Annoyed by all the coupling around you on February 14th? Well, here's something to make you smile - it's a great day for saving some cash if you're single - (meaning you don't have to pay the expensive prices as all the couples do).
Here are some options for you and your single friends to enjoy the night, regardless of your relationship status:
First up, for the somewhat refined among us - Singular City is "hijacking" Valentine's Day by hosting a party at supperclub, an "exclusive, edgy, and theatrical experience" at the old Hollywood Vogue Theatre. Here's how the evening will go down: first, you'll be greeted with a complimentary shot to get you a little warmed up. Then you'll proceed to the cocktail lounge area for your complimentary glass of champagne. Sounding good so far? Throw in a four-course dinner, entertainment, and the DJ party for a mere $99. The price tag for couples? $250. Check it out, and sign up in advance to get the special pricing and VIP seating.
Looking for a cheaper option? North Hollywood lounge The Other Door is inviting guests to "bring someone you tolerate" and forget about V-Day over live music and cocktails. $5 at the door. If you dress in black you get a free shot.
Birds in Los Feliz is hosting their annual Anti-Valentine's Day party. Celebrate with martinis and enter your sad break-up story for a chance to win prizes.
Lucky Strike in Hollywood is offering several parties for singles-only on Valentine's Day. Events include speed dating, a singles mixer, an "early evening" happy hour, and some bowling of course. Did I mention $5 bowling and $5 Cupid Shuffle cocktails?
So, don't stay home if you can help it. Happy V-Day!
