Get Out Your Handkerchiefs

Kity Ironton of Pandora Jewelry loves her customers. In fact, like many independent retailers, she’s not complaining about hard times. “Even with the economy the way it is, Denver has supported us, so we want to show our support for them,” she says, and that’s why Ironton and her crew at Pandora are hosting a Black Hearts Day post-Valentine’s Day celebration tonight. “This is like our gift back to the community,” she adds. And generous it is: In addition to the general festivities, everything — that’s everything — in the trendy accessories store will be on sale, though the event particularly caters, with tongue in cheek, to all people who felt left out on Valentine’s Day because they lacked...a Valentine. It’s one holiday when you’ve gotta have one in order to participate.

“We’re a bunch of girls with black hearts inviting others to celebrate that we don't have Valentines,” Ironton jokes, and this is what she’ll be offering to soothe your broken heart: Chocolate bonbons, spins by DJ Comatoast, giveaways galore and an invitation to participate for prizes in a Bereft Bad Poetry Contest for heartsick sonnet writers and moaning meter maids, not to mention her ace in the hole: “There’s going to be a kissing booth, with a very special, super-secret, super-saucy hunk.” Who? Her lips are sealed. But he will be wearing a smoking jacket.

Wear your best funeral gear and pay Pandora an after-hours visit between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.; for information, go to or call 303-832-7073.
Sun., Feb. 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m., 2009
