I think stand-up comedy is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day! Check out the event poster for the Griffen Theatre in Salem, grab your sweetheart (or not!), and go.
The theater, on Lynde Street, is a short walk from Gulu Gulu Cafe, Upper Crust Pizza, Rockafellas, Caffe Graziani, and Passage to India. Make a date out of it and check out the dining options on Salem.org! Boston Hot Dog is right there, too, if you're the type of couple that finds great romance in delicious hot dogs!
