It's almost February — if you haven't thought about Valentine's Day yet, now's the time!

Here's what else is happening this weekend:

📀 Vinyl Tastings hosts a six-course plated dinner that's "thoughtfully curated to capture the essence" of Kendrick Lamar's "Good Kid Mad City" album.

  • Each course is expertly paired with exquisite wines, "enhancing the flavors and melodies," organizers say.
  • Tickets to the event at Spotlite start at $75. Seatings at 4:30 and 7:30pm.

🏀 Flint native Kyle Kuzma — plus former Michigan basketball stars Jordan Poole and Isaiah Livers — return Saturday as members of the Wizards to play against the Pistons.

  • Tickets to Saturday's noon game start at $20.

🕰️ Then a good basketball team comes to LCA Sunday for the Pistons' matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

  • The game was pushed up from 6pm to 2pm so fans could watch the Lions game at 6:30pm.
  • Tickets to Sunday's game start at $20.

🎉 Watch the Lions at downtown record store and bar Paramita Sound starting at 4pm Sunday.

  • Free!

🦁 Or watch the NFC Championship game at one of these 10 bars as compiled by MLive.
