CARNIVORES COLLIDE: We all know that we should be watching our figures, especially with Valentines Day on the horizon, but we're going to call Thursdays our new cheat day. Who is to blame for this lack of self control? Kitchen 305 at The Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort. Their new ALL-U-CAN-MEAT Thursdays is not one to miss if you enjoy yourself a nice piece of juicy meat. For a very affordable $25, you get a soup or salad, two sides and as much meat as your heart desires. It's not just slabs of beef, it's things like beef kabobs, steak Diane, short ribs, chicken breast wrapped in bacon, lamb, mango kabobs and more. Be sure to wear your buffet pants. 5:30 P.M.
SHOWROOM OF LOVE: Ladies, don't have a valentine this year? Don't worry, that's what we have MasterCard for. Just in time for the Single-Awareness Day on Sunday, Lilac and Lilies boutique is hosting a shopping party celebrating the perfect dress, everyday accessories, cute couture and tons of fashion worn by our favorite celebs. Not only will this event be a shop-a-holics dream, but will feature a Black Halo trunk show. Guests are invited to indulge in complimentary cocktails, a decadent dessert bar and imported cheeses all night long. All of these drinks and hors d'oeuvres come with a side of discount because all non-sale merchandise is 20 percent off. Thanks, cupid. 6 P.M.
BRANDY BASH: None of us want to admit it, but it's easy to love VH1 reality shows. One that might have caught your eye is an educational program called "For The Love of Ray J." Well, we're not sure if Ray J found love, but we do know that he is headed to Mansion tonight. The reality star will be present for a very special birthday party for singer, actress, big sister and reality TV star, Brandy. Not only will the birthday bash be the brother and sister duo with a couple hundred of their closet friends, but they will also be filming for their new reality show. Be sure to look cute ladies, Ray J could still be looking for love. 11 P.M.
