So, we discussed the day of love if you’re half of a loved up couple (congrats, tell us your secrets) and here we are today to discuss celebrating singledom.
Which is cool because nights out with your girl gang are always a good time, as is the tingly feeling of potentially finding someone to jump into a twosome with and also partying in general.
Here we go with seven fun times you can have on Valentine’s Day should you be keen on doing any of the above (from north to south).
Looking for love (or just a really fun night out)? Head to Topgolf this Valentine’s Day for a Single and Ready to Mingle Party! Entry is $30 per person and includes Topgolf game play from 7pm until 9pm, a glass of bubbles or beer on arrival, platters of nibbles, DJ entertainment AND a Topgolf Lifetime Membership. What a time.
