This weekend, from 7 to 11 p.m., the Second Saturday Art Walk delivers a steaming dose of culture to get those juices flowing with plenty of free booze on tap to make for the perfect cheap date during the Valentine weekend. Discover Peruvian portraits aping Renaissance masterpieces by the likes of Da Vinci, pictures of slumbering soldiers by an Oscar nominee, snaps of grizzled misfits, and photos of women on the verge posing in their drab digs. There are also shows teeming with marine animal and plant life and others dealing with the inexorable tides of time. There is even a boozy blowout at Miguel Paredes's fresh-squeezed joint where you can treat those peepers to a whopping 3-D indoor mural of a Big Apple street scene. Paredes is popping the cork on his sprawling space and regaling his public with enough free grog to float the Titanic, live music, grub and desert. Here are our picks for what to see.
