Unless you've been under a rock, you definitely know that Valentine's Day is coming up this weekend, and it is not going to care if you're single or you have that special someone in your life. So you can either be bitter Betty or Bob about it, or you can get out and have yourself some drinks and a good time at any one of these bars around town.
For starters we have Coyote Ugly (409 E. Commerce), with their 10th annual Valentine Bitter Bash. Prizes can be given funniest pick-up line, craziest break up story and most embarrassing couple moment. You can either take a date and laugh all night or go alone and try to meet your Valentine.
Next we have the Love Sux party over at Howl At The Moon (111 W. Crockett) They've got you covered if you're single.
