If your honey is into the Victorian Era, you might want to wine and dine him or her with a Victorian-style dinner and poetry at the Morris-Butler House in Indianapolis on Valentine's Day.  

Victorian Valentine in Indianapolis 

This historic home (built in 1865) on Indianapolis’ north side showcases its deep red rooms, gilt cherubs and flowers, as a romantic backdrop for a Valentine’s Day dinner.

The evening features a decadent dinner and dessert in the restored Victorian dining room that is  inspired by an 1892 Valentine’s Day issue of Delineator Magazine. The menu for the event includes: Oysters, Squash Soup, Stuffed Pork with Fresh vegetables and breads, Salad in Love Apples, and Poached Pears.

After that, guests adjourn to the parlor for a reading of classic Victorian love poems with harp interludes. There are also tours of the house.

You’ll need to make a reservation by early February.
