Valentine’s Love Jam: Ladies Night Edition
Bring your Valentine to a sensual and sexy event that they won’t forget, especially if you’re a fan of R&B and hip-hop slow jams. The Valentine’s Love Jam features a slew of renowned R&B artists including Tyrese, Joe, Ginuwine, Dave Hollister and Next. Tyrese is taking a break from the Fast and the Furious franchise for the time being and is returning to the music side of his career. Ginuwine, on the other hand, dominated the charts with several multi-platinum R&B albums during the 1990s and 2000s. The show’s performances will feel like putting on a late-night contemporary R&B soundtrack and send hints to your partner. With live music and soothing vibes, there’s no doubt that this event will be a Valentine’s Day celebration that you’ll never forget.

Comedy is a great way to break the ice on Valentine’s Day, especially if it’s coming from a comedian who performs an unflinching, R-rated performance. Bob Saget warmed hearts as Danny Tanner in Full House and as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos during the late 1980s and 1990s, but eventually, he finally dropped his painfully squeaky-clean image for a darker, more sarcastic standup routine. We’re not complaining. When CULTURE asked him about personal cannabis consumption in 2012, Saget said “God knows I’ve smoked enough of it in my life.” Beyond the nostalgia of simpler times, Saget has rebranded himself as an unapologetic vulgar comedian along the lines of Lenny Bruce or Richard Pryor, and it works. In 2014, he was nominated for Grammy for his stand-up special “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About.”
