Are you still filled with political fervor? Do you find yourself surfing through cable news channels at 3am for the latest primary tidbits? Don't know what to do with yourself after the gale forces of Tsunami Tuesday? Worry not. While folks in Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland are making their voices heard, we have a slew of events to keep you occupied. Kick things off with DJ Shadow at the Regency Center who'll be mixing it up with Cut Chemist. And don't forget that Thursday is Valentine's Day. Ah, the infamous Day of Love; a time for sentimental jewelry ads and bitter single people. Bring a fluffy pillow down to Justin Herman Plaza and get your aggressions out at the Pillow Fight. Or celebrate singledom at International Quirkyalone Day at Red Hill Books. Stop eating boxed chocolates and take a breather to check out one of the year's most anticipated exhibits - British duo Gilbert & George at the de Young Museum. Then heat things up at 15 Minutes of Fame at the Elbo Room where 15 DJs will be spinning 15-minute sets. Top the weekend off with a performance of Kunst-Stoff's 10th Anniversary Season at YBCA.
