Celebrate Valentine’s Day, Fremont

By Sean Keeley · February 10th, 2012 · 14 Comments

If you somehow don’t know that Valentine’s Day is Tuesday, February 14th, now you know. And if you have someone who you should be spending Valentine’s Day with, then you better get your butt in gear.

Here’s some Fremont-area ideas to get you started:

The first ever Cupid’s Undie Run, which benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation, happens Saturday. Learn more about it here. Given that we have the Solstice Parade every year, the sight of people running around in their underwear should be no biggie.

On Monday, Sound Mind and Body Gym is hosting a wine and chocolate tastingfrom 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Join Kelly at SM&B for a special Valentine’s Day Treat event with Theo Chocolate and wine from Shop Agora. Fitness coordinators will be giving information on the health benefits of certain food and fitness tips. This event is open to all members and non-members.

The Fremont Abbey is hosting a Valentine’s Day themed Round on Tuesday night. For this show you can expect some fancy tables for you and your date including special package deals with a bottle of good Washington wine and local dessert included, very ‘romantic’ (ie. good!) music, poetry, and live painting.

For those who want their Valentine’s experience to be literal, check out “See Me Naked,” the new one-woman show at West of Lenin. See Me Naked is an interactive comedy that explores personal boundaries and feelings relating to being naked, both literally and symbolically. Following a striptease fail, an embarrassed amateur burlesque dancer opens up to her audience about why exposing herself publicly is so difficult and so important for her to do. What starts as a comic monologue soon becomes a dialogue when she begins to question members of the audience about their own feelings regarding being naked.

And for all your obvious Valentine’s Day gift-buying needs, make sure you stop in see the following (via Fremont Chamber):

The Obvious: Bellefleur Lingerie, Theo Chocolate, Petals Flowers, Essenza, 509 Wines, Fremont Mischief Distillery

Cards & Funny Gifts: Portage Bay Goods, Not A Number Cards & Gifts
