Fond of U Date Night at JoJo’s ShakeBar
While Fond of U Date Night is billed as a couple’s experience, we think this is a great event to take the kids to as well, just maybe not on Valentine’s Day itself.

This event runs from February 5 to February 16 with two seatings per night. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
