With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's ok to show a little extra love this week. Whether you are planning to go all out with the perfect date or just chill with your friends, there are plenty of events to help you get in the mood. Start by paying homage to this beautiful city by the bay with The City, a gallery show that celebrates San Francisco with interpretations from nine artists. Then hold on tight because the Valentines festivities kick into full throttle with the sexy Lingerie and Lace party at Supperclub. Write a romantic message to your sweetie at the Marker Dance Party at UC Berkeley on Friday, and Stock up with tasty vegan treats at the SF Vegan Bakesale. Saturday and Sunday are jam-packed with V-Day events, including Black Valentine's Masquerade, Paradise Lovers Disco, and ZinZanni Valentine Matinee, but you can't forget about the massive Pillow Fight held annually at Justin Herman Plaza.
