According to legend, Saint Valentine was a pretty wild character who was incarcerated and executed for performing illegal marriages back in the third century, so there’s more to celebrate this Sunday, Feb. 14 than the memory of excruciating grade school card swaps.

So reclaim Valentine’s day from the mass-market chocolatiers and minions of mediocrity and celebrate his legacy of radical love with dining, partying, music and fun in the Catskills. Make a weekend of it: we’ve listed a few local hotels and inns that are running lovefest specials.

O'Neill's Shire Pub- MY SO CALLED BAND

February 19, 2016 - 9:00pm

My So-Called Band takes you back to a time before Creed and Hannah Montana, before George W. Bush and 9/11, before skinny jeans and American Idol. A time of flannels and ripped denim, Umbros and Hypercolor tees, the Fresh Prince and 90210. A time when mix tapes were king and the youth of America found an alternative way to rock. The 90's provided us with a soundtrack to it all, and My So-Called Band invites you to dive into this ocean of nostalgia with them.

In front of an audience of 23 people, representatives from the town of Andes in Delaware County, the town of Hunter in Greene County, the hamlet of Livingston Manor in Sullivan County and the town of Woodstock in Ulster County brainstormed ways to work together to attract more tourists to the Catskills.  Read more
