Have an Effing Romantic Geekend!

You guys, hearts all around! Although, honestly, every time I think of V-Day, I think of this.

But Morena Baccarin the Alien Hive Queen is just as awesome as Morena Baccarin the Prostitute with a Heart of Gold and Morena Baccarin the, wait,  Other Alien Hive Queen.

And dreamy as all of them, so why not have a Morena Baccarin is a SciFi Queen Valentine’s Themed Night? Well, hopefully because you’re having a Zombies ARE Romantic Valentine’s Day. But I won’t object if you decide to slip a bit of Baccarin into your V-day.

If neither of those sounds like your cup of tea, why don’t you try some of these local events. If you must.
