This weekend is for the lovers only as several artists around the country are using this weekend to help couples celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend. Concerts with some of your favorite crooners from Tank to Jagged Edge are heading to your city; Erykah Badu and Fantasia are on the road this weekend as well. We hope you’re getting all the love you can handle this weekend and every weekend. Plus, today is Single Awareness Day, tomorrow is Do a Grouch a Favor Day and Sunday is Random Acts of Kindness Day. And unofficially Side Piece Sunday.
