Coffee Is for Lovers: L.A. Valentine’s Day Crawl

What could be more romantic than grabbing your sweetie’s hand and heading out to frolic in the Los Angeles sunshine visiting some of the city’s highest quality and most talked about coffeehouses? That’s what the folks at the LA Coffee Club thought when they came up with the super awesome concept for this Valentine’s Day (that’s a week from tomorrow, guys). Welcome to Coffee Is For Lovers: The Los Angeles Valentine’s Day Crawl.


Here’s how it works: spend your February 14 checking in at participating cafes to qualify for the giveaway of a romantic prize for two. See the map? Well, you get qualified for the big prize when you visit (and check in at) the ones with the gold icon. Here’s the official word on how to check in: Check-in at each participating location by scanning a QR code at check-out counter or tagging your Instagram or Vine posts with your location and the hash tag #CoffeeIsForLovers. Winners will be chosen at random. Each check-in qualifies for another entry in the give-away

Other awesome cafes are marked with the blue pin, and you should totally visit those, too, but they don’t qualify you for the prize.

These are the participating cafes that a visit to will qualify you for the smokin awesome grand prize.


But it’s not over when the sun sets! There are contests and a party to follow! And oh, by the way, if you’re not able to spend February 14 crawling around the city, never fear — you can still participate in the evening activities!

So the evening Latte Heart (wink wink) Throwdown and the after-party are from 6 “10 p.m. at Project Gallery + Espresso, 1553 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Los Angeles. The party and the latte heart throwdown are free, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO REGISTER! So go HERE to do that.

In fact, go HERE for all the other details and answers to your questions. These guys have got this thing down!
