Put a New Spin on Date Night this Valentine’s Day

Chocolate, flowers, dinner and a movie are all staples of Valentine’s Day. But with so much exciting entertainment abounding right near your 1500 Locust apartment, why not change up your Valentine’s Day date this year?

Instead of giving your sweetheart something to unwrap, give him or her the gift of a night out enjoying one another’s company—and having lots of laughs! You can do both at Helium Comedy Club, the city’s premiere comedy venue that’s just a half-mile from your 1500 Locust apartment. The weekend of Valentine’s Day will feature performances by Jon Dore, an award-winning comedian and actor. Dore has his own comedy show on Canada’s Comedy Network, has appeared on Comedy Central and has acted in a number of sitcoms and movies.

Helium is one of Philly’s oldest and most well-known comedy centers, having hosted some of the nation’s biggest names in comedy. It uses a three-act format so, for just one ticket price, you get to see an opener, featured performer and the headliner. The theater includes plenty of small tables perfect for date night, and is sure to be brimming with couples on Valentine’s Day. Comedians are known to wander the aisles and may even call audience members up on stage—so make sure you and your date are prepared! Also, be ready to sip and sample, as Helium has a two-item minimum policy—since you’re walking, you can indulge on wines, spirits or brews as the comedians keep the laughs coming or dive into the extensive food menu.

So grab your special someone and celebrate the holiday the best way possible—with laughter!—at Helium Comedy Club.
