If you would rather let your hair down instead of dressing it up, head to Rummin’ Tings and participate in the V-Day special “Screw’D” party! Upon purchasing a beverage, you will be given a screw or a bolt, then all you have to do is find your other half by matching the right pair of screws and bolts, and you’ll get another round on the house! Even if you’re not looking to be partnered up by fate, you can still get two drinks for just $80. We’ll drink to that!
