Anti-Valentine's Parties in NYC

[Updated Feb. 14, 2011 ]

While Valentine's Day may be the night for happy loving couples, it will also see its share of "Anti-Valentine's" parties, a.k.a. parties for singles and others not into the whole cupid & flowers thing. Here is a re-cap of some of the best Anti-Valentine's parties in NYC.

Third & Long presents
The Anti-Valentine's Night Party
Curtis says, "It's the day that all single folks and Hallmark card haters despise the most: Valentine's Day. You see all of the lovey-dovey couples walking around star-gazing, roses in hand, chocolates and romantic dinners. As a single person, it's enough to make you puke.
Instead of sitting at home feeling sorry for yourself while watching re-runs of "Love, Actually", you would be better served hanging out with other like-minded singles at Third and Long."

No expectations for the night. No judgments.
Just a bunch of single folks getting together and having a good time without having to think about the dreaded "V-word".
Throughout the night you will enjoy:
$1 Bud/Bud Light Mugs
$2 all other Domestic Draft Mugs
$4 "Flaming Hearts" shots (Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey/Cranberry)
A music play list specifically tailored to acknowledge disdain for the holiday

RSVP via facebook
