This Weekend...

Well, the day many of you have been hoping for and/or dreading is almost here. Yes, tomorrow is Valentine's Day 2009. If you find yourself alone this Valentine's Day, don't just sit home and brood. Here are some suggestions for what you can do this weekend - regardless of your relationship status.

Tonight, Siff Cinema presents Deadline USA, starring Humphrey Bogart. It's an old-school drama that revolves around the politics of the newspaper business. The show starts at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10.00.

Here's an event which is sure to make you slightly uncomfortable - watching a pair of octopi consumate their relationship. Yes, it's that time of year - Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium. And what more bizarre way is there to celebrate Valentine's Day than to watch two octopi go on a blind date? To quote the Aquarium's site: "Aquarium biologists set the mood with decorative hearts, roses and romantic music at the Octopus Exhibit. But it’s up to the octopuses to decide whether or not love is in the water!" The "date" begins at noon on Saturday, Feb. 14th. Admission is $16.00 (adults), $10.50 (kids). For more information, go to the Seattle Aquarium's website.

This weekend Seattle Center presents Festival Sundiata; the event will take place Sat. 2/14 & Sun. 2/15 from 12:00-8:00pm. The festival celebrates African and African-American culture through dance and song. Admission is free.
