Love Me Do

Events to get you in the mood (or reinforce your cynicism) this Valentine's weekend.


He loves me...   

Pacha; 2/12 at 10 p.m.; 618 W. 46th St., nr. Eleventh Ave.; 212-209-7500
There's more than one way to sweat this weekend, so heat it up on the dance floor. The Russian house-music giant will be mixing it up with tribal beats for a special Valentine's Day Ball. Don't forget your red glowsticks.

Bear Hands
In Vino; 2/13 at 7:30 p.m.; 215 E. 4th St., nr. Ave. B; 212-539-1011
Lead singer and former Bridezilla PA Dylan Rau started Bear Hands as a way to best a romantic rival. He gave up after realizing that he was a lover, not a fighter, but the indie band of Wesleyan alums remains strong, playing a Valentine's weekend show in an intimate wine bar.

Ginuwine = Sexual chocolate.  

S.O.B.'s; 2/14 at 7 p.m.; 204 Varick St., at W. Houston St.; 212-243-4940
Fellas, if you need some help getting your ladies in the mood, look no further than the sweet R&B stylings of Elgin Baylor Lumpkin. Tickets are priced per couple and include a free CD, three-course meal, and a dessert cocktail, which we truly hope is made with Adult Chocolate Milk (tagline: "Re-taste Your Youth at 40 Proof"). We hear Mr. L is quite fond of it.

Love in the Parlors
Merchant's House Museum; 2/14 at 7 p.m.; 29 E. 4th St., nr. Bowery; 212-777-1089
Merchant’s House provides some class with a 75-minute program of romantic songs and arias in its double parlors, performed by members of the Bond Street Euterpean Singing Society. Bonus: Maybe one of their famous haunted ghosts will appear, providing you with extra reason to snuggle.

Valentine's Day Dinner With the Chairman of the Board
City Winery; 2/14 at 8 p.m.; 155 Varick St., at Vandam St.; 212-608-0555
Let Ol' Blue Eyes woo your date for you, when City Winery pays tribute to his vast repertoire with a special wine and music pairing. Impersonator Joe Politi and his fifteen-piece orchestra will be performing Frank Sinatra’s greatest hits.

A Very Red Headed Step Child Valentines Day
Comix; 2/14 at 8 p.m.; 353 W. 14th St., nr. Ninth Ave.; 212-524-2500
Forget oysters. Folks in the know swear by laughter as the best aphrodisiac. And lucky for you, Comix is serving it up on a platter with a night hosted by Joe De Rosa and Jared Logan, and featuring Wil Sylvince (Bad Boys of Comedy) and Russ Meneve (Comedy Central).
