It will be an all out cheesy romantic night filled with photo booths, a Plaza Prom, a kissing booth and much heart-felt fun!

Start out a Velvet Monkey Salon, where artwork by Josh Heilaman will be featured. Be sure to check out the Velvet Monkey Sweetheart Salon specials as well! Next door, head to Collected Thread and grab a peck at the Plaza Kissing Booth! Collected Thread boasts a Valentine’s Special, plus fantastic jewelry and accessories for that special lady.

DNA Galleries will also be hosting a guest, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition promoting Momentum, OKC’s art exhibition for artist’s 30 and younger coming up on March 5-6th!

At Lyric on the Plaza, you could be one of the first in the country to see Snapshots, a brand new musical with a brand new concept from celebrated composer & lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Along with book writer David Stern, Mr. Schwartz has woven together treasured songs from his musicals past to tell the enchanting story of a couple who have fallen out of love. But when they come across photographs that stir up joyous memories of the past, their many years together come alive in front of them. You’ll recognize favorites from Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, Children of Eden, and Rags among many more musical gems, all with Schwartz’s own revised lyrics that beautifully tell this heartwarming, romantic story.

A 8:30 pm, deadCENTER is proud to present the remarkable animated musical “Sita Sings the Blues” as part of their “No Love” edition of ShortSUITES Live on the Plaza, at PhotoArt Studio, 1738 NW 16th St. Billed as “The Greatest Breakup Story Ever Told,” “Sita” ties together the story of two women. Sita, a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama, and Nina, an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, “Sita Sings the Blues” is a beautiful and strikingly original film that is both heartbreaking and hilarious.

Over at Coffy’s Cafe, enjoy local talent at open mic night, then head on Shop Good for live music by the Grown-Ups and featured artwork. Of course, hit up Bad Granny’s Bazaar for that funky find, and then proclaim your love forever at No Regrets Tattoo with a $40 Love Tattoo Special!Be sure to stop by Chaparney for an open house, then down Gatewood to JuJu Gallery to “Charm your Valentine with Voodoo Valentines and Parlor Games.

Celebrate the Grand Opening of Warpaint Clothing Company, Plaza District’s newest retail business boasting Native American style fashion, screen printed tees and more. There will be plenty of celebratory events at the opening, so stop by and see what Warpaint has to offer!

To top the night off, bust out the 80s prom dress for Paula & Co’s “Lover’s Ball” a Plaza-style prom complete with balloon arch for awkward prom photos to remember LOVE on the Plaza forever! There will be punch, music, dancing, and sappy love song karaoke! So all the single ladies and gents, couples and even those who hate Valentines Day, join us at LOVE on the Plaza to celebrate however you wish!
