Single, in a relationship, married, it’s complicated. Whatever your status, Valentine’s Day is for suckers. Avoid falling for the trappings of a manufactured holiday and head to the skint’s fourth annual “It’s Friday, I’m (Not) in Love” Anti-Valentine’s Party on Friday, February 8th at littlefield instead.

Dance to songs of heartbreak and liberation, strike a pose at our dark photo booth, get questionable advice from our unqualified expert, and partake of themed-drink specials at the bar.

What to wear? Leave your pinks and reds at home: this party’s dress code is strictly black. All black. Only black. Creativity will be rewarded.

With tickets priced less than a bunch of flowers, this event tends to sell out, so get your tickets now.
