SAN JOSE — Yu-Ai Kai’s Crab & Spaghetti Feed will take place on Saturday, Feb. 14, at San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin Annex, 640 N. 5th St. (near Jackson).

The dinner will include fresh, succulent Dungeness crab, all the salad, spaghetti and garlic bread you can eat, and dessert. Those dining in will be treated to a special Valentine’s-themed evening of entertainment provided by singer Mark Takeda, performing some swoon-worthy and toe-tapping Japanese and American standards.
Also featured will be Yu-Ai Kai’s own couples ballroom dancing class students, who will be performing.
Diners will have the chance to bid on a wide selection of silent auction items, and many chances to win in the opportunity drawings.

• Take-out orders are $40 ($45 after Jan. 31) for those who want a more intimate Valentine’s dinner without the hassle of cooking
