Yes, Valentine’s Day is on Friday, so it will be even harder than usual to find a restaurant table. If you haven’t done so by the time you’re reading this, you may be out of luck. So here are some other options to mix it up.

Second Annual Carver Heart Out Neighborhood Cleanup and Happy Hour at Cobra Cabana
Before getting started on date night, get dirty and help with neighborhood cleanup in Carver, plus enjoy happy hour at Cobra Cabana. Trash bags, gloves and pickers provided. 4 to 7 p.m.

New Paintings by Vittorio Colaizzi at Eric Schindler Gallery
To paraphrase John Waters, if your date doesn’t appreciate art, you should probably run the other direction. Maybe start the evening by dropping by a colorful one-person exhibition by Vittorio Colaizzi, an associate professor of art history at Old Dominion University. 7 to 9 p.m.

Enchantment Under the Sea at Fuzzy Cactus
Bring a date or come stag to this sock-hop-style event at a cool new venue, where the punch bowl is loaded. Grooves provided by Aaron Bushman and the always entertaining DJ Areawoman plus live ’60s music by the Shangri-Lords. Drink specials. 9 p.m.

Ninth Annual Love Boat Luau at Broadberry
Jack up those white knee-high socks: Once called “yacht rock’s most important Valentine’s Day event of all time” this “Love Boat”-themed shindig includes two sets by Three Sheets to the Wind. 9 p.m. $12-$15.
