Heart of Glass


The affections and devotions that you and your sweetheart share on Valentine's Day may last a lifetime (if you're lucky), but the gifts and trinkets associated with the holiday are normally fleeting fancies. That box of Belgian chocolates? Polished off in one night. Those long-stemmed roses? Withered and died before the end of the month. That's why the Third Degree Glass Factory (5200 Delmar Boulevard; 314-367-4527 or makes such an ideal place for a Valentine's Day destination. Not only can you see glassblowers from across the United States making their wares, but you can purchase a handblown keepsake (or make one yourself) that is sure to stick around long after that lingerie has been retired to the back of the drawer. For the holiday, the arts space is throwing the Hearts on Fire Passion Party, with the chance to make your own token of affection for that special person while enjoying a cash bar and the Mardi Gras-ready sounds of After Barbed Wire. The event is free and begins at 6 p.m.; there is an additional charge to make glass tiles or paperweights ($20 to $30).
