There are plenty of pre-fixe dinners to choose from around town, but there are also a number of non-traditional ways to love this February.

If it’s a little excitement you’re craving, check out the Burlesque-a-Pades at The Metro Gallery, which features variety acts from New York City. Expect music, magic, comedy, and more. February 16th at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15, 18 and up.

Yeezus himself, Kayne West, comes to the Baltimore Arena. Rumor has it that his Valentine, Kim Kardashian, will be in attendance and there will be no opening act. February 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available on Ticketmaster and range from $46.50-126.50.

Check out this hipster dance party for a good cause, as The Crown and The Gold Bar will feature soul, funk, and girl group tunes, plus a photo booth and decorations. Suggested donations of $5-8 will go to Moveable Feast, which helps put food on the table for people in Maryland with AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses. February 14, 9 p.m.

Sometimes you just want to drink, and Alexander’s Tavern in Fells Point has you covered on February 14th with 1/2-price bottles of wine, $5 cupid punch, and $5 fabulously single martini.

Are you a cynic about this holiday? Then head over to MaGerk’s in Federal Hill for their second annual “Valentine’s Day Sucks” party. The bar will offer $1.50 domestic bottles, $4 Fireball, and $5 Jameson shots. February 14, 7 p.m.-close.

Yet another skeptic’s party is being thrown down the street as Mad River Bar & Grill hosts “Cupid is Stupid” with $2 Miller Lites, $5 bombs, and $5 happy drinks (their house drink made with cherry or raspberry vodka, Sprite, and cranberry juice). February 13th, 9 p.m.-close.

Humans aren’t the only ones feeling the love as the National Aquarium hosts Date Night, where couples can enjoy crowd-free exhibits, live music, dessert, wine and beer, and a champagne toast. February 15, 7-10 p.m., $99/couple for non-members, $69/couple for members, 21 and up.

And, of course, Baltimore magazine hosts its very own "Top Singles" party next Thursday, February 6, at Langermann's in Canton. Guests can enjoy food, specialty cocktails, craft beer, a fortune teller, and music from DJ Kopec. Tickets are $40 and proceeds benefit BARCS.
