Might your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day evening include a wine and cheese tasting , a unique portrait session and a semi-private tour of  Philadelphia’s spiffy new  high tech DIY shared workspace?

If so, you’re going to want to spend Valentine’s Day with NextFab, a special event hosted by facility founder Evan Malone and  his equally busy, restaurant and bar-tending  wife,  Jill Weber.

Drawing  attention to the new, much larger and loaded with gear NextFab facility at 2025 Washington Ave., this geekfully romantic evening begins  with professional photographer Rachel Lynn Kotkoskie capturing your photo. The image will then be laser-etched on the premises onto a porcelain ceramic tile as your keepsake takeaway.

While the etching work is underway, you can learn about the process and take a tour of NextFab’s art and technology studio facilities hosted by Malone. Then join Weber for wine tasting  and cheese chomping,  also a  good way to sample what her nearby (15th and South Street) Jet Bar is all about.

Two sessions will be held, the first starting at 6 p.m., the second at 7 p.m., each limited to five couples. Hey, maybe you’ll meet and make some new, like-minded friends out of the deal, too. The package costs $60 per couple. Sign up here.
