Looking to think outside the (chocolate) box this Valentine’s Day? Skip the hard-to-secure reservations and crowded, over-priced restaurants and opt for an artful tribute to Cupid’s arrow.

Grab your sweetheart, BFF or parents and head to the Mattress Factory for a creative new twist on local brunching and the Feast of Saint Valentine. Dubbed “Breakfast in Bed: All You Need Is Love,” Sunday’s event pairs locally made libations and cuisine, DIY making, and room-sized installation art.

Brunch-goers will quench their thirst with Salúd Juicery mimosas, Ustianochka vodka Bloody Marys and beers from War Streets Brewery. Chefs from the MF Café will craft a continental breakfast with all of your brunch needs, like mini quiches, homemade banana and zucchini breads, bagels, croissants, pastries and fresh fruit.

Make a treasured medallion for your special valentine, and step into large-scale, multimedia installations for inspiration.

Looking to add a furry friend to your brood? Stop by the event’s adoption station to meet available pets from the local nonprofit, Animal Friends.

Attendees will enjoy exclusive access to the museum’s galleries—which are typically closed to the public on Sunday morning. Featured works include the MF’s world-renowned permanent collections, as well as the Factory Installed and A Second Home special exhibitions on view at 500 and 516 Sampsonia Way and 1414 Monterey Street.
