Leave the expensive brunches and Airbnb staycations to the lovebirds! Free yourself from the chains of Valentine’s Day this year and celebrate those who fly solo. With tunes from DJ Gordon Gloom, $5-8 drink specials, and cheap admission, you’ll spend way less than you would on flowers, chocolates, and other stuff that those “happy” people in relationships do.
