Tinsel, a holiday popup bar at 3619 Buckeystown Pike in Buckeystown, is returning this weekend for another month. This time it will have a Valentine’s Day theme.

January is coming to an end, and isn’t that enough to celebrate?

As we dip our toes into February, this week’s trio of events has a slight love theme.

First, there’s the ode to Valentine’s/Galentine’s at Tinsel, a pop-up bar and restaurant. Then, what’s more romantic than gazing at the stars? And finally, the love of the written word at World Read Aloud Day.

So grab the person you love the most and head to one of these events.
