Regardless of whether or not you think Valentine's Day is a time to spend QT with that special someone or simply a regular day similar to the other 355, there is something for you to do this weekend. By the way, Valentine's Day is on Sunday the 14th for the men who might have forgot.
First off, there are numerous restaurants and bars around the Sloop that have specials associated with Valentine's Day. We will be heading off to Zapatista to celebrate love day which sounds like a good idea to us (Tequila + Mexican Food = Love). If you're down to go somewhere else, check out our review of last years Valentine's day at Cafe Bionda.
If you're looking to do something a little different, a little more low key and probably pretty entertaining, then head on over to Wabash Tap on Saturday at 8pm to play the popular 60's game show, The Dating Game. Hilarity will probably ensue and prizes will be given out.
If hearts and pink and chocolate and roses aren't your thing the auto show will be going on (see post below). We would also encourage people to go to Chinatown on Sunday (2/14) for the 2010 Lunar Parade:
The Chinatown New Year Parade celebrating the Lunar New Year, “Year of the TIGER 4708” will include marching bands, floats, lion teams, a100’ Mystical Dragon, and Miss Friendship Ambassador. Please join us to welcome the New Year as we convey “Gung Hay Fat Choi” to all in attendance.
Parade step-off time is 1:00PM though there are other activities starting as early as 11:30AM.
Enjoy the weekend!
