”Blue Valentine” is an annual tradition originally spearheaded by Omaha legend, MoJoPo (born Michael Joesph Pryor), 14 years ago at the 49’r, a popular bar/venue in Midtown Omaha that gave way to the development of a new CVS a decade ago. Blue Valentine serves as both a unique space/event for those who find themselves alone around Valentine’s Day , as well as a fun opportunity for connection one last time before Valentine’s Day.
