14 WEDNESDAY

Yet another V-Day finds you without that special someone? Don’t fret. Gather all the girlfriends together in a Waiting to Exhale-like bonding moment, or get the brothers together and come down to It’s Your Mug for “Jazz, Wine and Poetry: An Almost Love Story.” This poetry play, performed by Toni Asante Lightfoot and Twain Dooley of the Modern Urban Griots, takes a tongue-in-cheek look at desire and love between friends. You’re sure to recognize yourself somewhere in the drama, which is first in a series of events marking the second anniversary of IYM’s Tuesday Night Poetry Readings. At 7:30 and 9:00 p.m. at It’s Your Mug, 2601 P St. NW. $4. For reservations call (202) 723-1906. CP
