It's Valentine's Day!
We leave it up to you if you choose to celebrate this pink and red hued holiday of chocolate, flowers, cards, and so on. If you haven't booked a dinner out to wow your lover...uh, good luck with that. You might want to hit up the Frysmith event at the Verdugo Bar or stay home and order pizza and watch the Olympics (or some of the movies with our picks for Best Sex Scenes), you play it how you want.

Music in the Mountains @Franklin Canyon
Play an indigenous instrument? Bring a didgeridoo, drum, flute, clapper stick or a shaker. The goal is to connect with the spirit of nature as you focus on meditative rhythms.

Martini Fundraiser @Lola's
This evening from 5:30-8:30 p.m. drink martini's at Lola's in West Hollywood for a good cause. It's a fundraiser for the Amanda Foundation, an organization that's all about the love for our four-legged friends. They explain: "In Latin the name 'Amanda' means worthy of love, so our charity is named not for a person but for our philosophy towards our Dog and Cat companions. They are worthy of our love and protection. For over 30 years our mission has been to rescue as many loyal pals from the shelters and then find them loving new homes. At the same time we endeavor to educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter in order to reduce pet overpopulation." Tonight's event includes a pet psychic, silent auction, heartbreaker martinis, wine and soft drinks, and hors d'œuvre. To RSVP call (310) 550-0101 before 6 p.m. ($35)
