Happy Valentine’s Day!
In addition to being the day of the biggest holiday taken over by a greeting card company and a diamond monopoly, today is the tenth anniversary of V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day was started by Eve Ensler, the creator of The Vagina Monologues. You might choose to celebrate by taking in a showing of that show — see details for the current Pittsburgh production here. There’s a special $10 discount today (different from the discount I mentioned in the ealier post): Call 412.431.2489 and mention "Wednesday special." The show has been extended through March 9, so if you have other plans with your sweetie tonight, you can catch the show later.
Today is also Quirkyalone Day (for those who prefer being alone to dating for the sake of being in a couple). I plan to celebrate with a nice glass of Big House Red wine and a viewing of Casino Royale.
I hope your Valentine’s Day is happy!
