Your Not-So-Valentine's-Day Valentine's Day Options

You're not ready to fully commit to Valentine's Day. Fortunately, there are options for that. Like Toca Madera, where they're launching a new card game called "We're Not Really Strangers" to break the ice. And Tiki-No, which will give everyone candy, chocolate-filled martini glasses and love-themed karaoke. And a tiki bar.

Feb 14, 5pm-1am, Toca Madera, 8450 W 3rd St, 323-852-9400; Feb 14, 5pm-2am, Tiki No, 4657 Lankershim Blvd, North Hollywood, 818-766-0116

Oh, Just Snoop Dogg Playing 2 Chainz in Basketball

It's NBA All-Star Weekend, a frenzy of hoops-related activities. Among them, a basketball game between West Coast and East Coast artists, led by captains Snoop Dogg and 2 Chainz, featuring players like Fabolous and Waka Flocka Flame at 747 Warehouse. Tickets are being released at surprise retailers. Godspeed.

Prince vs Bowie. And You Have to Decide.

There's a battle going down at the Viceroy's poolside on Friday night. In one corner, you've got David Bowie and the Beatles. In the other, you've got Prince and Michael Jackson. In the middle, you've got a bunch of people dancing silently in headphones. Their movements will be strange, but effective.

Feb 16, 8pm-1am, $15 online/$20 at door, The Viceroy, 1819 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, 310-260-7500, tickets here

FATTY SHACK

Your Early Morning Mooshu Pork Burritos and Sichuan Tater Tots

You can generally expect to eat well when brunch starts at a place called Little Fatty. What you might not expect: Mooshu pork burritos. And fried Hainan chicken and waffles. And Sichuan tater tots. And Chinese donuts. And Bloody Marys. Okay, you expected Bloody Marys.

In the Future, All Movies Will Look Like This
VIRTUAL REALITY SHOW

In the Future, All Movies Will Look Like This

February, 2018. You walk into the Ace's Segovia Hall to find it transformed into a virtual reality film festival filled with Voyagers, the world's first full-motion VR chairs. And there you will sit for three immersive films touching on intergalactic travel and alien abduction. But man, those chairs.
