Johnny Rotten once described love as two minutes and fifty-two seconds of squishy sounds." While we disagree with the time (isnt it more like 15 minutes?), we dig the cynicism, especially around Valentines Day.
However, even heartbroken, bitter men and women can enjoy Sweet Heart Day at the Arizona Science Center, which has partnered with the American Heart Association to provide families with fun and educational activities like making their own "bloody" heart prints, a Heart Healthy Prize Wheel, and blood-pressure screenings. So instead of hiring a babysitter and getting all dressed up to wait in line for an hour to snag a dinner table on V-Day, consider taking yourself and the kiddos to the center.
