Love Sux Party at Howl at the Moon (Friday, free before 10 p.m.)

From drink specials with titles like Ex-boyfriends and F-bombs to plenty of Love Sux games, this is the perfect place for grinches to spend their Valentine's Day night. Bring in a mutilated photo of your ex to get in for free before 10 p.m.
Dance, Baby, Dance at Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place (Friday, free)

Word Sound Healing Day at Solstice Center (Friday, free)
To help heal the planet, people around the world will gather today to send, in the words of the organizers, "a sonic Valentine to Mother Earth." Want to feel the love? Join in this guided group chant led by Andi and Jonathan Goldman.
