Valentine's Day 2014 Kansas City Events Parties Galas by KCMB News Kansas City

This year is a great year to be in love, or maybe you're looking for that special someone? Either way we've got you covered here at KCMB News with all of the biggest and best Valentine's Day 2014 Kansas City events, parties and galas that are happening around the city.

For 2015 Valentine's Day in Kansas City Go Here

One of the biggest and most popular Valentine's Day galas will be Children's Mercy Hospital's Red Hot Night 2014. This popular charity fundraiser is in it's 10th year and will be held on February 8th, 2014 at Bartle Hall in the Grand Ballroom in downtown KC. This event will feature a gourmet dinner prepared by the Westin Crown Center, a pre-party hosted by Toyota, Silent, Super Silent and Live Auctions presented by Deloitte, and the headline act will be The KC All Stars band presented by Adam Blue Productions. The auction items for Red Hot Night 2014 include trips to Las Vegas, Steamboat Springs, Captiva and Florida, a 2 year lease on a 2014 Avalon XLW Premium, suites to watch The Kansas City Chiefs and The Royals and more exciting items. This year's Honorary Co-Chairs are Dave and Mikel Flickinger and Kevin and Stacie Needham. For information on how to donate to Children's Mercy Hospital visit their main website at www.

Valentine's Day 2014 in Kansas City falls on a Friday so it will be a very busy night. Be sure and watch your driving and take a cab if you plan to be drinking as there will be DUI checkpoints everywhere in town that night. KC also offers pedicabs now which is a creative transportation solution as well.

For smaller Valentine's Day 2014 KC plans you might consider dining at one of the classic romantic restaurants like the Melting Pot  at 450 Ward Parkway in the Plaza, be sure and call for reservations asap at 816-931-6358 for the Melting Pot as they will fill up quickly. Another great spot would be Milano at Crown Center, they feature incredible chef prepared italian cuisine and you could also walk around that entire area as it is in the Crown Center shopping center which is attached to the Westin Crown Center who has a great bar in the lobby and you could even jump into the tunnel that takes you over the street to Union Station. Finally one of our favorite secret places to spend Valentine's Day is at our local EBT on 435 and State Line. EBT is an incredible fine dining restaurant and features private elevator car tables that were taken from the original Emery Bird Thayer building downtown and installed into the restaurant as booths! You're literally sitting inside an elevator while you dine - very swank. Reviews of Kansas City restaurant EBT are almost all positive and the service there is the best.
