Simpl will be servin’ up brunch; Hi-Wire will be slingin’ bottomless mimosas; there will be DIY card makin’ and yoga posin’ and all that good, gal stuff. Learn more and snag your ticket here!

Gypsy Circus in North Knoxville

NORTH KNOXVILLE:

🌟 What’s the opposite of laughter? Screams of terror. And don’t worry, friends.

Both laughter and connection are being promised, so we say try it out. (And we’re also not mad about the fact it’s right next to Water into Wine…)  You can book your class here!

Love in Downtown Knoxville

DOWNTOWN:

Hopelessly devoted to Downtown Knox? We got you!😉

Snag your ticket here!

🌟 Sugar Coated on the 100 Block is having a Galentines Pop Up with ACF Jewelry on February 12th! There will be sips, snacks, and saaales on all things self-care. Even more adorably, ACF Jewelry will be offering half off their endless chains if you bring your bestie 😭💛 Learn more here!

⭐️ If you’re a classic downtown Valentine’s Day dinner guy, the Scruffy City has got you covered. Both Kefi and Vida are hosting five course prix fixe dinners.  (Vida is notably stinkin’ conveniently located to The Vault for romantic post-dinner cocktails.)  JC Holdway is *chef’s kiss* when it comes to date night – and their Valentines Day menu is lookin’ extra delish.

🌟 Finally, if Knoxville really is your Valentine, there’s no better place to fall in love with her than on the Star of Knoxville 😍 This authentic paddlewheel riverboat will take you up and down the Tennessee River with unique views of downtown Knoxville, Neyland Stadium, and Sequoyah Hills (with a meal to boot!).
