Love is in the air, as Valentine's Day aims its arrows of romance throughout the week leading up to Feb. 14. Get in on one or more of these amorous outings.
No Valentine's Day is complete without chocolate, and in Yountville, the Napa Valley Museum is making an exhibit out of the confection with "The Art of Chocolate." On Saturday, Feb. 10, the museum hosts a free celebration of wine and chocolate courtesy of several Napa Valley chocolatiers.
Since research has proven that couples who laugh together stay together, you may want to "Laugh & Celebrate Love" with a pre-Valentine's standup comedy show at the Laugh Cellar in Santa Rosa on Feb. 10. Headlining the show is physician and nationally touring comedian Priyanka Wali and San Francisco comic Emily Van Dyke.
Another sure-fire winner for date night is going to the movies. This Valentine's Day, Petaluma Film Alliance is offering a special romantic program for its weekly cinema series with a screening of the 2017 indie hit Unleashed, in which a San Francisco app designer reevaluates her outlook on dating and men after her pets are turned into two perfect guys. Writer and director Finn Taylor will be on hand to answer all your questions in a discussion following the film.
