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.

Carpet burns

A quick look at Grammy fashions (or attempts at them).

Local talent Johnathan Kayne graced the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammys — or, rather, one of his designs did. Let's hear it for this 405 fashion maven!

Artist Monika Jensen (pictured with adventurer Bill Borger) rocked this coming season's palette of blue and a oh-so-seductive high-low hemline, in Kayne's playful yet chic design, which represented this great state — and represented it well!

Get this look at BodyTrends, 9327 N. Pennsylvania, or SJ Bridal, 5645 N. Pennsylvania. Want a custom design for your collection? No problem! Call Kayne at 607-6006 to set up your appointment.

Now onto a few Grammy fashions we should be proud aren't local:

OK, Sasha Gradiva, we get that you're attempting a statement in the wide worlds of fashion and music. The thing is, unless you're going to be starring in an upcoming sequel to “The Terminator,” you needn't ruin a perfectly beautiful gown with heavy artillery. Let your beauty and talent do the talking — not the mechanical arm.

Robyn, as much as I love you, your quirky Euro-beats and your eccentric style, the red carpet is just not a place for platform steel-toe boots.


Just go away, Rebecca Black. Take your “music” and your “fashion sense” and don't come back.

We get it, Snook: You weight 98 pounds now. It still does not make that dress OK.

No caption necessary.

I recently tried my first hot yoga class at Yoga at Tiffany’s (9610 N May; 708-0564), and I think I’m hooked. Never in a million years had I thought I’d try it.

Pet project


Features

Jenn Scott
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.
