New York: Top 5 Anti-Valentine’s Day Parties

imageFebruary 14 is coming. Hearts, candies, and overpriced prix-fixe menus, and lucky for you, several Anti-Valentine’s Day events to get sloshed at (and perhaps find a partner to take home to properly hate on the fake holiday). Here are five spots to take a piss on love.

1. Village Pourhouse (Greenwich Village) – There’s a party going on after 10 p.m. called the “Ex-orcism Party.” Bring a photo of your ex and take your turn taping their mug to the dart board. If you hit bull’s eye, you win an hour of free open bar. 2. The Sunburnt Cow (East Village) – The second annual “No Love at the Cow” kicks off at 6 p.m. $20 gets you two hours of an open bar, and plenty of chances to mingle with the other singles at the bar.

3. Bowlmor Lanes (Greenwich Village) – 42 lanes, drink specials all night, singles in bowling shoes — it’s a strike. 4. Studio B (Greenpoint) – Second Annual Valentine’s Death Prom, DJ’d by Trouble & Bass. Sounds gruesome, but also, awesome. 5. Absinthe Wine Bar (Lower East Side) – Chef Nelson German’s four-course $45 prix fixe includes a glass of champagne or glass of wine, and it emphasizes dishes that are “(bitter)sweet.”
