The Harlem Globetrotters hit town on Tuesday.

Don't think that just because you went out for Valentine's Day over the weekend that the fun stops there. We have a bevy of opportunities for you to entertain yourself and others in our event listings and Staff Picks. 

Here are some highlights of the week ahead: 

Monday, Feb. 15

FILM | The Magic Lantern is hosting the Free Flight Film Festival, which means a whole lotta short flicks about hang-gliding. There will be local pilots on hand to talk about their hobby in a Q&A. 
Tuesday, Feb. 16

BENEFIT/FOOD & DRINK | It's Orlison Community Pint Night, with $1 of each pint sold going to support KYRS radio. A tasty way to support community radio at the brewery's downtown tap room. 

SPORTS | The legendary Harlem Globetrotters drop by the Spokane Arena. I can hear the faint strains of "Sweet Georgia Brown" already. 

MUSIC EVENTS | Class it up a bit with the Spokane Symphony's Chamber Soiree at the Davenport, where musicians from the symphony will play some killer classical in a cool setting. 

Wednesday, Feb. 17

COMMUNITY | Join the conversation about the future of Riverfront Park at the Riverfront Park Redevelopment Open House. See the latest plans and meet some of the movers and shakers. 

Thursday, Feb. 18

FOOD & DRINK | The Blackbird is hosting a food and beer pairing dinner, a three-course throwdown that should be utterly delicious. 

WORDS | Auntie's welcomes some serious local literary firepower in the form of three poet laureates all reading together: Washington state poet laureate Tod Marshall, Spokane poet laureate Laura Read and former Spokane poet laureate Thom Caraway. 

Friday, Feb. 19

THEATER | The University of Idaho Women's Center presents a production of The Vagina Monologues, a must-see if you never have, and worth seeing again if you have. 

COMMUNITY | The Evergreen Cat Fanciers Cat Show hits downtown Spokane all weekend, starting off on Friday with a day dedicated to bengal cats. Read more about it here

Saturday, Feb. 20

COMMUNITY | The Palomino hosts the CannaShow, an event for anyone interested in the recreational marijuana biz to get up to date on the latest trends. 

WORDS | INK Artspace hosts the Marry a Monster book release, the second edition of the Lilac City Fairy Tales series.
