February 16: Mardi Gras Penthouse Party
The Saturday following Valentine’s Day is when the fun really starts… Every year, Events & Adventures hosts their annual Valentine’s Day Party, which is almost guaranteed to sell out. This year’s rooftop party offers drink deals, amazing views, and fantastic music music. The Mardi Gras theme is optional, but masks will be provided for everyone in attendance.
February 19: Just for Laughs with Ken Jeong
Laughter is the best medicine and also a key component of a great night out. Head to the Orpheum Theatre on February 18 to enjoy famous actor/comedian, Ken Jeong. Jeong has come full circle and returned to the stage to reflect on how he went from being a doctor to comedy superstar. He opens up about his wife’s battle with breast cancer and how that led to him starring in one of the biggest comedy franchises of all time, The Hangover. This event is guaranteed to make you laugh non-stop.
February 17: Volunteer with the Salvation Army
The bonus of volunteering is that you’ll meet like minded people who also see the value and importance of giving back to their community. On February 17, join Events & Adventures as they head to the Belkin House to help cook lunch for the less fortunate. Your shift will include either prepping and cooking, serving, cleaning, and preparing for the next meal.
