No date? No problem!
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just for lovers. Galentine’s Day, Anti-valentines Day, Date-yourself Valentine’s Day; no matter what your relationship status is, there’s a way to celebrate Cupid’s holiday this year. If you’re lost for inspiration, we’ve got your back. Take a look below at these 6 alternative ways you can ring V-Day in 2019.
1. Galentine’s Drunk Yoga
Get together with all the single ladies for a relaxing and fun evening of yoga and drinks! The party kicks off with a 15-minute happy hour with some wine, music and mingling. Your Drunk Yoga teacher will then bring everyone to their mats for a 45-minute beginner-friendly yoga class with wine in-hand! Come to laugh and celebrate love, self-love that is! You can get your ticket to the event ahead of time here.
2. Drink your way through the day with some ehhm, *sex-inspired* drinks
Sex on the beach, a “French Kiss” Martini, and a BJ shot are just three examples of what you get with this exciting deal at Clinton Hall in Midtown. You’ll collect stamps throughout the night with your Valentine’s Day drink passport and the first person to complete their passport gets a bottle of champagne on the house! It doesn’t matter if you’re single or taken, this fun party will get the sparks flying! Get your ticket here.
3. Head to a special Valentine’s Day Burlesque
The Brooklyn Bowl is hosting an amazing Valentine’s Day event this year featuring live music & bawdy burlesque from some of New York’s finest performers. Doors to the show open at 6 pm: expect an extravaganza equally as naughty as it is fabulous! Get your tickets and find more information here.
4. Get Lei’d at a Stoplight party
You’ve probably been to a stoplight party at least once in your life- you know, where green means single and looking to mingle, yellow means it’s complicated and red means it’s a no-go. This year, Mr. Wu’s Basement is bringing its own twist on the popular themed party to Valentine’s Day weekend. Make your way to the underground basement club for bottomless boozy punch, funky DJs and even a kissing photo booth! Join in on the hula-dancing and once you’re there, don’t forget to dawn your lei! You can get your general admission tickets to the party (which includes the bottomless boozy punch and hors d’oeuvres from 8 pm- 9 pm) here!
5. Sip on drinks and indulge in a candy bar
What says V Day better than candy? The Mondrian terrace is hosting, “Lovestruck,” an event for singles and couples alike that will boast a specialty candy bar! Your ticket to this party gets you 2 drinks and access to the Cleo’s Valentine’s Day Candy Bar. The price point is really great on this one coming in at $25 so if you’re interested, be sure to get your tickets ahead of time.
6. Let love *shine* by making your very own copper lamp
This is a weird one but also a great excuse to make something interesting for yourself this February. They say love is blind so lighten up your vision with your very own handcrafted creation that you’ll make at the Craftsman Ave Studio in Brooklyn. No experience is necessary to participate in this 45-minute workshop. It’s a great way to spend some time with friends while you make something that can take your Ikea filled apartment to the next level of chic. Experts will be there to help you along the way.
