As a bitter old person, I don’t really care what you couple-y people wanna do for Valentine’s Day.
However, there’s still a tiny, kind, fresh faced, ray of sunshine still residing in the basement of my dark, dark, DARK cellar of a soul so I’ll give you some options, if you’re stuck and don’t have a clue…but, really. How hard is it?
Flowers….candy….some good food….booze….a new lube….
OR, go do some of these things…that is, if this gawdamned shit-tastic effing SNOW HELL EVER STOPS!!!
Kill all the snow.
Anyway…stuff to do for LURVE!!!! (But, seriously, due to our inclement weather, please check venue/event producer websites/social media to make sure events aren’t cxled due to this freaking weather, before leaving the house!)

White = Monogamous — you’re in a committed relationship and are just looking to minglleeeahh with your partner
Black = Single — need I say more?
Pink or blue = Womx(e)n ally — in the words of Destiny’s Child: “ladiez, leave your (cis) straight men at home”, but if you have a badass ally you want to party with, they’re welcome to join. If there’s confusion here, just message me (via the FB invite link).
