Weekend update: Valentine's Day dates to remember

By Alex Baldinger

Valentine's Day can be seriously overblown, unnecessarily stressful and expensive. But let's not dismiss it outright: What other holiday reminds us that love is a fire that needs stoking? In today's Weekend section, we search far and wide for date ideas that are far from the ordinary while still touching on the cornerstones of coupledom: togetherness, adventure and, of course, chocolate.

Here's what else is inside the pages of today's Weekend:

Hop from the '20s to the '30s to the '90s this weekend. Plus: Tuvan throat singing, over-the-top Israeli power rock and the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown.

• Super Bowl XLV: Where to watch the Packers and Steelers throw down.

Morcheeba's original lineup is once again intact, and performing at the 9:30 Club on Thursday.

• Other shows in town this week: Gang of Four; the aforementioned Israeli power rockband, Monotonix; Lost in the Trees; and David Wilcox.

• Stephanie Merry previews the month of February in theater.

See the forests for the trees at some of Washington's nearby national forests.

• You know those moments at a family gathering when you think, "What if a photographer could see how wonderful/crazy my family is?" This is your exhibit.

• The bigger movies opening this weekend: "Sanctum" and "The Illusionist."
