FOR THE FUN-LOVING PAIR:

Plus, who doesn’t love dancing after having a bit to drink? Kids are welcome, so patron’s choice whether this event will be a child-friendly dance party or a drunken good old time. So put on your cowboy boots and start practicing.

FOR THE DADDY-DAUGHTER DUO:

Be prepared for a night full of fun with your kiddo with scheduled activities and yummy treats. When you register online on their website, your ticket purchase guarantees you a table and a meal during the event. This event fills up fast, so be sure to register early.

FOR THE CREATIVE COUPLE:
ROMANCE YOUR DAMN SELF

This event is none other than a true self-love party just waiting for you to let your creative juices flow. The Rainbow Center presents Romance Your Damn Self, featuring local spoken word artists Nic Masangkay, Donato Fatuesi, Jade Dynasty and J Mase III. After their performances, the stage will be opened up to event goers to share their own work or read their most-beloved writings. The North End Social Club’s goal for the event is for patrons to not only celebrate self-love, but to divulge into the local artist community.

FOR THE BEST OF FRIENDS:
BUBBLES 101 AT THE BLUE OCTOPUS

Looking for something to do on “Gal-entines Day?” Look no further, for Bubbles 101 at The Blue Octopus art gallery and champagne bar in Point Ruston is perfect for you and your best friend — especially if you both love to drink. Bubbles 101 is a free event meant to educate all patrons on the ins and outs of champagne. But if you can’t make it to this event, stop in during their regular hours: Monday through Thursday 2–10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday noon–11 p.m. The Blue Octopus describes itself as a champagne bar that “offers a variety of art, installations, live music and visual performances.” But if you aren’t a fan of champagne, don’t fret — The Blue Octopus also has many ciders, beers, wines and hand-crafted cocktails waiting for you to taste
