This February, we are giving you plenty of reasons to love, fall in love and keep that hunk of burning love going strong, when you visit Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk A&E District. We pledge to give you all our lovin’ with a “Midnight in Paris & New York” opening reception in honor of artist William Glackens; a Harry Potter book lovers party, ideal for wizards and muggles of all ages; a romantic serenade on the lush gardens of a historic home; and a night at the opera featuring the sexiest dance in history — all seven veils to be provided! And this is just the beginning! With so much to do and so much to share, you will wish that the shortest month of the year could offer an extended few days. But, not to worry, your addiction to love, art, and entertainment can always roll over into March. Because all you ever really need is love, and your desire to explore.
