Valentines for Good

Thursday, January 26, from 6-9 p.m., the Good Capitalist (which swears that’s not a contradiction in terms) presents Valentines for Good at Reds Tapas & Wine Bar (211 Helena St.), which will feature fair-trade chocolate, wine, and Valentine’s gifts made with love by S.B.-area vendors. In between eating, drinking, and shopping, guests will hear from entrepreneurs who are giving back and mingle with other do-gooders dedicated to positive social change. Call (805) 966-5906 for info.
