Find a Nerdy Valentine

Plus, wine and chocolate and fusion networking


NERDS NEED LOVE TOO: Nerds at Heart have been hooking up like-minded souls for several years now, so it only makes sense they're throwing a couple of events during Valentine's week. Tonight it's the third annual Love Fest, but it's only for gay nerd guys. Same time, same place for hetero nerds on Wednesday. Enjoy Valentine's-themed entertainment, prizes, and a complimentary cocktail. Holiday Club, 4000 N. Sheridan Rd. 7-10 p.m. $20 in advance

8 DEADLY SINS: Wine and chocolate go hand-in-hand. Especially this week loverboy. Salute Wine Bar & Cafe and Chicago-based Vosges Haut-Chocolat present The 8 Deadly Sins for their monthly wine tasting installment of Casa di Vino. Sample the goods, talk to the experts and feel the love. 7 p.m., 46 East Superior St. $29

BIRDS OF A FEATHER: In this job market, you need to make connections. The latest Fusion Networking event at The Red Canary brings together leaders in the performing, visual and media arts. Make some new contacts, nosh on some apps and taste some premium beer from Louis Glunz. Hopefully you'll get lucky in the business card raffle drawings and giveaways. 6 p.m., 695 North Milwaukee Ave. $10
