New Covent Garden Flower Market Gears Up For Valentines Day
Valentine’s Day is the time when couples pull out all of the stops in an effort to express their love for their significant other. Most will opt for the standard dinner, flowers and candy, but these shows are sure to spice up Valentine’s Day and create a romantic experience rather than a boring date. Listen to music to put yourself in the mood, attend the ballet or shun the romantic vibe altogether and see a comedy show. Pick a venue that expresses your love and treat your date to an unforgettable night.

Imagine “West Side Story” performed with the skill and grace of a ballet and then paired with two other George Balanchine’s performances. The Miami City Ballet Presents Program III: Triple Threat is a ballet performance at the Adrienne Arsht Center and features dances from Balanchine’s modern “Episodes” and classic Tchaikovsky “Pas De Deux.” Prepare to be enthralled by leaps, bounds and a storyline that mesmerizes audiences. This is a great performance for ballet lovers, but for those not fond of the genre, they can consider this performance a gift that rivals any diamond or obligatory flowers.

Fans of Lewis Black know that his performance has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day. It’s just a great comedy show featuring a man who gives the most poignant and hilarious rants of our generation. Watch Black’s rational irrational anger as he complains about modern day conveniences, American politics and more. You and your spouse will be united in laughter and belly-aching cackles as you shun the romantic and opt for fun instead. It’s the most hilarious way to spend Valentine’s Day.
