Quickly Score a V-Day Date

Plus drinking with blondes and anti-romance movies


LAST CHANCE FOR LOVE: Still looking for love in time for the weekend? It's not too late! Harry Caray's Wrigleyville hosts a speed dating event tonight, providing that last-chance opportunity. The suggested age range is 25-35, and drink specials such as $6 cosmos and $2 Corona, Corona Light and Pacifico bottles should help with those nerves. Organizers promise up to 15 three-minute dates, so you've got to like those odds. 6-9 p.m., 1351 N. Sheffield Ave., $10

STOCKS AND BLONDES: If you're going to drink tonight, might as well help a charity while you're at it. Blondes versus Brunettes hosts a party at Bull and Bear benefiting the Alzheimer's Association. The Blondes will be at the door selling 2 drink tickets for $10 and you can pretend you're actually there for charitable reasons. 5:30-7:30, 431 North Wells Street

LOVE STINKS: This week's Butterfly Theatre event is dedicated to movies dealing with good and bad love plus everything in between. The flicks on tap include Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, 500 Days of Summer and Amor es Perros. Movies start at 8 p.m. and a DJ starts spinning at 10 -- we're guessing with the movies providing a visual backdrop. With a $4 you-call-it beer and shot special, you'll have plenty of incentive to wallow in your own failed romantic pursuits. Butterfly Social Club, 722 W. Grand. FREE
