It’s the week before Valentine’s Day and all during this time; you’re trying to figure out who’s your Valentine. Will she like motorcycles? Will he like seafood? Will she go to museums? This is stressful, dude. Well, no worries. Shari is here. Have lots of hope and have no fear. Try taking them on one of the dates listed below, and if they don’t like it…you’ll have to let them go. That won’t be bad. It will be great. You’ll get to save the money you’d have spent on a date.
Ah. There’s nothing better than being on two wheels and hitting the open road, right? Just kidding.

Motorcycle enthusiasts, come prepared for a night of good food and live performances.
