What about an actual calendar?  You know, where things are listed by date?

There are some good options here but I wish they had listed the Valentine's Dome Double Feature event happening at MoMA PS1 Friday night. A friend just told me about it and it seems like a lot of fun to see two awesome movies(Some Like it Hot and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) with friends or a date for only $10. It is definitely another great option for anyone without Valentine's day plans.
