After adding “brush teeth” to your calendar, you wondered if your life was over scheduled. (Ya think?)

Spontaneity is good for the soul. Not to mention the stomach.

Get a taste at X-marx, an underground dinner club that sets up shop everywhere from West Side mansions to antique furniture galleries. Local chefs Abraham Conlon, Adrienne Lo, and John Bowers helm the kitchen; you BYOB and feast.

Sign up for the mailing list to learn about upcoming meals: At X-Markets (intimate five-course dinners), the chefs shop an ethnic hood the day of and improvise that night’s menu. March markets include Spanish, Portuguese-Asian fusion, and veggie. Junkets are preplanned, seven- to fourteen-course themed meals (think Belgian Beer and Chinese New Year).

X-marx will e-mail you 24 hours in advance with the deets (location, time).

You’ll gladly give them your order.

Take cover: It’s almost Valentine’s Day. Peruse our lingerie arsenal to organize your panty raid.
