2. With friends: Galentine's Day Party

Galentine's Day

Sex and The City marathon complete with friends, champagne, and macrons. I love that macrons are the new cupcake.  Two local bakeries in Bloomington, Feast Bakery, and Blu Boy Chocolate and Cakery, serve up excellent macrons with flavors changing constantly. My favorites down South (also available to buy online) are Maison de Macrons and Cacao Atlanta.

1. With your honey: Dinner and a Movie

Buskirk ChumleyCasablanca at the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater and dinner downtown Bloomington sounds like the perfect Valentine's date to me. Guess I'm more old fashioned than I thought...
