You’re smart. You don’t try to do your big Valentine’s Day date on Valentine’s Day itself. You find a way to celebrate on Valentine’s Day Eve, entertaining your big crush by avoiding the big crush. We’ve got three great options for you to choose from tonight, all guaranteed to get your romantic juices revved up whether you like to be seduced by ballads, thrilled by Beethoven or stirred up by the grace and machismo of Spanish dance.
Michael Bublé. The satin-voiced crooner kicks off his tour in Tampa for a special Valentine’s Day show. 8 p.m., Amalie Arena.
Farruquito. “The greatest flamenco dancer of the century” (according to the New York Times), Farruquito takes furious footwork to new heights in a solo flamenco performance. 8 p.m., Straz.
Palladium Chamber Players. World-class chamber players grace the Palladium’s Hough Hall stage in this monthly, Wednesday-night series. Tonight’s program of works by Beethoven, Schumann and Korngold features Amy Schwartz Moretti on violin; Danielle Farina on viola; Julian Schwarz on cello; and Marika Bournaki on piano. 7:30, The Palladium.
