Remember Valentine's Day? And you promised that special someone you'd whisk them away for the weekend to a romantic destination? You screwed that up pretty thoroughly, failing to even secure reservations for dinner. Tonight, make it up to him/her with the next best thing to a quick getaway: The State Symphony Orchestra of Mexico performs at 8 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis (4431 Lindell Boulevard; 314-533-7662 or That's right, the sunny romance of Mexico comes to you, in the guise of a world-class symphony orchestra! And you even get special musical guest Alfonso Moreno. The classical guitarist performs Rodrigo's Fantasia para un gentilhombre with the orchestra, adding his lush tone to the cathedral's gorgeous acoustics. Tickets are $15 to $35 — you'll never find a flight to Mexico less expensive than that.
