If you've missed all the hearts, candy and flowers surrounding you at the grocery store for the past month, then I'll let you in on a little secret: It's Valentine's Day.
And no matter whether you're single, attached or somewhere in between, we've got all the weekend's Valentine's happenings laid out for you in our events lists here.
One of those you won't want to miss is the Va Va Valentine's show featuring the Savannah Sweet Tease Burlesque Troupe and the band Lovely Locks at The Jinx. Comedy, music and scantily clad ladies make for an all-around entertaining night.
You'd have to be totally oblivious to have missed all the stories, interviews and this week's DO cover on the Savannah Book Festival. Free Festival Day is Saturday, and it's your chance to meet a plethora of bestselling authors, buy books and have them signed. You don't want to miss this!
Music fans have a great weekend ahead, as is often the case in Savannah, but we'll point out two shows you may want to get in on. Art Garfunkel will present an intimate evening of songs and stories this weekend at Dollhouse Productions. The Valentine's Day show sold out so fast, his management decided to add a second show on Saturday. There are still tickets available for that one as of now, but you may want to hurry.
Since you can only see Art on Saturday if you didn't get tickets fast, fill your Friday evening with the debut show of a new local band, COEDS. This grouping may be new, but you'll likely see some familiar faces from Savannah's music scene during this free show at Graveface Records and Curiosities. Read more from Unplugged's Bill Dawers.
Classical music fans can hear a world-class violinist and support local young musicians with the Savannah Friends of Music concert Sunday afternoon. This nonprofit donates its time and money to nurture young musical talent in the area and support local professional music organizations, so your money will not only get you a great experience, it goes to a good cause.
If you are more in the mood for theater, Savannah has you more than covered there, with a trifecta of fantastic offerings: AWOL's "Consequences", SCAD's "Machinal" and Armstrong Masquers' "Reasons to be Pretty." Take your pick. Better yet, take in one each night this weekend!
CinemahSavannah once again brings a film that was here and gone in the blink of an eye. If you missed "The Pretty One" during Savannah Film Festival, you've got another chance to catch it during two Friday showings at Muse Arts Warehouse. Jim Reed of Film Scene has all the details.
Looking for a bargain? The Tybee Island Yard Sale starts bright and early Saturday morning. Get up extra early to grab a pancake breakfast offered at the American Legion. Tybee Tales has all the info.
Finally, the season of St. Patrick's starts now, with the annual Savannah Irish Festival offering two days of music, comedy, dancing and more at the Civic Center. Don't forget the Friday Night Ceili, which is traditional Irish dancing, at the Knights of Columbus on Liberty Street.
We try to offer plenty of options, no matter where your interests lie. If you want the full list, head to our Big Calendar and peruse the options. We think there are plenty of reasons to be smitten with Savannah!
