Phoenix Weekly Event Planner - Love is in the air

Hey all! Lots of stuff going on Saturday for the big day-o-love. If you're feeling the pinch of the economy, check out my 'cheap' ideas at the bottom.

• Chihuly: The Nature of Glass - Desert Botanical Garden (sign up for a specific time)
• Tucson Gem & Mineral Show
• Romeo & Juliet - Ballet Arizona
Jimmy Carter signs his book - I'm going. I've never seen a real, live President before! Changing Hands, Friday
Cavalia (like Cirque du Soleil, but with horses)
The Pleasure Feast - AZ Renaissance Festival
Robin Williams - Fri and Sat, Dodge Theatre
NBA All-Star Events
Couples Cooking Class on Feb 13th
VNSA Book Sale - Formerly that Visiting Nurses book sale. AZ State Fairgrounds. Sat and Sun
Bone Marrow Drive - Just a swab of the mouth is all it takes. You'll be entered in a database and maybe some day you could help save someone's life! You do pay the tissue-typing cost, but it is totally tax deductable.

Call your long-distance loved ones on Valentine's day for FREE from any landline courtesy of Free411, which I use ALL the time.

Restaurant of the Week:
Alto ristorante e bar - I haven't eaten at the Hyatt in years, but I'm suggesting this restaurant because your meal comes with a romantic gondola ride. Perfect for V-day! Make reservations to beat the crowds.

Hike of the Week:
How about pack some champagne and cheese and crackers and take a hike up
Piestewa Peak.

Economical Valentine's Ideas:
• Take the light rail to the Phoenix Art Museum ($10), then have lunch at the museum by Arcadia Farms
• Take a drive to the Rim Country to see the new snow. Bring hot cocoa and a camera.
Make a romantic dinner and rent a movie (The Notebook, Casablanca, Say Anything, Titanic, 50 First Dates ...)
• Tour and lunch at the Queen Creek Olive Mill
• Stroll through Old Town Scottsdale and check out the
public art

***As always, if you have an event or a new restaurant to try, let me know!***
