Up, Up and Away. Get all spiffy and float down to the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, 621 E. 4th St., for a night of mingling and art appreciation. Oklahoman's for Equality is displaying the work of Joseph Buchanan in support of the annual fundraiser. What better way to spend the evening than by taking in some helium-filled art and supporting a good local cause? Inspirations from a Red Balloon will be on display throughout the month but the opening is by far the most intriguing to attend. So get all decked out and be there at 6pm to meet the artist and give Tulsa equality a good shove in the right direction. Visit okeq.org for more information.

Off Key. Sometimes it isn't the size of the talent that makes the star; sometimes it's just the will to make the world listen. Florence Foster Jenkins may sound like a cat in labor when belting out her operatic tunes but that didn't stop her from commanding audiences as she performed at Carnegie Hall. Take in the sights and sounds of the roaring 20s as Souvenir takes audiences a ear-piercing journey. The pitch will be slightly amiss at Tulsa Ballet, Studio K, 1212 E. 45th Pl., Feb. 11-13.

Throughout the snow-covered city, music, dinner and passion beckon couples to show how much they adore each other. If Cupid's arrow hasn't pierced the heart of that special someone, in true lovey-dovey fashion, take matters into your own hands. For all the want-to-be singles in the city, grab some friends and make some toasts to the life of a bachelor. Be safe T-Town and make sure to spread the love on this Valentine's Day.
