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 YOUOMG.

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!
