One will be at Mugs Coffee in South Charlotte on Park Road (between Tyvola and Woodlawn) starting at 7pm for spoken word and music

The other will be at The Smelly Cat in NoDa (if you don’t know where it is, you shouldn’t be in Charlotte) starting at 7:30pm for comedy

If you really want to impress your valentine and if you’re incredibly talented, you can spit some lyrics at Mugs for a few minutes, then race up to NoDa to she her how funny you are.

#4 Non-Amateur Music

Tomorrow night Faith Evans, 112 & Carl Thomas will be performing at The Ovens Auditorium (click here for tickets) and Big Head Todd and The Monsters will be performing at The Filmore (click here for tickets), both concerts will be starting at 8pm, so can only pick one.

If you’re ridiculously hardcore, you could go to both of the open mic nights, and a concert.

#3 Enjoy The View

1. Crowders Mountain (a few miles west of Gastonia) – you can just make out Charlotte’s skyline, as well as most of the state of North Carolina from the top

2. Jetton Park Beach (Cornelius) – watch the sun set over Lake Norman.

3. Romare Bearden Park (Uptown) – stare at the most beautiful skyline in the world and watch the stunning light show atop our incredible skyscrapers.

You could also go uptown to watch the lights after the open mic nights and concerts.

#2 Stay Inside

Just make sure it’s a movie your valentine will like, such as Accidental Love (Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal), or The Last 5 Years (Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan).

Unless you both love action movies, and hate romance, and valentines day.

If you want to get real crazy, you could go inside after the open mic nights, concerts, and sitting uptown.

#1 Get Fancy
