Build Your Own Doughnuts

After snapping your heart wall pics, pop into Pepperbox Doughnuts for a raspberry rosé or chocolate éclair, or grab your pre-ordered Build Your Own Doughnut box, which includes four blank doughnuts, chocolate and strawberry frosting, vanilla drizzle, and Valentine-colored sprinkles and hearts. Pre-order the BYOD box using the online order form (see “Valentine’s Day Pre-Order in the menu at the top). 101 W. Worthington Ave., Ste. 150


See a Mile of Lights

The popular “I Heart Rail Trail” lights installation returns to South End from February 19 – March 7. See sculptures, digital projections, and other interactive displays along the one-mile stretch of the Rail Trail between Carson Boulevard and Atherton Mill. Enjoy music, performers, and more surprises along the way. Visitors can interact with the art, but remember the three Ws: Wait 6 feet apart, Wash your hands, and Wear your masks. Bring your camera and tag them on social media @southendclt, #iheartrailtrail, and #railtrailclt.


Say “I Love You” on an Éclair

Amélie’s French Café and Bakery will offer Valentine-themed macarons, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and a number of other sweet treats during the month of February. Surprise the kids with a box of chocolate and vanilla éclairs and customize them with a short, heartfelt message on top. All customized pre-orders must be made at least 24 hours in advance by calling or stopping in any of Amélie’s locations.
