Single or attached, you don’t win any points from Cupid by letting hearing loss confine you from the rest of the world. Modern audiology makes intervening in hearing loss so convenient that life doesn’t have to look much different from your healthy hearing years. You might not typically associate Valentine’s Day with a banquet for the ears, but you might skip the extra chocolate this year and treat your ears instead!
Being in the world and enjoying the spice of life is essential to experiencing connection and what better do to reconnect with the ones you love than by celebrating Valentine’s Day vibrations?
Life in song
One of the most universally lauded Broadway hits to make its way West in some time, Broadway in Portland presents A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

A night at the theater is inherently glamorous, and adding in an opportunity for laughter makes this the perfect vehicle to sweep your sweetie off their feet!

The roar of the crowd
If the theater isn’t something you and your honey can agree on, you could go a more playful route. The Portland Trailblazers host the Golden State Warriors right here in Rip City. Cheer on these hometown heroes as they face one of the most formidable teams in the league. Nothing says romance like the thrill of a win and an extra-large hot pretzel with a side of cheese. Plus, you can sneak in some extra smooches as couples vie for a feature on the Kiss Cam!
Sports games can be notoriously noisy, so make sure to also pay attention to your ears in this aggressive sound environment. If your hearing is impacted, whether it’s ear pain or sound distortion, take a few minutes to escape the noise and give your ears a break.
