cheap carnations, sugary love poems
and grade-school doilies, sure, but
let's be real. Today isn't really about
weepy sentiments. It's about choco-
late and fucking. Daily Arts gives you
the inside scoop on this season's
most titillating treats.

It may be pricey, but this ritzy chocolate
sampler is a must-buy to satisfy your car-
nal cravings. The Barcelona Bar's blend of
hickory-smoked almonds and grey sea salt
sends a smooth, sultry rush to your, ahem,
tongue; and one bite of the Red Fire Bar is
guaranteed to rev up more than just your
taste buds.

When the love potions kick in, your kinkier
side will embrace these raunchy treats. Brush
on the love batter, strap on the sweets and see
how many licks it takes to get to the center of
the weighty (anatomically impressive, and we
must admit, quite tasty) Lollicock. Don't be
afraid to get a little messy - that's what your
tongue is for.
4. Truffles, prices vary, at Schakolad
and Zingerman's
If you're not ready to get down and dirty,
we've got you covered. For the classiest guilty
pleasure, it's impossible to go wrong with
traditional chocolate truffles. Our favorite is
Schakolad's signature raspberry truffle, but
Zingerman's comes in close second with a gen-
erous selection of heart-shaped luxuries.

After basket,
price mayvary,
at Schakolad
If you find yourself
tired after a hard night's
work, a morning-after basket from Schakolad
might help. Filled with a sensual array of hot
chocolate, coffee and biscotti, there's nothing
better than a sweet breakfast to keep the fire
burning well into tomorrow.

The brothers Brancaleone don't look like
filmmakers at first glance.
Meeting on a chilly February morning at
Starbucks, the two come across like any other
guys. Nicholas goes nuts over the extreme heat
of his tea, while Anthony makes sure he gets
his order. They sit down and casually gripe
over bitter weather and the fear of impending
Ann Arbor parking tickets. Dropping names

like Derrick May and Jack White, they're like
the two surprisingly cool music dudes straight
out of a Nick Hornby novel.
The brothers toast, softly, to acknowledge
the beginning of another interview. They're
here for their movie, "A Detroit Thing," which
will be showingtomorrow night at 7 p.m. at the
Michigan Theater. Currently running the festi-
val circuit, the brothers plan to show their film
- the Ann Arbor premiere - and follow with a
question-and-answer session.
The film is a documentary chronicling

Detroit's music scene and the people trying to
succeed in it, featuring candid interviews and
performance footage from the likes of Detroit
mainstays like the Howling Diablos, Robert
Bradley's Blackwater Surprise, The Twistin'
Tarantulas and even Kid Rock. But it was no
short road gettingthis film to where it is today.
"We shot over a period of five years and
we shot about 25 bands," Anthony said. "We
wanted to make sure that we expose ourselves
as well as possible to what these musicians go

You've all been waiting
and the time has finally
arrived: It's The Bang!
time at the Blind Pig again.
Come take in the sights
of (fearless) dancing hip-
sters, and don't be afraid
to give it a go yourself. It
all goes down Saturday at
9:30 p.m. Tickets are $8
or $11 for anyone between
18 and 21.
