Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to show your
sweetheart just what they mean to you with a romantic dinner, chocolates and
flowers, or even a home-cooked meal in your 1500 Locust apartment. But what if
you’re going stag this year? You don’t have to wallow with ice cream and
Netflix—you can enjoy the spirit of the holiday by showing your closest friends
some love with a night out on the town in Philly.
One of Philly’s newest hot spots is also a hub
for group outings: The Met recently reopened as a wide-ranging entertainment
complex, welcoming musicians, comedians, bands, movie premieres and much more
to the renovated century-old building. Built by Oscar Hammerstein in 1908, the
venue was formerly known as the Metropolitan Opera House and was home to the
Philadelphia Orchestra as well as hosted renowned performers from around the
world—before being transformed into a movie theater, church, school and concert
hall over the years. Last year, the building, located 1.5 miles from your 1500
Locust apartment, was reborn with its original focus on the arts and has since
hosted some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment.
On Valentine’s Day, the venue will welcome back
original Philly guys Boyz II Men, who will perform new music alongside some of
their most iconic hits. So if your group has been tight since the days of
“Motown Philly,” spend the holiday revisiting your roots with these local
faves. Or push the celebration off a week and catch the Feb. 22 “Ladies Night
Out” (guys are welcomed, too!), a night of comedy featuring Nene Leakes, Loni
Love, Adele Givens, Sherri Shepher, Kym Whitley and B Simone.
With all there is for your group of friends to
see and do right near your 1500 Locust apartment, there’s plenty to love about
Valentine’s Day this year!
