Matthew Reveles, The Venomous Pinks, Obscura, and Other Valentine's Weekend Events

​If you're single, Valentine's Day kinda sucks.

You'll likely spend this weekend sitting on your ass, alternating bouts of drinking with visits to online porn sites, while your friends and their respective S.O.'s dine, drink, and dance, all in the name of romance.

Then again, if you're in a relationship, Valentine's Day still kinda sucks.

It's practically mandatory to spend scads of money on snookums, leaving your bank account empty as a result.

It doesn't have to be that way, however, as you can utilize our list of 10 different low-cost events during Valentine's Weekend to avoid either fate.
