Heart-Shaped Happenings

Valentine’s-Themed Fun for Everyone

Love is in the air, and Valentine’s-themed soirées are everywhere. First things first: Underpants. Or, more specifically, lingerie. Carr Winery’s barrel room parties are back, and tonight’s (Feb. 9) will be haute! For $30/$50 (VIP), you gain entrée to a runway fashion show featuring tees from CMND-Z, undies by sophunderwear, lingerie by Fair Verona, and more. The fun goes down 7-10 p.m. Call 965-7985. … If the underthings got you in the mood, Imagine Wine’s Valentine’s Casino Night (Sat., Feb. 11, 7-11pm) will surely satisfy: While sipping Panty Dropper or Boxer Dropper Syrah, indulge your other vices with food, faux gambling, and a naughty-costume contest. Proceeds benefit Aeromedicos of S.B. Tickets are $60-$70. Call 688-1769. … If you have a fetish for all things sweet, don’t miss Monday’s tasting event at C’est Cheese, where you’ll sample gourmet chocolates from L.A.’s L’Artisan du Chocolat while sipping dessert wines. Call 965-0318. … And if V-Day makes you want to jump overboard, why not partake of a cruise instead? S.B.’s Celebration has several cruise options available, from the Love Bites cocktail party (Sat., Feb. 11, 5pm) to the romantic evening and nighttime cruises (Tue., Feb. 14, 4:15 and 7:30pm). Call (888) 316-9363.
