Valentine’s may be in the past but the love can still be felt with all the amazing events going on city-wide this week! From Family Day winter fun at COP, to a magical night at Theatre Calgary and an inside-look at the animal kingdom at TELUS Spark, there’s a little something for everyone to keep that Vday spark brightly lit.
@ Canada Olympic Park
Let the day slip away at Winsport’s Tube Park during their long weekend hours! You can hit the hills anytime between 10am and 5pm on Family Day this coming Monday, Feb.17th. If you have to miss out, you can satisfy that adrenaline craving during the Park’s regular hours Friday evening 4pm–7:30pm and Saturday through Sunday 10am–5pm.
@ Theatre Calgary
Theatre Calgary’s sensational musical The Louder We Get quickly cast a bright light over YYC’s art scene and has touched the hearts of many. It tells the empowering story of Canadian high school student Marc Hall who fought the Catholic School Board to bring his boyfriend to prom. This show handles very real social injustices with lightheartedness and beautiful artistry, making it both entertaining and educational. Show runs until Feb. 22!
@ The Rec Room
All the way from sunny LA, Set It Off is here to bring the heat at The Rec Room on Feb. 16th at 6:30pm. They bring a unique blend of electronic sounds mingled with loud, riffy rock and roll. They’ll be joined by Capstan, MOBS and Only The Strong making it one killer night of live music you’d be sorry to miss! Bring your bae, bring your crew and rock on!
@ TELUS Spark
Ditch the old dinner and a movie date for an up close and personal look inside the animal kingdom — literally. Body Worlds: Animals Inside Out showcases dissections of once living mammals and aquatic creatures preserved by plastination. It induces the perfect dose of the heebie jeebies, fascination and awe that will most definitely leave you and your date with something to talk about.
@ Willow Park Wine and Spirits
This week, local YYC legend and beer conussier Dave the Beer Guy is running a crash course in barely based beverages — you and your bae will definitely do your homework for this class! In this tasting, explore your relationship with your date by learning about their tastes as you explore the relationship between beer and whisky. Event runs Wednesday, Feb. 19th 7pm–8:30pm.
