Tonight! The Second Annual It’s Friday, I’m (Not) In Love Anti-Valentine’s Party!

The last thing you need to worry about in 2017 is Valentine’s Day, a made-up holiday about a four-letter word. Avoid all the mushy stuff and dance your way into oblivion at littlefield on tonight (Friday, February 10), and celebrate singledom.

DJ Gordon Gloom (Feeling Gloomy, YDH2S) will be crowding the floor with songs of heartache and desire from the 80s to today, $6-8 drink specials will keep you (in)appropriately lubricated, a cleansing anti-love ritual will provide closure and catharsis, and our photo booth will prove to your ex(es) that you’re totally doing just fine on your own really just fine thank you very much.

Wear black. All black. Need a reason? Every living thing on earth dies alone. Creativity will be rewarded.

The rest is up to you. Rebel. Renew. Rebound.
