Ten Best Valentine's Day Parties and Shows in Broward and Palm Beach
4. The Slackers and Stop the Presses
8 p.m. Friday, February 14, at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave, Miami. Free admission. Visit churchillspub.com.
"Jamaican rock 'n' roll" meets good, old-fashioned ska at this event at Churchill's. It sounded so good, we had to let a Miami event slide in on this list. Just don't lean against the walls in that place -- you may get pregnant.
5. Jo Koy
8 p.m. Friday, February 14, at Palm Beach Improv at 550 S. Rosemary Ave., Suite 250, West Palm Beach. 21 and over. Tickets cost $25 to $54.72, plus fees. Visit palmbeachimprov.com.
If you prefer your comedy medium rare instead of roasted (see what we did there?), get on down to the Palm Beach Improv to see Jo Koi in action. He may just throw in more hilarious stories about his mom and son to make your family seem normal.

6. The Anti-Valentine's Day Affair
9 p.m. Friday, February 14, at Living Room Bar & Lounge at the W, 401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $15 to $1,000. Visit fllnightlife.com/wfll.
Screw Valentine's Day. Well, just for this event, at least. Living Room hosts its first anti-Valentine's Day occasion for single folks. Couples are the outcasts here. All must don wristbands in either green, yellow, or red. Green means you're ready to mingle, yellow implies that you're on the fence, and red means you're taken. Other parts of the festivities include music by DJ Richie Rich, champagne specials, and a signature Valentine's Day cocktail, Blush, from Living Room.
7. Grown Folks Nite of Southern Soul, Old School, and R&B with Lebrado and DJ Beware
8:30 p.m. Friday, February 14, at Gaines Park, 1501 N. Australian Ave., West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $45 to $55 plus fees. Visit eventbrite.com.
Remember K-Ci and Jojo, whose "All My Life" dominated Power 96's Power Love Hour? Well, they won't be playing at Gaines Park, but their little brother Lebrado will, joined by DJ Beware and with R&B tunes smooth enough to melt butter. This affair will get you in a baby-making mood. Don't forget the afterparty at Celebrity Restaurant and Lounge.
