February 2, 2022 | Deep Ellum Team

Whether you’re looking for a meal to take home, a place to have a special date or an opportunity to show your love to friends, there’s plenty going on in Deep Ellum.

Here are a few ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the neighborhood this year:

Dallas Mimosa Walk: St. Valentine’s Day Weekend

Every year around Valentine’s Day, we get another chance to sip mimosas while exploring Deep Ellum businesses, and this year it’s back. It will start at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market (with more than 50 vendors), where guests receive the “You Had Me at Mimosa” souvenir glass, a map and a wristband. This is a self-guided tour with samplings of mimosas at each shop on the map. Get 20% off with discount code DEEPELLUM through Monday, Feb. 7. Buy now, as this event will sell out.
