Are you looking for love on Valentine's Day? How about speed dating on a Ferris wheel in Chicago?

Have you ever been without a date on Valentine's Day? I have and it sucks. I tried to be all cool about it and tell everyone it's a stupid Hallmark holiday. My buddy and I went to a bar to watch a metal band and got drunk. Not the most memorable holiday ever. Luckily that was years ago.

If you are looking for a date on Valentine's Day this year, I think there is an event in Chicago you might want to check out.

"Spend Valentine's Day speed-dating on the Navy Pier Ferris wheel."

Now, this sounds interesting.

Here's how it works.

  • Group of daters will be put in each Ferris wheel car for a ride around.
  • Find someone interesting, stay on for another ride.
  • Hit it off with another dater then join a party on the pier.
  • Don't worry if you don't find a match right away. You can keep riding with other groups until you make a connection.

The event happens 6:30pm-9pm on Valentine's Day at Navy Pier.

If nothing else, you get to enjoy a nice ride with a great view of the city.
