It’s the most diverse county in the world and the best tourism destination in the United States, so it’s no surprise that Queens is overflowing with wonderful Valentine’s Day activities and bargains. In fact, local chances for romance and fun related to this international holiday are so numerous that they run for more than two weeks and include everything from live music to a “love run,” hotel getaways, and even a blood drive for the do-gooders.

Ah, the marked rhythms, strong postures, and abrupt pauses. The tangible passion and sensuality mixed with a rich history as an underground dance in Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. For the next eight weeks, Thalía Spanish Theatre will offer Tango 5 Senses, featuring live performances, chances to meet the protagonists, and dance lessons. With music composed, arranged, and directed by Latin Grammy winner Raul Jaurena, the shows will have a feel that is dynamic and playful, yet romantic. The cast boasts eight dancers, two singers, piano, clarinet, violin, and double bass. Shows will be on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with a special Valentine’s Day Tango Lovers event with wine, tapas, and the stars. Workshops will take place on Saturday afternoons.
