With Valentine's Day just a few days away, love is in the air in San Francisco. Restaurant reservations are harder to find, flower shops are reaching capacity, and holiday options are dwindling. If you're still making last-minute plans, spend some time with our Valentine's Day Guide. Otherwise, unwind - or find a date! - at one of the great events this week. The city's love affair with quality brew continues starting this weekend as aficionados gather for SF Beer Week, and the boat will definitely be rocking at the Love Boat Valentine's Day Dance Cruise. Find the perfect duet partner at the Love Bites: 80s Power Ballad Sing A Long and flex your intellect at the 44th California International Antiquarian Book Fair. Unleash your sweet tooth at the St. Valentine Sweetie Pie and Art Fest and stick with the theme and keep the rush going with Cake at The Fillmore.
