February Events 2016-4

Welcome February! Thank goodness January is OVER! Jan 2016 was definitely a bit choppy there for a bit. But time keeps moving, and it a new month full of new things! Exciting things! Keep reading to hear about the hot stuff happening in the cold of February.


This month is Library Lovers Month, National Condoms Month and Marijuana Awareness Month! You can probably celebrate those all at once... just saying.



On February 2, Punxsutawney Phil has his say for Groundhog Day. On the 5th, get your freak on for Working Naked Day! It's probably best to get permission first though. The 5th is also Bubble Gum Day and the release of the MUCH ANTICIPATED(here, at least) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in theaters!! Buy your tickets now, kids!

Celebrate on the 6th with a pint of Ben & Jerry's! It's Ice Cream For Breakfast Day! It's also a great day to visit I Made It! Market in the Waterfront! They'll be selling so many hand-made goodies. You just have to stop by and see!

Birthdays this week: Ayn Rand and James Joyce (February 2), George Romero (February 4), and Arthur Weasley (February 6).


I'm sure everyone has already put the Super Bowl in their calendars, but just incase you need the reminder, it's on the 7th! The 8th is Opera Day, so make sure to save your vocals! The 9th is Mardi Grass and Read in the Bathtub Day. You might want to choose between the two, because eating massive amounts of pancakes and drinking all the booze will probably make it really hard to read in the tub. The 9th is also the release day for Morning Star by Pierce Brown AND Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard!!  We are so ready to continue the Red Rising and Red Queen Series, JUST LET US TELL YOU. OMG.

On the 12th, we would celebrate Darwin Day, but we will be super busy SEEING DEADPOOL IN THEATERS.

Birthdays this week: Laura Ingalls Wilder and Charles Dickens (February 7), Seth Green and John Williams (February 8), and Judy Blume and Charles Darwin (February 12).



Are you ready for this? ARE YOU READY????



Of course, we all know that the 14th is Valentine's Day. But did you know that it is also Ferris Wheel Day? Followed, on the 15th, by National Gumdrop Day and the Westminster Dog Show on the 15th and 16th!

Birthdays this week: Joseph Gordon-Levitt (February 17), and Bruce Wayne (February 19).



Heartbreak of all heartbreak, Alan Rickman would have turned 70 on the 21st. However, you can distract yourself from that pain by getting tickets to the Steel City Roller Derby Game on the 21st. It's the Allegheny Avengers vs. the Mon Monsters! It's also BOOK CLUB! Join us to talk about T.H. White's The Once and Future King. <3

The 22nd is National Margarita Day! It's a NATIONAL holiday, so you should probably celebrate. On the 23rd, we celebrate the ancient art of throwing stones with Curling is Cool Day, as well as the release of A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab!

National Chili Day is on the 26th. The 26th is also the first day of Texas Cowboy Poetry Days, but more importantly, it's day one of Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest! Beerfest closes out on the 27th, which is also, conveniently, Open That Bottle Night.

Birthdays this week: Alan Rickman (February 21), and Edward Gorey (February 22).


Start off the week by watching the 2016 Oscars on the 28th! This week also has a BONUS ROUND day, because Leap Day is on the 29th!

Birthdays this week: Superman (February 29)


So, what do you think?
