1. STRIP AND PARTY

They call it a “brief” run, because it is. Mostly, it’s a huge, goofy shindig. Join the fun at Tom Grainey’s at 6th and Main streets, which will be the headquarters of the annual Cupid’s Undie Run on Saturday. The actual jogging is at 2 p.m. You’re welcome to watch, but it’s way more rewarding to participate and raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. [More]

2. ROCK OUT

It’s all about Saturday night. The Infamous Stringdusters will unleash acoustic jams at the Knitting Factory ($15). And Los Angeles alt-rock duo Ultra Violent Rays will ooze cool soundscapes at Tom Grainey’s (free, according to an email from the band).

3. ROMANCE A BEER

Still wondering what to do on Valentine’s Day? Or head over heels for beer? Take the money you were going to spend on roses and head to a local brewery. You’ll find beer and chocolate pairings, special brews, romantic meals and more. Oh, and check out the ratings from my Valentine’s Day chocolate beer taste-off.

4. LAUGH A LOT

Skippy from ’80s sitcom “Family Ties” will headline Liquid Laughs on Tuesday, Feb. 16. (Really.) Need a comedy fix sooner? Nathan Brannon is your man at Liquid this Valentine’s Day weekend. Dude won the 2014 Seattle International Comedy Competition. No joke. [Tickets]

5. BUY ART FOR A CAUSE

Last chance to try to nab that piece of art you really want at Valentine For AIDS. The art show and silent auction at Flying M Coffeehouse accepts final bids from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Get down there.
