Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Do soppy declarations of love make you want to cringe (or vomit)? Sounds like you’re looking for Anti-Valentine’s Day events. We get it: Love can be gross—especially if you’re single in New York on February 14. Luckily, there are several Valentine’s Day parties and events that cater to bitter, lonely and unromantic people. We rounded up some of the best activities, which range from a Galentine’s celebration, which gives you an excuse to hang with your girl gang, and a depressing Morrissey dance party, where you can cry into a goblet of wine. Just so you know, there’s no shame in treating yourself to pricey chocolates or blooms from the best flower shops in town. (Yeah, we’ve done it. So what?)
