Sunday Swing Out
Sundays, all month, RockIt Room
Remember that swing revival of the late nineties, when you vowed to learn to swing but never did? Well, good dancing never goes out of style, so you still have a chance. 406 Clement Street (at 5th), 415-387-6343,

New Breed: The Now Sound of Soul
Friday, February 4, Burritt Room
Sixties and seventies soul mixed with new tracks will keep you glued to the Burritt Room’s dance floor. Those Saturday morning reruns of Soul Train were never quite like this. 417 Stockton Street (at Sutter), 415-400-0500,

Everything Goes! The Music of Cole Porter
Friday, February 4 through Sunday, February 13, Eureka Theatre

Russian Festival 2011
Friday–Sunday, February 11–13, Russian Center of San Francisco
Think Russian culture is all borscht and Siberian snow drifts? Come to this 23rd annual festival of Russian dance, music and art, and you will be pleasantly enlightened. 2450 Sutter Street (at Divisadero), 415-921-7631,

Plain White T’s

Summer Down Under: The Wines of Australia and New Zealand
Thursday, February 10, Bimbo’s 365 Club

Word Up Wine Tasting
Sunday, February 13, Fort Mason Center
It’s wine in support of books! Hemingway would be proud. Marina Boulevard (at Buchanan), 415-626-7512 ext. 106,

Monday–Thursday, February 14–17, The Fillmore
Forget those stale drugstore chocolates – what’s better than Cake for Valentine’s Day? Grab your sweetheart and say, “Yum” all week long. 1805 Geary Boulevard (at Fillmore), 415-346-6000,

Noise Pop 2011
Tuesday–Sunday, February 22–27, various venues
It would be enough to be one of the greatest indie music festivals around, but Noise Pop doesn’t stop there. It’s music and art and film, and it’s awesome. Venues include the Regency Ballroom, Make Out Room, Café du Nord, Rickshaw Stop, and the Roxie Theatre.

And to compel you to cross town:
Beautiful Saturdays

Saturdays, all month, Beauty Bar
