We're not saying you're a bitch if you have a man-friend for Valentine's Day, but, we kind of hate you (okay, not really). Some of us here are single, and while V-Day makes some of us wanna curl up Bridget Jones' style, we've made it our mission this year to grab the holiday by the chocolate hearts and have some fun. So, if you're in the market to get your drink on (or just get yourself off) here's our guide on how to make Cupid wish he could have as much fun as you!
We like calories as much as the next girl, but it sure can be lonesome eating alone. Luckily, there are some restaurants where you won't be surrounded by smooching couples.
SoHo House is hosting two tables of singles for Valentine's Day brunch--one gay and one straight. Dine family-style while a DJ pumps up some good tunes, sip unlimited cocktails, and get your vodka goggles on--hey, maybe you'll meet that special someone.
Soho House Restaurant, 29 9th Ave.
Sunday, February 14, 1:00 p.m.
