With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, and an estimated $17.6 billion being spent on candy, flowers and jewelry this season, anyone not living under a rock is headed straight for the deep end of this year’s heart-shaped pool.
For locals who enjoy diving right in, finding something to do for Valentine’s Day should be simple. Pick up some cookies, reserve a prix fixe menu for two, and find some warm, fuzzy music to cap the night.
Those who prefer to belly flop in protest, however, might enjoy the Love Gone Bad anti-Valentine’s Day fundraiser.
The event, set for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, will feature songs by Memphis bluesman Andy Cohen and stories from Memphis transplant Kathy McGregor. Proceeds will benefit 7Hills homeless center.
Besides a lighthearted evening of poking fun at love and the things that go wrong in relationships, ‘Love Gone Bad’ will include light hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
Tickets are $15 per person or $5,000 per couple (don’t worry, we’ve been assured there won’t be any spies in the parking lot) and can be reserved at tellervision.org or by calling 479-871-4875.
