Random Things For Singles To Do in LA on VDay
Sounds like a dreaded war loss when you say VDay but for some people, the notion of lovesick couples eager to overspend on obscenely expensive gifts, overly indulgent meals, or the forced sense of romanticism literally makes them want to gag. (Maybe even with a pitchfork!) But alas, dear singles, we shan’t forget you too want to have, in the sentiment of Jessica Biel, an “Anti-Valentine’s Day” party so we humbly abide. Ok, not “we” but our fellow restaurateurs and cocktail makers.
Below is a list of where you can go when you want to celebrate your singlehood on VDay! (Cue … duh duh duh …) But really, go have fun. You’re single and you’re fabulous!
NOTE: These events are all ON February 14th.
