Yes, there just happens to be a giant heart-infested holiday coming right around the corner that many consider to be the biggest date night of the year. In its honor we have rounded up a short list of restaurants where the ambience is such that couples mooning across the table at each other are as much a fixture as dimmer switches and candlelight.

Your Sister's Sister
I've been a fan of Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton's work since I saw her first feature, We Go Way Back, at a screening way back in 2006. I was entranced by Shelton's approach to storytelling—which seemed simultaneously impressionistic and incisive. I also appreciated her firm grasp of how people actually speak to each other—probably a result of her reliance on loose script outlines and improvised lines.

The 5th Avenue Theater just announced they are giving away free tickets to the February 5 performance of Oklahoma! "And?" you may ask.

Scamper up Mount Si for free! You know you want to.
Hikers (snow hikers?) take note: The state is waiving the day-use fee to use state parks for all three days this long MLK Day weekend. If you scamper off to Mount Si, Little Si, Twin Falls, West Tiger or Rattlesnake—or any other DNR trail—you won't need a Discover Pass ($10/day). So it's a great weekend to try out one of these local trails, which are especially glorious in the snow (or rain) because: #1) wonderfully scenic and #2) wonderfully deserted!

MUST HEARZoe Muth and the Lost High RollersYou might guess this sweet country crooner hails from Nashville, but Zoe Muth is a Seattle girl, through and through. Backed by her Lost High Rollers, Muth has been compared to Kitty Wells, Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent. The high praise keeps tumbling in for her most recent album, Starlight Hotel, released in April. Fun fact: that album is named after the hotel on Ballard Ave., which recently reopened as Hotel Ballard.

Long before the Canons and the Bathtub Gins, the Liberty Bars and the Oliver's Twists, Seattle had Tini Bigs. Back when we were a town of beer snobs but not cocktail snobs, it opened on a Lower Queen Anne corner in 1996. Those were blissfully ignorant times when you could go right ahead and slap a "tini" onto the name of any drink served in a triangle-shaped glass and virtually no one would cry martini foul, and Tini Bigs did it with gratuitous gusto.

Stuffed with beautiful pictures of giant burgers, shimmering with cheese- and bacon-covered goodness, our January Best Burgers issue makes me want a burger so bad, sometimes it hurts.   I don’t think I’m alone. The tireless Seattle mag event staff has kicked it into high gear and organized a creative new event called the Burger Brawl, going down January 26 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Pier 66.

PBS’ Masterpiece hit series returned this Sunday and proved itself more than worth the money I, inexplicably, shelled out for local TV in the meantime. WHAT IT IS: The best thing to further confuse and distort Americans' perceptions of historical events since Mad Men. NO, REALLY, WHAT IS IT? An all around well-made British drama set on a nobleman’s estate at the onset of World War I, where the problems of servants and socialites get equal screen time. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
