It's that time again - Cupid will be drawing back his bow and overcharging for candy and flowers creating love-struck hearts everywhere. Are you and your sweetheart looking for something fun to do for Valentine's Day? We've got a snapshot of the many events happening around town all weekend. For all you ANTI-VALENTINE'S DAY folks out there, the first one is for you (and me)!
Call it what you want, anti-Valentine's Day, or Single's Awareness Day - Katy O'Ferrell's Publick House will be having a little soiree for the less googly-eyed types out there. Whether you are single or coupled up Katy O's invites you to enjoy drink specials and specially crafted cocktails in a decidedly less heart- shaped doily coated environment. The party kicks off at happy hour on February 14th.
For the more traditional types out there the annual KRCU Valentine's Day Party at the Isle Casino is a must attend event 6:30-11p Friday, February 10th. The Public Radio fundraiser features entertainment by crowd pleasers, Shades of Soul, a dinner buffet and cocktail hour.
