1. National Comedy Theatre’s House Of Cards Show

National Comedy Theatre (NCT) will bring couples together one laugh at a time with a special “House of Cards” show in honor of Valentine’s Day for those who want to celebrate with their significant others in a creative and entertaining way. And at $10 a ticket it’s very affordable for those couples on a budget. Before the show start your evening with a beer and burrito from El Indio or some delicious fish and chips and a pint of hard cider from Shakespeare’s Pub.

The “House of Cards” production is set up in two parts. During the first part, the cast will interview a random, married couple from the audience. The cast will then play significant scenes from their life together, anything from their first meeting, first date, meeting the parents and even their wedding day.

The second half is set aside for “Comedy Court.”Here couples will have opportunity to “sue” their spouses for pet peeves they may be struggling with. In past shows, an individual sued his girlfriend because she couldn’t make a sandwich correctly, and a girl sued her fiancé because he wanted to build all of their furniture instead of actually buying it.

Tickets are now available for the annual “House of Cards” performances slated for Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7:00 p.m. and Thursday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m at their venue located at 3717 India Street in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego.

For more information or to purchase tickets online, please visit contact the NCT Box Office at 619-295-4999.

One of my favorite downtown restaurants, Bice Ristorante, is hosting a special Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe menu. Starting at $56, you can enjoy a fantastic 3-course meal. There are three seatings for this special offer, 5pm, 7pm and 9pm. Those who dine at the 5pm and 9pm sittings will receive a complimentary glass of moscato with their dessert.

This Prix Fixe menu isn’t just for Valentine’s Day itself but will run from February 14th-17th. My husband and I are planning on heading out after Valentine’s Day for a special meal without the hype of the holiday.
