This year, we are swapping out outrageously expensive romantic meals in restaurants for a more intimate day in-doors, but just because we’re currently cooped-up in doors and we can’t paint the town red, it doesn’t mean Valentine’s day romance needs to be swept under the rug, never to see the light of day. There are a lot of virtual Valentine Day events popping up right now, giving you the pick of a crafty, boozy or even green-fingered fun-filled evening to choose from.
