UA Presents: Rene Marie. If this jazz singer's soaring voice and fabulous stage presence aren't enough to leave you feeling inspired, then her story should be. Marie first dipped her toes into the world of music when she took a year of piano lessons at age 9, and then began writing her own music and performing with a band when she was 15. But she married at age 18, had two kids and focused on being a mother until she was 41, when her son encouraged her to start singing again. Her husband gave her an ultimatum: pursue singing or continue being married. She picked singing, and we're glad she did. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14. Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. $20 to $45+

Thunder Canyon. In the spirit of crippling solitu-, er, I mean Valentine's Day, Thunder Canyon is releasing "La Flama Rosa Double Red IPA." Put some spice in your life by putting some beer in your belly. And if that doesn't sound like a good time, there will be plenty of brewery patrons to hang out with. 5 to 10 p.m.

Pueblo Vida. Some good things aren't meant to last. Bid farewell to the last keg of "Resonance" at this Barrel-Aged Beer Event. There will also be an opening of fresh a round of another barrel-aged beer, "Fassweizen." 4-10 p.m.

Valentine's Day Four-Course Dinner. Enjoy and fancy and delicious four-course meal with your sweetheart, or, take both tickets and eat yourself into oblivion because there is no sweetheart to eat with. Either way, you'll be enjoying some of the best food The Coronet has to offer. Plus, live music from Gabrielle Pietrangelo, Ben Degain and Thoger Lund. Reservations only: contact 520-222-9889. 5-10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14. 402 E Ninth St. $65.

Events compiled by Emily Dieckman and Jeff Gardner.
