Save the romance for Saturday night

If you couldn't make it out to a romantic Valentine's Day dinner last night, all is not lost. We know that things like securing a babysitter or the necessity to be at work early the next day can get in the way. Don't worry -- you can still have fun on Saturday night. Here are five things we'd do with that special someone.

There's romance in the air at the National Gallery's ice rink. (Matt McClain for The Post)

If your love knows no bounds, check out "Leo: An Anti-Gravity Show" at Artisphere. There was a lot of buzz about this mix of magic, theater and performance art at the Edinburgh Festival.

Does your sweetie like to groove? The final Fatback dance party is taking place on all three levels of Bohemian Caverns this weekend, and there's no better place for dancing to funky R&B or sultry soul.

Politics and Prose is hosting its first-ever trivia night at the bookstore. The first question will be read at 7:30 in the basement cafe, but you'll want to arrive earlier for coffee and seats. (Teams can have up to five members, so this might be perfect for a brainy double date.)

Hold hands ice skating at the National Gallery of Art's outdoor rink, and then wander over to Fiola for classic cocktails and some of D.C.'s best bar nibbles. (The restaurant is now Obama-approved.)

Two Maryland grooms will get married on stage at a concert by the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, a production appropriately dubbed My Big Fat Gay Wedding. The program at Lisner Auditorium celebrates marriage equality with classic love songs from Broadway, pop hits and original music composed for the chorus.
