For many folks, Valentine’s Day means buying roses for your loved one and then taking her or him out to a fancy dinner.

The North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center celebrates a little differently each year with the Valentine Erotique performance.

An annual classic, this erotic extravaganza returns at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with a brand new array of poetry, stand-up comedy, sexy skits, chocolate desserts, love raffle, and other sensuous entertainment.

Local favorites Bill Gainer, Bo “The Whiskey Yogi”, Michelle Cox Margulies, Chris Olander, and Ivy Pera will join Sacramento’s Lytton Bell in stimulating the senses with provocative poetry.

Comedian Casey Burke will have attendees rolling on the floor with his outrageous and over the top stand up comedy.

Truth or Dare dance troupe is joining the fun this year with their “tongue and cheek” style burlesque.

Magician extraordinaire Nick Fedoroff will fearlessly guide the audience on this exotically entertaining evening of sexy shenanigans and amatory adventure.

Any attendee may enter the chocolate dessert contest.

During intermission, the winners will be announced with prizes awarded for several categories — such as most decadent and creamiest and dreamiest.

All desserts will then be made available for the audience to indulge.

At 6:30 p.m., the doors will open for viewing the Erotic Art Show.

This show is an opportunity for local artists to display works that may not be shown in a standard venue.

Much of the work will be for sale to public.

Due to the adult content of this performance and art show, viewer discretion is advised.

Located 20 miles from downtown Nevada City on the San Juan Ridge, at 17894 Tyler Foote Road, the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center draws visitors from all over the region.
