Not everyone looks forward to Valentine’s Day. While many see February 14 as a day of love, many others see it as a painful reminder of a failed relationship.
Did he break your heart? Did she dump you for someone better looking? Do you wish you could put your ex through a shredder? Well, you can … sort of.
This Valentine’s Day, Red Door Tavern on Roswell Road invites you to bring a photo, letter or other shreddable memento (like his favorite concert T-shirt) and “Shred Your Ex” at the bar. In exchange, you’ll get a free well cocktail to wash down any lingering bitterness. You can also get $3 Truly in cans or draft.
Women, be sure to grab your best gal pals and celebrate Galentine’s Day the night before. Head over to Avalon and enjoy a list of activities meant to celebrate female friendship.
For those of you who are very happy with your significant other and want to share an evening of love, we have no problem with that. In fact, we’ve put together a list of florists so you can order flowers.
An even better idea is to stay home. Pick up some Chick-fil-A nuggets (or cookies — no one is judging you) in a heart-shaped tin and watch a romantic comedy on Netflix — with or without someone else.
