On Sunday, Feb. 14, the Legends Theater at Route 66 Casino presents a concert by romantic balladeers and masters of a capella ruminations on love and life, Boyz II Men. An R&B group (now a trio, formerly and originally a quartet) with an affinity for soulful musical wanderings through the heart of human affection, Boyz II Men first made the scene in the 1990s with radio-friendly hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day,” an epic tune to forever love they recorded with super-chanteuse Mariah Carey. In the years since they rose to the top of the pops, one member, Michael McCary departed the ensemble, leaving an essential trio comprised of tenors Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris as well as baritone Nathan Morris. Together, these three still bring the flavor of love to life as they tour around a gratefully enchanted planet of men and women. Tickets for this all-ages performance range in price from $35-$70 while romance fills the air beginning at 8pm. (August March)

You've done the right thing by coming to me. While traveling in the East (Tramway), I met an initiate of the Aghori—definitively the most erotic of the Yogic mystical schools. This strange hermit, huddled in a corner under an overpass, told me a secret that I swore I'd only share in the pages of the Alibi.
Here goes: When it comes to getting those amorous juices flowing, there's nothing quite as titillating as the mating dance of the sexy eel. Yes. And just as luck would have it, the ABQ BioPark Aquarium will be hosting a special adults-only event from 6-8pm on Valentine's Day—That's a Moray!—a guided tour through the “erotic and often curious romantic rituals of aquatic animals.” Obviously, my mystic friend gets around.Show your special friend you still got a freak streak with a night of marine-based debauchery. Tickets are $30 per voyeur for the “Fish Love” tour, appetizers and one adult beverage. $45 gets you all that and dinner at the Shark Reef Cafe. (Joshua Lee)
