10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16 | St. Matthew’s Tavern, 1300 N. Mills Ave. | orlandobeergarden.com
From the very kitschy hearts of those lovable loungey lovebirds, Ralph and Gina (the alter egos of real-life couple Bethany Avello and Jasper Bleu), this Valentine’s Day-themed show features a theatrical conceit. St. Matthew’s Tavern will be turned into a fake restaurant called M.O.M.s (Matthew’s on Mills), where Ralph and Gina perform their lounge act. Comedian Clayton Anderson plays the role of a wisecracking waiter, serving such guests as Paulie Pacino, wrestler Eddie Graves and Cupid himself. We hear that Vinnie Cheeky and the Dreamboats, a cover band that Ralph used to play with back in the ’70s, will make an appearance, so expect the full-band treatment for some of your favorite love songs.
