If a gloomy and wet Valentine's Day had you stuck in a Monday funk, don't worry, there is still hope for this week. Lift your spirits with the fuzzy guitars and vocal harmonies of the Dum Dum Girls and shake your tail with Miss Kittin at Obey the Kitty. The often-tame arena of literary readings gets a steamy injection of femininity with Girls Reading Naked, while Spelling Bee for Cheaters brings a lively contest with local celebrities to benefit 826 Valencia. Hit the dance floor at the Opel Nine-Year Anniversary Celebration and get the party started early with the annual Stompy + Sunset President's Day bash. Size matters at Olmec: Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico, a collection of ancient art at the de Young, and the grand Chinese New Year Parade 2011, a San Francisco tradition that is the largest celebration of Asian culture outside of Asia, according to organizers. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
