Whether you’re single or in a relationship, head over to the Highland Ballroom for some Valentine’s Day fun that doesn’t include cheesy cards, wilted flowers or cheap chocolate. Instead, you’ll receive two complimentary cocktails, red velvet cake pops, craft beer ice cream and a night of fun. The first 100 people will receive handmade boutonnieres from Atlanta’s one and only Baton Bob.
