Always Something to Love

Via Wikipedia

“When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore!” We all know that little Dean Martin ditty, and thus, it's a good way to go into the whole sliver of lofty shenanigans that goes with celebrating Valentine's Day. Since ABQ has so many offerings, here a few things to do. First, if you want to get your loved one a new pet kitten or cute puppy dog, all the city shelters will be having $14 adoptions tomorrow and Saturday, Feb. 14. That's just one way to share the love.

Or, on Valentine's Day, head to Hotel Albuquerque (800 Rio Grande NW) for an International Night of Passion, during which there'll be giveaways, live music, Valentine's-themed entertainment and more. That starts at 6pm and goes pretty late. Tickets range from $45 to $10,000, depending on how many people are in your party.

And if Valentine's Day makes you wanna barf, head to Los Griegos Library (1000 Griegos NW) for an Un-Valentine Day Party, featuring unromantic board games, Un-Valentine crafts and Un-Heart cookie decorating. That's also on Saturday, Feb. 14, from 10:30am to 1pm, and is completely free. Not a bad way to start the day off before pretending you're in love and whatnot.
