Iron Gate’s ‘Tunnel of Love’ Valentine’s Day bar returned on February 1st. Last year’s two-week pop up was so popular, they decided to bring it back for this year’s holiday. Spirits Manager Nick Farrell and Chef Tony Chittum are drawing on inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe – adding a bit of darkness while celebrating a local romantic author – complete with cocktail and food menus divided into two categories: ‘heart’ vs. ‘heartbreak.’ The carriageway bar decor will follow suit with red, black and burgundy flowers and feathers (a nod to “The Raven”).
At 7:00 p.m on Wilson Blvd in Arlington, thousands of people will gather along the route to watch the range of floats, bands, decorated vehicles and marchers in this year’s Mardi Gras Parade. It’s great fun, and you should enter your group, business, or nonprofit in the parade. Everybody who participates loves this event.
The most romantic day of the year is here and local restaurants will have many ways to celebrate the holiday. From elegant, multi-course dinners with memorable ambiance to shareable cocktails and conversation with a friend squad, BRABO, Firefly, Radiator, Urbana, and Zentan have the perfect celebrations to express both romantic and platonic love

With 10 Tony® nominations including Best Musical, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is a hit. This hilarious smash tells the story of two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare keeps getting all the hits. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the two set out to write the world’s very first musical. This show is fantastic. A definite must-see.
A new Indian spot opened up in Gallery Place. Karma is cranking out modern Indian fare that could please just about any diet. Vegan and carnivores alike can enjoy their delicious apps and entrees paired with a custom drink. Sounds like an ideal Friday night, no?

This traditional ceremony signifies prosperity, good luck, and good fortune. Guests can also enjoy Kung Fu demos from martial arts professionals, while sipping complimentary hot tea.
