Attn: Singles! 5 Valentine’s Day Options That Aren’t Actually for Valentines

It’s a stupid, made up holiday anyway

The cocktails at HIDE are potent enough to forget about the idiot that most recently broke your heart

We’re not going to waste anyone’s time by writing a cute list of romantic things to do on Valentine’s Day. Sorry, but if you have a significant other and haven’t figured out your plans by now, that’s completely your problem. The pricey prix-fixe dinners are booked.

This list is strictly for those who wish February 14th was a normal Monday. We hear you, and we present you with a couple of food and drink events to keep you from sitting alone on the couch cuddling your TV remote.

Galentine’s Bash

  • Where: CocoAndre Chocolatier
  • Date: February 11th, 8 - 10:30 PM

Details: Get your girl squad together and eat your feelings in designer chocolate. Your ticket buys you endless cocktails and sweets, craft table access, dancing, and of course, chocolate tastings. Tickets are $27.50 for basic ticket, $40 for basic ticket plus private chocolate making session with Master Chocolatier and can be purchased on Eventbrite.

Love Stinks Valentine’s Day Party

  • Where: Mac’s Southside
  • Date: February 11th, 9 PM

Details: Endure a little speed dating and get a free cocktail! Sign up at the bar before 10 PM for the flirting with strangers part, or sit at the bar and enjoy drink specials all night.

Second Annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Singles’ Bash

  • Where: Victor Tangos
  • Date: February 14th, 5 PM - Close

Details: Victor Tangos will be decorated in black to help you mourn your love life this Monday. There will be drink specials including a shot made just for the lonely.

Come n’ HIDE

  • Where: HIDE
  • Date: February 14th, 7 PM - 9 PM

Details: Deep Ellum’s newest cocktail bar, HIDE, is hosting a single’s party featuring themed cocktails and food specials. HIDE will also be featuring local vendors including watch maker Jack Mason so you can buy yourself the gift your imaginary Valentine never could afford.

Stonedeck Pizza Pub Valentine’s Day

  • Where: Stonedeck Pizza Pub
  • Date: February 14th, 7 PM - 9 PM

Details: Okay, so technically, this event could appeal to couples too, featuring pizza in the shape of a heart and an annoyingly named moonshine flight called “Moonlight Kisses.” But think about it - you can’t eat a heart shaped pizza without destroying it, and there is nothing better than moonshine to help you forget what day it is.
