That holiday with the hearts

Happy Valentine’s weekend, everybody!

Okay, I know that V-Day is generally a consumeristic ploy to sell a massive amount of heart-shaped candy and greeting cards, not to mention flowers ... but the point behind it all, I think, is to stop and remember the things you love, whether that's a person, a group of people, a dog, a family or just yourself.

The cool thing about this city is that it comes equipped with fun having for all. So whether you're celebrating this weekend, Tuesday or thereafter, here are some things to keep you busy.

First off, get your OKCityCard. It's one of the primary fundraisers for Allied Arts, and February is Allied Arts Month, so it only makes sense. They are $50, which is donated in entirety to Allied Arts.

It's a pretty sweet deal and partners with more than 200 locations around the metro. If you're running low on ideas (or cash), then just peruse the list of discounts at alliedartsokc.com/okcitycard.

Are you a little bookish? Head to Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway at 50 Penn Place, on Tuesday for live music, wine sales, 10 percent off any book with the word “love” in the title and a roaring fireplace.

Cozy in a couple and ready to grow your family? This is your chance to do so. The Central OK Humane Adoption Center at 7500 N. Western is offering a lovable deal: All dogs and cats are free to adopt Saturday and Sunday.

If you feel like getting out on the town tonight, hit up the second annual LOVE on the Plaza. You can expect a kiss cam, lots of local art and some live music. You can even participate in a Valentine's creation contest or take part in a power performance piece hosted by Cole Dewey Design called “The Gay Agenda,” which features two men performing daily routines that a heterosexual couple would perform.

No matter what you decide, show some local love in honor of St. Valentine.

Pet project


Features

If you’ve ever seen the old Disney movie “The Ugly Dachshund,” which features a family of four doxies and a Great Dane, you understand my plight. If you haven’t seen it, view it in case you’re deciding whether to add an ornery, German-bred and alleged hunting dog, aka “weenie dog,” to the family.

Oklahoma’s animal house


Commentary

Louisa McCune-Elmore
In July, I asked Roy Lee Lindsey, executive director of the Oklahoma Pork Council, for a favor — to pick up philosopher Bernard Rollin at Will Rogers World Airport in five o’clock traffic and bring him to the Kirkpatrick Foundation for a cocktail reception.
