Show your love for the rebellious St. Valentine Sunrise Restaurant, 3126 24th St, SF. 6-9pm, price of food purchase. The Center for Political Education’s radical take on Valentine’s Day sends our hearts aflutter: “Centuries ago, a determined St. Valentine refused the war machine of his time by marrying couples in defiance of Roman Emperor Claudius II, who’d banned marriage for fear that married soldiers would not want to go to battle.” To commemorate that valiant act of civil disobedience, Sunrise Restaurant will serve up some lovingly prepared Salvadoran food and donate 10 percent of all proceeds to the CPE. Featuring music by DJ Eric Brewer Cuentos, Valentine’s cookies, and a program honoring CPE co-founders and long-time collective contributors.
