Ever wanted to drink an ice-cold beer out of a handmade goblet? Join Public Glass's popular Hot Glass Cold Beer event that combines glass demonstrations, live music and food and drinks for an awesome night out.

Boxing Room (named one of SF's best new restaurants by us) is getting together a special Valentine's Day prix-fixe menu that involves deep-fried alligator, NOLA-style BBQ shrimp, cornmeal-crusted sweetbreads, and more.

To really lock into aphrodesiac mode, splurge on an oysters-on-the-half-shell tasting for two for $25. 399 Grove Street @ Gough, 415-430-6590
