You can expect plenty of two-steppin’, boot stompin’, indulgence at Converge Denver.

BEERds and Barrels at Lucky Pie

Lucky Pie Pizza & Taphouse LoDo, 1610 16th St.

At Lucky Pie, they have always done what they can to avoid celebrating Valentine’s Day. While the rest of the city’s restaurants are all hustle and bustle about 5-course pre-fixe menus, complimentary champagne toasts and hazardous desserts that may contain engagement rings, the Lucky Pie folks are usually planning the best way to get tipsy on delicious, hard to find beers. So, this year, they are really going for it! Lucky Pie presents their first BEERds and Barrels Festival for sexy bearded men and the ladies/gents who love them (the beards—it’s purely physical). The AMAZEBALL tappings they have will start at 6 p.m., but the party could very well go on all night. Check out what they have to offer and get some beer and eye candy for your V-day!

Dark Hearts Party

Denver Bicycle Cafe, 1308 E. 17th Ave.

Fort Collins Brewery is bringing Denver Bicycle Cafe two awesome chocolate stouts to pair with two tasty truffles at 7 p.m. with music from Slykumu. Plus, no cover, no reservations necessary. What’s better then that?
