Southgate Rollerrink

holiday of affection

Valentine's Day ... the sweetest holiday of the year.

Not the one with a bouquet of obligation-red roses, not the one with chocolate-dipped strawberries and sexy lingerie ... but the one with conversation hearts, handmade cards, dedicated love songs on the radio and genuine acts of affection for all who are dear. Whether you have a significant other or are flying solo this year -- celebrate love with the people (and animals) you adore. Didn't score Hamilton tickets?  Here are our favorite ways to celebrate love (and curiosity) this week:
