5. Second annual Love Stinks Party
At the risk of infecting Charlie's readers with a J. Geils Band ear-worm, we'll mention the anti-Valentine's Day fete -- the Love Stinks Party -- from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. tonight (Thursday) at Whiskey Blue and Living Room at W Fort Lauderdale. There's no cover charge for the singles party and parking is $5 with validation. Both bars are serving specialty Valentine's Day-themed drinks, like the "candy heart" and "love potion #9", through the end of February.
4. A Valentine's Day You Can Look Forward To
The Blind Monk recognizes that Valentine's Day can be an anxious, uneasy affair for some. Their Valentine's Day wine tasting is designed to put couples, singles, or "whatever your affiliation" at ease with a champagne reception followed by five wine tastings, each of which will be paired with a small bite, like white-wine-poached shrimp and goat cheese and veal meatballs. The cost is $35 per person. The event is 6:45 tonight (Thursday). RSVP at 561-833-3605.
