No matter how hard you might try, it's hard not to notice that something is happening today. Practically every streetcorner in the city is packed with people selling cellophane-wrapped baskets or red teddy bears or pink bouquets. When LAist got to work, there were chocolates on our desk ... from the building management. Ugh, we got valentine'd by building management! No more denial for us. If you're as excited about Valentine's Day as we are, you might try the salve of the Miss Patty Anti-Romance Valentine's Spectacular tonight at the Met Theatre in Hollywood. There will be comedy, a bitter poet, scantily-clad dancers, music from Colleen (Vitamin C) Fitzpatrick and cheap champagne in plastic cups. Tickets are $12. Isn't that a small price to pay for not having to choose between "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "The Bachelorette"?
