There’s only five business days between you and a holiday weekend. For me, that means five days to start feeling good about putting on a bathing suit in Cancun (yikes!). Our social calendar to make the next week fly, below.
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow — but don’t worry! It’s not too late to get your a great gift for your date. With Ode à la Rose’s same-day delivery service, you can still send your special someone a gorgeous floral arrangement that you can personalize with a custom note or printed photo. If you feel like going the extra mile, you can even send a thoughtful add-on with your bouquet, like an Ode à la Rose candle created in fragrance capital of the world, Grasse, France, or a box of macarons from NYC-based Macaron Café. More info here.
Being single on Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to suck. If you don’t have a romantic dinner date, head to NoMo Soho for a night of partying with NYC’s hottest singles. Enjoy an open champagne bar, heart-themed cocktails, small bites, and live music from DJ Julian O’Keefe. More info here. 9 Crosby St, 6 p.m. to midnight

Valentine’s Day might be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to put away the wine and chocolates. Join oenophile Stefani Jackenthal for an interactive, educational evening where you’ll explore the art of pairing wine chocolate. Consider this the tastiest lesson you’ll ever learn.

Just like wine and chocolate pair exceptionally well together, bacon and bourbon are a match made in heaven as well. Enjoy tastings of both at Bacon & Bourbon 2017. Sip on more than 50 bourbons, ryes, and American whiskeys while snacking on a wide selection of bacon treats. More info here. 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., Astor Center, 399 Lafayette St.
