Every year, we look for all the other possible Valentine’s Day activities we can suggest to our readers. This year’s lineup looks particularly “untapped” with activities ranging from a tour of the Digester Eggs at Newtown Creek to an exploration inside Ellis Island’s abandoned hospital. Here’s what’s in store:

1. Cocktail Hour at the American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History is hosting a cocktail hour inside the Cullman Hall of the Universe, complete with an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, chocolates and music by the Josh Rutner Quartet. If that’s not enough, AMNH will also offer an unbeatable view of the night sky in the Hayden Planetarium, accompanied by romance stories “from the ancient past.”
