For those who are clueless about what to do on Valentine’s Day, want to make a big impression on their date or are simply tired of the same old dinner and a movie, Hamilton County offers something for every taste and budget, whether it’s poetry, theater, a musical or a romantic buffet dinner.
Love, Lust & Poetry (Part Deux) makes a second appearance at the Nickel Plate Arts Campus, 107 S. 8th St., Noblesville. The free exhibit is great for art enthusiasts who will appreciate the range of emotions displayed — love, lust and poetic sentiments. The opening reception occurs on Valentine’s Day. For more information, go to http://nickelplatearts.org.
Bell, Book & Candle is a sweet, romantic comedy for theater buffs, about a witch who casts a love spell on her neighbor. She is surprised when she is the one who ends up falling for him. This is like “Bewitched” meets Harry Potter. It will appear at the Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville: http://thebelfrytheatre.com.
CCP Valentine’s Cabaret, presented by the Carmel Community Players at 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd., Carmel, features songs of romance, relationships and love by some of the area’s best local talent. Go to www.carmelplayers.org.
Date Night is alive with wine tasting, live music, poetry readings and more at the Nickel Plate Arts Campus in Noblesville from 6 to 9 p.m. Check out http://nickelplatearts.org.
For the ultimate Valentine’s Dinner, go to River Glen Country Club, 12010 Clubhouse Drive in Fishers. This evening is filled with a romantic buffet dinner, open bar, prizes, music and a silent auction. The best part is knowing the proceeds go to a great cause: Special Olympics Hamilton County.
