New York City Single Valentine's

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Apparently over 5 million of New Yorkers are single, on the ratio of 53% female and 47% male. Phew! So, if you didn't get struck by Cupid's arrow, instead of going to watch "Fifty Shades of Grey" on your own on this Valentine's Day, I created a list of things for y'all fabulous singletons to do in solidarity. Whether you're looking for a crazy dance party for you and your single pals, an anti-Valentine's movie marathon, a comedy show to beat the down-on-love blues, or the chance to have a one-night stand on the quick, we understand how important it is to avoid vomit-inducing couples at any cost. If you can't join 'em, beat 'em...isn't that the expression?

Black Hearts Singles Party Latitude Bar & Grill will host a Black Hearts Party for Singles, which will feature life-size voodoo dolls. Sweetheart candies with sayings like "it's not you, it's me" and prizes for the best breakup story. There will be 13 craft beers as well some specialty cocktails for $5, including Cupid’s Broken Arrow Champagne. Cocktail.
