Weekly Freebie: Chow Bella's Candy Hearts at Crescent Ballroom

Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: Chow Bella Presents Candy Hearts.

Disclaimer: Katie Johnson is one of the featured storytellers in Chow Bella Presents Candy Hearts.

When it comes to Valentine's Day, we're all about the free love. And while none of us would like to break any hearts on Cupid's big day, we'd also prefer not to break the bank. Fortunately, Chow Bella has come to rescue with Candy Hearts, the second installment of its storytelling series happening 7 p.m., February 12 at Crescent Ballroom.

This free Valentine-themed reading will feature stories of love and food from such born-to-preform writers as: best-selling author and Jackalope Ranch columnist Laurie Notaro, Jackalope Ranch contributors Cynthia Clark Harvey, Katie Johnson, Julie Peterson, and Deborah Sussman, New Times managing editor Amy Silverman, New Times theater critic Robrt Pela, as well as Elizabeth Maria Naranjo, Judy Nichols, Sativa Peterson, Kim Porter, Eric Schaefer, and Kathy West.

Phoenix New Times' music editor, Jason Woodbury, will be mixing heart beats throughout the night, Crescent's Cocina 10 will be serving up food drink, and St. Mary's Food Bank will be collecting generous donations of canned goods (in place of a cover).
