Let's face it. Valentine's Day is for couples. Married, dating, or otherwise, most events and restaurants are focused on catering to candlelit dinners for two.
Louisville.com has teamed up with our friends at SkyBar at Saints in St. Matthews for a different kind of party. It's not a singles night - its a celebration of SINGLEHOOD! There are great benefits to cruising through life on your own, even it it's only temporary. So we're gathering on February 14th from 7-10pm for a night of food, mingling, cocktails, and a few games.
We'll have a rockin' game of "Battle Of The Sexes". The guy winner walks away with a $100 gift certificate to the Neutral Zone. The gal winner walks away with a $100 gift certificate from The Summit. The buffet will be stocked with delicious food from Saints' kitchen and we'll feature a $4.00 Cosmos and Manhattans from 7-10pm.
You could spend the evening watching bad movies on the couch or you could come out and have some fun with a bunch of other people who have something in common with you.
