THIRD STREET—Upscale lingerie boutique Sugar Lilie, dessous prives is kicking off their special men's-only events (it's called the Men-Clave series, we totally love it) with a lively presentation aimed at men with discerning taste who are looking for lingerie-buying and styling tips. Besides helping men avoid the pitfalls of lingerie buying, the boutique is serving up Stella Artois and special pricing just for the event. If you're a gentleman who'd like to attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. And regardless of your gender or whether or not you can attend tomorrow, consider dropping by the boutique to check out the erotic photography of Steve Diet Goedde. We can almost guarantee it will put you in the V-Day mood. Tomorrow night's event is from 7pm to 9pm, 8024 W. Third Street (323-655-0795) [Racked Inbox]
YOUR COMPUTER, OR MAYBE YOUR BEDROOM—Who says bedtime stories are just for kids? Not the makers of Stellina Pajamas, who are encouraging you to write a story for Valentine's Day. Put on your most fashionable creative thinking cap, write a story, and submit it to email@example.com by February 10 for your chance to win a pair of Stellina Pajamas. Even if you don't win, your "hand-made" story could make a wonderful Valentine's Day gift (but just in case, don't skimp on the the chocolate.)
