Yup, SEWE is back! Oh, did you think we were talking about Cupid’s big day? Well, there’s plenty going on around the Holy City for all you lovebirds too — and a lot for you singles too. From special dinners to anti-Valentine’s Day parties, live music, and some sporting events, this weekend has a little something for everyone.
