Belt it out.

Don’t Tell Mama’s Glee Cabaret
Rakesh Satyal, author of the heartbreakingly funny novel Blue Boy, performs an evening of torch songs from the unabashedly nerdy, totally unironic, almost embarrasingly cheerful hit show.
Why: Drama kids, unite.
When: Fri., 7 p.m.
Where: 343 W. 46th St., b/t Eighth & Ninth Aves. (212-757-0788). Tickets are $10; reserve a seat here (they’re going fast!).

Heartbreaker Baker
Savor Brooklynite Eleanor Eagle’s modestly sized, heart-shaped cookie/bar confections in flavors like oatmeal fig with orange glaze and chocolate with caramel and sea salt.
Why: It’s like Pat Benatar and the women of Heart formed a baking club.
When: Just give them 36 hours’ notice (72 hours for a custom label).
Where: To order, call 920-644-3278; e-mail eleanor@heartbreakerbaker.com; or go to heartbreakerbaker.com.

Hayden-Harnett’s Kapow Sale
Last chance to get 70 percent off apparel and 40 percent off bags.
Why: Itsy-bitsy suede shorts and fluorescent floral bikinis.
When: Sun., noon-8 p.m.
Where: 253 Elizabeth St., b/t Houston & Prince Sts. (212-334-2247).

Thistle & Clover’s Open Call
The emerging talent-supportive boutique is in search of the next big clothing/jewelry designer. Budding designers have half an hour with the judges to prove their design prowess.
Why: There are two slots left, saved just for DailyCandy readers.
When: Mon., 5 & 5:30 p.m.
Where: 221 DeKalb Ave., b/t Adelphi St. & Clermont Ave., Fort Greene (718-855-5577). E-mail info@thistleclover.com with a brief bio, images of your work, and/or a link to your website.

Cupcakeland Opens
Williamsburg finally gets a dedicated cakery for sweet tooths and sweethearts. Expect reasonable prices and daily rotating flavors like green tea, lemon-raspberry, and mint.
Why: We suppose it was inevitable.
When: Tues.-Sat., noon-8 p.m.; Sun., noon-7 p.m.
Where: 390 Metropolitan Ave., b/t N. 5th & Havemeyer Sts., Williamsburg (718-388-5260).

The Love Affair
New e-commerce site offers free same-day delivery in NYC on brands like Dolce Vita, Betsey Johnson, Rebecca Minkoff, and Ko.des.
Why: Thru Sun. DailyCandy readers get 25 percent off with code LOVECANDY at checkout.
When: Between your morning and afternoon meetings.
Where: Wherever your boss can’t see your screen.

It’s your biting cynicism that we love most. That’s why we made you this special Anti-Valentine’s Day guide.
