Valentine's Day is almost here and you either love it or hate it. If you're among those who loathes the Hallmark Holiday with the bombardment of chocolate, flowers, and dinner reservations, DC has some options for you!
Tickets are priced at $29 per person, and include hors d'oeuvres and two special anti-valentine cocktails: The Bitter Pill, It’s Not Me, It’s You, Love on the Rocks, Seduction and Single Minded. Those will make watching other couples on Valentine's Day a little more bearable.
