The Day | Flowers and a Taste of Spring

Be My ValentineTim Schreier

Good morning, East Village.

And a happy Valentine’s Day from all at The Local. We hope that you find love in the air, but if not, you’ll definitely find spring. This week’s unseasonably warm temps are already in full swing with highs expected to surpass 50 degrees on Thursday and Friday.

If community service is more your bag, DNAinfo wrote about some East Village events for philanthropic couples.

And while we’re on the subject of spring, you might be seeing fewer open street fairs once the warm weather decides to stick around. DNAinfo reports that residents and storeowners will be taking the matter up with Community Board 1 next week.

More in East Village changes: the Department of Health closed Yerba Buena on Saturday, citing a long list of sanitary code violations. So some romance-minded diners will have to look elsewhere tonight.
