bellbrook Chocolate Shoppe, while supplies last.

Space Three

If you’re really looking to get weird this V-Day, it might be worth looking into Space Three’s Valentine’s Day Sweat Sesh. There is a Couples’ Total Body Resistance Exercise (TRX) class at 5:15 p.m or a Galentine’s Swerk class at 6:30 p.m. The classes are $30 for two people and they come with chocolates and champagne to get moving on Feb. 14.
