Sing-a-long, Sadie Hawkins, Willcox Wine Tasting, Valentines Day, Chinese New Year

This is a busy weekend not just in Tucson but everywhere.

Feb. 14 – Valentine’s Day & Chinese New Year
Feb 15 – Presidents Day

Here are some Tucson and So. Ariz. events…

If you sing in the shower…
You just might want to go the Fiddler on the Roof sing-a-long at the Loft Cinema. That sounds like a ton of fun…Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match, find me a find, catch me a catch…tra la la.

Sadie Hawkins Dance & Dinner
Sadie Hawkins Day is really Nov. 13 but I think it’s a clever idea to be held on the day before Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, girls invite the guys and it happens this Saturday, Feb 13 at  Westward Look’s Lookout Bar & Grille for a night of fabulous food and foot-fancy fun! The three-course meal includes a bottle of red or white wine for $69/per couple. JD Norris will provide the live music for your dancing fun. All she wants to do is dance, dance, dance from 8:45 to 11:45 p.m.  If Valentine’s Day is too much pressure, consider Sadie Hawkins instead.

V Day
Here are some Valentine’s Day dining options and more Valentine’s Day restaurants too.

Year of the Tiger
If V Day is not on your dance card, celebrate Chinese New Year. The Chinese calendar is made of 12 zodiac signs. What sign are you? But more importantly, what Chinese zodiac sign matches your Chinese zodiac sign?

Have you noticed this post is all about matching and dating? Did you know I used to be Modem Butterfly and match people online? Doing the customer service for that business was hellish.

Wine Tasting in Willcox
That’s an unlikely place or so it was in the past but now there’s three wine tasting places in Willcox and one coming soon. After the wine tasting you can wander the Rex Allen Museum and go get some pie at Apple Annie’s. It’s all good, apples and grapes. How can you go wrong?

Carlson Creek Vineyards will have wines available for tasting during their grand opening celebration Feb. 13. They feature four wine varietals — a Syrah, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. The vineyard is a family owned and operated business. Robert Carlson is the winemaker; his brother John will manage the tasting room, and father, Bob, directs the farming operations. Robert Carlson’s sister and mother are also involved. Robert, Bob and John Carlson have completed viticulture and winemaking classes at University of California Davis.
