We’re honestly surprised that there are still tickets available—Black Hearts Ball, a black and white formal cocktail party that only debuted last year but quickly became the premiere Valentines Day event. This year’s installment, set at the beautiful American Swedish Institute, showcases seven Minnesota based artists in fashion and design in tandem with local operatic and classical musicians performances. It’s truly a special way to celebrate with your valentine (or will be full of the kind of valentines you’re going to want to date). Saturday, 7 PM. $25-50. —Taylor Carik
