Holiday: Valentine's Day 

Sat., Feb. 14

This Valentine's Day, Atlanta offers more events than you have valentines and proves there's life beyond overpriced prix-fixe dinners. At Paris on Ponce, SHOWBIZ WHAT SIZZLES showcases singers, a classic burlesque show by the hot and steamy Dames Aflame, and special appearances by Mike Geier of Kingsized and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force's" Dana Snyder. Cool off at the Georgia Aquarium with MOTIONS OF THE OCEANS, a dinner and provocative lecture about animal mating rituals, which is followed by an optional adult sleepover under the sharks in the Ocean Voyager gallery. If your sweetheart prefers sustainability to exotic seafood, your best bet may be LUSTING FOR LOCAL FOOD, a green-themed evening of dinner and dancing featuring local and organic produce, cheese and meat. Save your voice and let the professionals serenade your valentine without cracking a note by making a date with LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO. This all-male, two-time Grammy-winning choral group boasts musical traditions that hail from South African mines.
