Want to Meet Someone Before Valentine's Day?

By Ellen McCarthy

The drugstore aisles are awash in Pepto-Bismol pink and the diamond industry is turning up the volume on its love=consumerism coercion. Valentine's Day is coming!

We promised to keep you in the loop on pre-VDay events, so here are a few to add to your calendar.

On Wednesday night, Dupont Circle's Science Club will play host to Artomatic's monthly happy hour from 6 to 8 p.m. This month, Artomatic hosts a cocktail session -- a chance to get in the mood for the group's three-day Valentine extravaganza.

Organizers at Sixth and I Synagogue want to help you find the right one so much, they're bringing in an expert: on both Feb. 6 and 7 night, relationship guru Norman Blumenthal will be stopping by to offer some advice. After Friday night's dinner and services ($15), Blumenthal will give a talk titled "Finding the Right One." On Saturday (no cover), there will be an interactive workshop called "Dating and Relationship Scenarios." Dessert receptions will follow both.

ThingsToDo DC is back with another Valentine's Day warm-up session on Friday, Feb. 6. You'll be on the waterfront for dinner at Tony & Joe's and then off to a Georgetown nightclub for late-night dancing. Your $49 cover includes a three-course dinner, and promoters are expecting a couple hundred singles. Guys only (it's sold out for women) can register at

And don't forget about your chance to post your six-word Valentine's Day missives. We kicked off the call for submissions last week, and we've gotten over 150 so far. Keep them coming!
