Poster design by Megan Penmann

Groove into your most psychedelic hippie attire and get into a mellow mood – on Sunday, February 11 from 1-7pm, we’re going back to the 1960s at the Greenpointers Winter of Love Valentine’s Market. The Greenpoint Loft (67 West Street) will become our sky high Woodstock stuffed with more than 60 local vendors, FREE fun activities, live music, food & drink plus plenty of positive vybz. RSVP here!

Flip Cupid the bird and celebrate singledom at the skint’s Third Annual “It’s Friday, I’m (Not) in Love” Anti-Valentine’s Party on Friday, February 9th at littlefield (635 Sackett St).

Hug yourself and sway as the aptly-named DJ Gordon Gloom (Feeling Gloomy, YDH2S) spins songs of heartache and desire from the 80s to today. Purge your emotional baggage with our cleansing anti-love ritual. Use our photo booth to show the world (and your exes) how much better you’re doing on your own. Lubricate yourself with themed drink specials.

Dress in black. All black. Only black. Creativity will be rewarded. $7 in advance, $10 at the door. Buy tix [sponsored]
