Valentine's Day, hold the chocolates

Valentine's Day is without doubt a great excuse to try out that new restaurant or cocktail bar that just opened around the corner. But there's also an abundance of Valentine-themed events you may not want to miss. Whether you and your date prefer art, theater, film or - yes - the ukulele, there's something to get out and do beyond pure consumption.

Not your usual Valentine's deals

You can't swing around a bag of chalky candy hearts this time of year without smacking an overpriced prix fixe tasting menu for two. It seems like a waste of space to list the overabundant $75, $125, $199 dollar "deals," so its lucky that there are a few plucky places offering something a little different this Feb. 14th.
