Seven Anti-Valentine's Day Parties in Metro Phoenix

Infidelity. Impossible social skills. Offensive body odor. There are any number of reasons why one may find themselves single on Valentine's Day. But for whatever reason And if you happen to be unattached, this time of year is likely to be quite maddening thanks to the overwhelming amount of heart-shaped reminders of your loneliness decorating everything from your co-workers cubicle to the corner Walgreens.

Bachelors, spinsters, or even those with an "It's Complicated" status needn't lurk about at home this weekend humming "All By Myself" and hiding out from all the crimson-colored pomp and circumstance, as several bars, clubs and other nightlife-oriented establishments around the Metro Phoenix area are throwing anti- Valentine's Day affairs for the lovelorn and heartbroken from Thursday, February 14, until Sunday, February 17. Consider attending one in order to drown your sorrows in drinking or dancing instead of throwing a pity party for one.
