Great Valentine Dates & More
Whether you’re single, part of a couple, or with a fun group of couples looking for Valentine fun & adventure – here are few ‘sweet’ ideas…
Get locked in a room…roll some dice…have a ‘grape’ night at a Vineyard…toss an axe…witness a revolution…and that’s just for starters!
For Adventure Lovers:
XSCAPE the Room’s 2nd annual Valentine’s Day Adventure that’s just for singles.
First, they’ll lock you in a room with other singles… (Sounds good so far, right?) The evening kicks off with a mixer in Xscape The Room’s beautiful atrium where you’ll enjoy beer/wine, lite fare and good conversation with other single adults. (Must be 21). At 6:30 pm you’ll break off into teams and play either The Sanctum or Motherboard. These games promote team work and lots of communication as you search for clues and use them to solve riddles, problems and puzzles that will lead to your escape.

For “A Little More AxeTion, Please”…
Cupid has his arrows…but Delco’s got some hot new AxeTion for adults looking for something very different to do with their Valentines!
Grab your sweetheart (or several couples!) and try something new and different that’s fun, crazy, and memorable. Boothwyn’s brand new Camp Adventureland ‘aims’ to provide an experience that combines entertainment and sport, all under one roof – and this place doesn’t disappoint!
Their indoor 80’s style campground is the perfect place to AXEpress your affection… It’s very similar to darts, only with axes. Camp Counselors will teach you the basics of how to throw and then you get to compete against each other – and that’s when the axes really fly! You’ll be hitting the bullseye in no time at all. Hopefully 😉 If not, your axe may result in leaving with an ex.

Celebrate the “heArt” of Change & Revolution at the Brandywine River Museum of Art
This month the Brandywine River Museum presents two moving exhibits that reflect the heart and soul of a nation fighting with itself, to live up to the promise and intent of its Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Both exhibits illustrate the fervor and actions required to ensure that our nation fulfilled its promise that every citizen had the right to vote…
Come and explore VOTES FOR WOMEN: A VISUAL HISTORY
This exhibit is a moving commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. In the absence of televised and digital media, the suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, parades and even through fashion – white gowns, white hats, and diagonal sashes.
Also opening this month, Witness to History: Selma Photography
The historic 1965 Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, Civil Rights March concerned one issue—the right to vote. Two thousand marchers set out on March 21 along Route 80, known as the “Jefferson Davis Highway.” After two failed attempts to complete the march, President Johnson dispatched federal and state troops to guard the demonstrators along their way to the state capital, 54 miles away. By the time the marchers reached Montgomery, their number had grown to 25,000.
Hearing of the events, 24-year-old student photographer Stephen Somerstein boarded a bus in New York City and headed to Alabama. He arrived on March 25, in time for the final march to Montgomery. With five cameras around his neck and only 15 rolls of film, Somerstein seemed to be everywhere at once documenting this pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement. He captured photographs of Dr. King and other prominent activists such as Rosa Parks, James Baldwin, Bayard Rustin, John Lewis, and Joan Baez. See 55 of the photographs taken by Somerstein, accompanied by his commentary of the day’s events. New Exhibits at The Brandywine River Museum of Art
