If you just realized you’ve forgotten to get dinner reservations, check out our tips from local chefs for preparing Valentine’s dinner at home.
Pull it off, and your sweetheart will think you planned it all along.
If you can’t pull it off, earn your way out of the dog house with a trip to Sarah’s Bakery on Bridge Road. They’ve finally brought croissant doughnuts to West Virginia. (Just don’t call them “cronuts,” or the inventor will hit you with a cease and desist letter. I speak from experience.)
Anyway, here’s what’s happening this weekend around Charleston:
- On Sunday, The Steel Wheels will bring their back porch music to West Virginia Public Radio’s “Mountain Stage.” Show begins at 7 p.m. on Sunday, and tickets are still available. What’s back porch music? Glad you asked.
- Soul/jazz group Lake Street Drive also is playing on Sunday’s “Mountain Stage.” (Story by my arch nemesis Bill Lynch.)
- The Clay Center’s “Gallery Divided II,” a tongue-in-cheek showdown between art professors at West Virginia University and Marshall, opens this weekend.
- If you’re so inclined, Disney on Ice’s “Princesses and Heroes” show comes to the Charleston Civic Center this weekend.
If you have an event you’d like to see included in future editions of The Weekender, please drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll do my best to include you.
Have a good weekend!
