MOONLIGHT AND MARTINIS: Unmask your inner Don Draper for the inaugural Easter Seals UCP upscale fundraiser a la “Mad Men” style.

When: Friday, 6 to 10 p.m. $40 per person; $70 per couple. | More info

VALENTINE’S DAY: Whether you “Bark and Wine” with a canine Valentine at the SPCA’s adoption event (fine wines, beers, treats all all the puppy kisses you can handle; $30 per person) or swoon your sweetheart Heart of the Ocean-style with the Titanic-inspired tipples at Daily Planet’s Star-Crossed Lovers three-course dinner (including a pass to see “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” at a later date; $50 per person), clearly there is plenty of love to go around. Where: Everywhere. You can’t hide. Check triangle.com for local events and listings.

MARY POPPINS: Fire the cannon, open the umbrella and fly over to the D for a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious spoonful of sugar, as the world’s fave nanny takes stage. Where: DPAC, Durham. When: Tue. through Sun., times vary. $24-$116 | More info

TOP GUN: No, it’s not 1986. Although the rampant aviators about town might confuse. But if you’ve got the need ... the need for speed — and a flashback — take the highway to the danger zone (or in this case Marbles) for some 3-D Maverick-Goose-Iceman and company IMAX big-screen action. C’mon, you can handle it ... ya big stud. Where: IMAX Theatre, Raleigh. When: Through Thursday. | More info

HOOPS 4 HOPE: No need to hang on the sideline when you can get in on the action. Sport your prettiest pink (you too, fellas) and help bolster breast cancer awareness on the court and in the community for the 8th annual Hoops 4 Hope event at Reynolds. Wanna do more? Donate by joining the Play4Kay team. No matter who you cheer for on Tobacco Road, this is one event for which we can all be Pack Proud. Where: Reynolds Coliseum, Raleigh. When: Sunday, 2:30 p.m. Youth, $5. Adult, $10. Monday raised at Hoops 4 Hope will be donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. | More info
