See The Made In China Higher Brothers At Cambridge Room, Find Love With Amélie At Texas Theater And Feel The Love This Valentine’s Day All Around The City.

It’s an election year and we know who we’re backing: Governor Angus, a three-year-old dog from Hutchinson, Kansas.

Terran Wully, Angus’ human, decided to enter his dog into the race after reading about six teenagers filing to run for governor because — get this — Kansas doesn’t have an age requirement for people running for that office.

Of course, there’s also the fact that you have to be — you know — human to run for office. The Kansas Secretary of State ruled that Angus can’t legally run for office even with the age loophole because he’s a dog. And as adorable as the world might be if dogs ran things, we would also live in chaos. Treats would be free, of course, so that makes one wonder…

While Angus may have his limitations, you do not. And you are free to head out to any of these events going down today on this day of Saint Valentine’s. So get out there, have fun and spread the love, Dallas.

Amélie at Texas Theatre
A French-language classic about how a very quiet woman and an equally awkward young man seduce each other by stalking each other around their city. Just kidding. Well, not really, but this film is hella romantic.

The Higher Brothers at Cambridge Room (House of Blues)
