Whether or not you buy into the Hallmark Hype (did you know the Greeting Card Association estimates that one billion V-day cards are sent each year?!), we could all celebrate the love in our lives. You don’t have to have a significant other to have fun on the holiday. You can hang out with friends or buy yourself a box of fancy chocolates!
Here are a few NYC alternatives to the typical Valentine’s date night dinner:
Art enthusiast? How about a love themed gallery tour?
– “Love and Lust in American Art” at the Brooklyn Museum (1:00 p.m.)
– Afterwards, stop by the nearby Gold Star Beer Counter to chat about all that lusty art.
All about the lurrrvvveee? Celebrate with thousands of complete strangers who also LOVE love! Complete with surprise proposals and weddings right in the heart of it all.
– Love in Times Square (all day)
Anti V-day? Don’t worry, my apathetic comrades. We’ve got that covered, too. How about a gory haunted house date?
– Bloody Valentine’s Weekend at Blood Manor. (6:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.)
