The artist who crafted pieces from the remnants of his own past love affairs for Party Hat’s newest art gallery, Exes and Ohhhhhhs: A Relationship Museum invites guests to make relationship capsules from their own objet trouvé. $25–$75, Party Hat

Local author and award-winning food writer Hsiao-Ching Chou discusses her new cookbook Chinese Soul Food. Chou is a beloved cooking instructor, warming the hearts of many through her expertise of soup dumplings and mu shu pork.

Dream Date Sing Along
Keep the Valentine vibes going one day longer with a sing-along featuring classic teenage heartthrobs, from boy bands like N'Sync to more contemporary chart-toppers solo like Bruno Mars. As with most Central Cinema sing-alongs, tickets disappear quickly. If you can’t snag them before V-Day, pop into the theater for an appropriately romantic showing of Moonstruck or Before Sunrise instead. $14, Central Cinema

Judah and The Lion
What is more alluring than a genre-blending band?  Folk, hip-hop, and rock converge on Judah and the Lion's album Folk Hop N' Roll,  producing chart-topping tracks like, "Take It All Back". The Nashville-natives will have you swaying to some real resonant folk sounds on the Seattle stop of their Going to Mars Tour. $28, Showbox SoDo
