Judging by the Twitter questions I’ve been answering this morning, not everyone has squared away Valentine’s plans. Check out our Valentine’s Guide for last second suggestions or try this suggestion on for size.
Head down to Verde on 13th Street, and pick up the Barbuzzo Budino for two pack for $15. Then cross 13th Street and grab a bouquet of flowers from Spike’s Greens flower shop pop-up in Duross and Langel. Add some Yards Philly Pale Ale soap and you’ll go from Valentine’s Day zero to hero.

On Tuesday, February 12th Smokin’ Betty’s and Devil’s Alley will host the 6th “Puppy Love Valentines Party” at the 23rd Street Armory (22 S 23rd Street). The event benefits the Pennsylvania SPCA and offers animal lovers a chance to hang with the pets and enjoy a night of comfort food.
Cocktails, appetizers from Smokin Betty’s and Devil’s Alley as well a sweets from Ms. Goody Cupcake are included in the $40 ticket price. There will also be a silent auction, live music, puppy photo booth, doggie swag bags and pets available for adoption.
For those without a pooch to call a date, the PSPCA will match guests with eligible ‘bachelor and bachelorette’ dogs looking for a home. There will also be a Kitty Korner for those more attracted to felines and even an animal behaviorist to provide consultation at a special “Dog House.”
Puppy Love is open to those 21 and up.

This Saturday, February 9th at 1 p.m. Laurel Hill Cemetary is hosting Til Death Do Us Part: The Love Stories of Laurel Hill, a walking tour inspired by a tory of a woman whose heart, and only her heart is buried in the cemetery. After hearing her and other love stories of the cemetery, head inside for a toasty fireside reception with wine, hot chocolate and hors d’oeuvres. The tour is a very reasonable $20, $18 for students and seniors.
Don’t fill up too completely, because next up is dinner at nearby In Riva. Cozy up and share some of the best pizza around and if there’s anything featuring buratta, order it. Chef Arthur Cavaliere offers our favorite version of that cheesy goodness around.

Even as the final February schedule was being posted online at Cook today, they had one class they were still trying to put together: “A Valentine’s Day To Remember” starring none other than hometown hero (and Top Chef shit-starter) Jen Carroll.
According to Cook, “Jen will be preparing a romantic and delicious multi-course menu for you and that special someone.” And as of right-this-minute, there are still nine tickets left to the February 14th class. So if you (or someone you like a lot, because the class ain’t cheap) are interested, I’d get over there in a hurry and register now.
