Jumpstart your Valentine's Day with some love for furry, four-legged creatures at the San Francisco SPCA fourth annual "Be Mine" party and adopt-a-thon. The annual event is happening next Friday, February 6 from 5 to 9 pm and features a fashion show filled with vegan-friendly designs from local brands like Jill Milan, Betabrand, and Claire Farwell. The catwalk lights up at 7pm, but you'll want to get there well ahead of go time to grab a cocktail, eat some vegetarian bites, and snag a seat—possibly next to Instagram celeb and chiweenie, Tuna. The biggest draw of the evening (aside from giving love to animals in need) just may be the tattoo pop-up shop from Let It Bleed Tattoo Parlor, with permanent ink starting at just $40. So plan ahead for that wrist tat of Fido's name. Admission is free, but you'll need to sign up for tickets here.
