The Love Hangover

. May 16, 2012.

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day to spend time with a loved one and cherish the moments together. But let’s face it, V-Day is mostly going through the motions of obligatory Hallmark clichés. It can be exhausting delivering the expected date or coming through with a surprise gift. So after overdosing on chocolate and roses, 826Michigan has just the day after cure for you. The Love Hangover is an event to unwind and enjoy company with your Valentine in the relaxed atmosphere of Woodruff’s in Ypsilanti. Guests can enjoy a recuperating soup supper with hearty soups provided by Beezy’s restaurant. Then get lost in the romance of local acts doing unconventional covers of some of the most memorable silly little love songs. All the proceeds will benefit 826michigan and the Huron River Arts Initiative (HuRAI!). 7pm. $8/$10 supper. Woodruff’s, 36 East Cross St., Ypsilanti. 734-761-3463. www.826Michigan.org
