For the third year running, the Best Love Is Free offers a different sort of celebration for Valentine's Day weekend. If candlelit dinners aren't your bag, maybe a classed-up rap show, complete with a free compilation CD, is more your style. As Toki Wright, Culture Cry Wolf (pictured), Crunchy Kids, and many more serenade you from the stage, you'll have the opportunity to win prizes from a number of local stores and eateries and perhaps even win best-dressed couple. Couples packages are available. Check the website, thebestloveisfree.com, for more info and a huge amount of exclusive videos and interviews from artists who grace the CD. 18+.
