Love is in the air this weekend, and whether you’re smitten and swooning, single and salty, or independent and owning it, you can find somewhere to celebrate Cupid’s big day. We’ve rounded up your best bets a romantic dinner, singles-friendly happenings, festive events that are out-of-the-box(-of-chocolates), and go-to Galentine’s gatherings. If you’d rather ignore the holiday altogether, you could run away to the circus, continue pigging out for Lunar New Year, take a little trip to Paris sans passport, or observe Presidents Day. Here’s everything you need to do in DC this weekend.
Embrace Singlehood at Anti-Valentine’s Events
Thursday, February 14
Single and ready to mingle? Haunted by exes (and ohs)? No matter your relationships status, make most of Valentine’s weekend. Head to the rooftop at Eaton DC for Wild Days’ Singles Weekend (Thursday & Friday) featuring fresh DJ beats & themed cocktails, meet a Marine at The Ugly Mug’s charity auction benefiting HillVets, dance the night away at the Heartbreaker’s Ball supporting local art and artists at the Line Hotel, write your ex’s name in a litter box at Crumbs & Whiskers and then watch cats shit on them at the end of the month, or shred a photo of your no-longer-beloved at The SALLY.
Cost: Prices vary.
