We've got you covered, whoever you are. Our guide to Valentine's Day events lists romantic restaurants, cruises and parties, including a ball in which Gone with the Wind gowns and wedding dresses are part of the dress code. If that movie makes you roll your eyes or you'd like to shoot Cupid with one of his own arrows, you have co-conspirators who are ready for February 14. If you've been dumped, you can drown your sorrows in a mass chorus of Guns N' Roses songs, organized by the same snarky wits behind the Men in Tights Super Bowl viewing a couple of weeks ago.
For gifts, you can easily do better than Walgreens, Safeway or generic gift cards. Check our Valentine's Day gift list for presents that are thoughtful, seductive and locally made.
