(Feb. 14-29) Love in Art
Happy Valentine’s Day! If you want to get intimate with a few masterpieces the National Gallery of Art has Love in Art this afternoon. The lecture reveals the romantic stories that inspired romantic works.

(Feb. 14) Feets of Love
For some Valentine’s jams Washington’s own The Sweater Set performs songs of love and love lost tonight at The Dunes Gallery in Northwest Washington. If the music’s not enough there will be a mime that tells a love story using only her feet.

(Feb. 14) Anybody want a peanut?
For a little romance on the big screen the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse screens The Princess Bride tonight. You can join a princess, a Spanish fencing master, a short Sicilian and André the Giant for some fairy tale love preceded by wine tasting and stand-up comedy.

Music: “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” by Bill Frisell
