Go to Ristorante iRicchi on Valentine's Day for refreshing cocktails from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. that remind you it's OK to be single.

If you’re single, you might be dreading Valentine’s Day. But you shouldn’t be – you can have plenty of fun without a significant other.

If you’re single this Valentine’s Day, head over to Town Tavern for its annual “Cupid is Stupid” party. The “It’s Not You, It’s Me” open bar means endless drinks between 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you can only make it after 10, however, Town Tavern is offering $5 Bacardi shooters and $3 domestic beers until midnight.

Feeling especially anti-Valentine’s this year? Meet up with other like-minded singles in a couples-free zone at iRicchi’s Anti-Valentine’s Day party. Ristorante iRicchi is a surprising destination for the love-weary, considering it’s a romantic Italian venue the other 364 days of the year.

Gather your other single friends to take over iRicchi from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Celebrate the day away with refreshingly independent cocktails like “Love on the Rocks,” “Stag and Stunning” and “Free to Be Me” for $8 a drink.

If wine or beer is more your thing, grab a glass for $6 or a beer for $3. Complimentary appetizers are included.
