Good day and happy Valentine's Day!
The day of love might fall on a weekday night this year, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything to do this evening. Tonight offers a show at the Wharton Center, a bring-a-date-or-not gaming session at MSU and more. Check out City Pulse's 2017 Valentine's Day event guide here to see what's going on around town.
