That lovely-dovey feeling is in the air. Whether you call it Valentine’s Day or Single’s Awareness Day, February 14 is almost here. If you’re in the mood for, searching for, or perhaps trying to avoid love this week, Sacramento365 has curated a handful of outings that get you ready for the Hallmark holiday.
Sutter Street Theatre
February 10-14 | Fri & Sat 8pm; Sun 4pm; Mon & Tues 7pm
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters throughout their lives. The result? An endearing and comical production about destiny and lasting friendship.
Ultimate Terror Scream Park
February 14 | Fri, Sat & Tues 7pm-11pm
Looking for an unconventional way to celebrate love day? Grab your sweetheart or your friends and see if you can make it out of a massive, pitch-black haunted house!
Casablanca: 75th Anniversary Screening
February 14 | Tues 7pm
This Valentine’s Day, watch two of Hollywood’s all-time favorites Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman find love in the Maghreb in this classic film.
Liv On Project: Olivia Newtown-John, Beth Nielsen, Amy Sky
February 14 | Tues 7:30pm
The LIV ON Project and CD came to fruition the way many of the best collaborations do…via a series of conversations between friends about what matters most in life: Love, loss, hope and healing. In this case, however, the three friends happen to be international star Olivia Newton-John, Canadian singer/songwriter Amy Sky and Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Beth Nielsen Chapman.
February 14 | Tues 8pm
Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves has the whole package–a powerful and flexible voice, improvisational chops, rhythmic virtuosity, a well developed artistic sensibility, and a masterful flair for storytelling.
Vicious Valentine’s Variety Show
February 15 | Wed 7pm-9pm
Leave your conversation hearts and red roses at home. Spend the night after V-day doing something steamy, dark, dangerous, and naughty with The Darling Clementines.
Cupid’s Revenge Pub Crawl
Starts at Cornerstone Cafe
February 18 | Sat 3pm
If you enjoy cocktails, shenanigans, and socializing then the Cupid’s Revenge Pub Crawl is for you. There will also be a costume contest with a prize for best dressed “Anti-Cupid” costume.
