Sneak Peek -- SAT 2/14

Okay, I said I'd post Saturday stuff besides my other cheap Valentine's Day suggestions from last year. (I do like the ease and "small footprint" of candy heart jpeg's...)

Thursday stuff coming up...


SAT 2/14

Valentine's Day Pub Crawl
Start at JA Stats, 99 Broad St, Boston (Financial District)
$1 suggested donation -- *Buy your own drinks*

There's a "Flirt Fest" (I think you can still get 2 advance tix for $20), but this is probably a good time whether or not you hook up -- but you might... (More than 400 people went last year.)

For more details check Facebook or the Social Boston Sports site.

SAT 2/14

6 pm to 8 pm.
Port and Chocolate: Tasting
at BRIX Wine Shop, 1284 Washington St, Boston (South End)

A free taste of booze/dessert ain't a bad part of cheap fun. The prices seemed pretty reasonable when I went before...

SAT 2/14

Opening Party w/ Burnt Hills, Baby Jesus Burnout, DJ Ning Nong
at Weirdo Records 844 Mass. Ave in Central

Weirdo Records moved from the propietor's Somerville apartment to a dedicated storefront with a mind-blowing inventory of... weird -- and rare -- records. They opened last Friday, and why not celebrate a new independent record store!? I rushed by last week, but I really wanted to browse around. I could be wrong but it looked like it's mainly records (vinyl). Adventurous music lovers should visit and buy something to support a businessperson who's not afraid to expand.

If you want to hang out on Saturday, send Angela an email to let her know you're coming.

SAT 2/14

Strand of Oaks, Audrey Ryan, and Lewis & Clarke
at Nave Gallery, Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church, 155 Powder House Blvd, Somerville (Teele Sq)

Soft, gentle, well-crafted music. For those who feel like a short walk from Davis Sq for a thoughtful musical experience. Hand-holding and intelligent canoodling are ideal.

SAT 2/14

Boston Horns w/ Barrence Whitfield, Lovewhip
at Johnny D's, 17 Holland St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

I love Barrence Whitfield. If you haven't heard him sing, he's the best singer you've never heard. If you have, you know this guy should be in the pantheon of soul/rock/r&b singers. Lovewhip is pretty awesome too; it's always a party with Lovewhip. I like the Boston Horns too, especially when Whitfield is singing. It's to hard to get funkier and more soulful than this. I don't know about the ladies room, but the men's bathroom is really small. So prepare yourself to get somewhere else to do the nasty...

SAT 2/14

"Total Eclipse of the Heart: The 80s Love Song Sing-Along"
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline

Sing-a-longs are fun events if you can embrace the moment and have a good time – whether you're feeling ironic or not. Maybe it's a good way to laugh at cheesy pop-song love or fall in love all over again -- with bigger hair...

SAT 2/14

Athena's Players present: "The Vagina Monologues"
at Tsai Performance Center, 685 Comm Ave, Boston (BU campus)

Every year around February, there's a production to celebrate the other V-Day... It's usually a benefit show as seen by this old flyer.

Also at 7pm on FRI 2/13.
