In most cases it’s a day for couples, cards, chocolates, and a naked baby shooting arrows, but not for Mellow Mushroom. For the ninth year in a row, the downtown restaurant/bar is throwing its F-Cupid Valentine’s Day Party. Rather than focus on the cutesy, love-filled side of the holiday, the goal of the night is to give singles a place to party without feeling like a complete loser for being alone.
For your entertainment pleasure, DJs JeffET, CMNDer, and MACHETE of Electric Friends will be in house spinning on the turntables. Don’t worry about breaking the bank with all those drinks you’ll be buying, because the girls from Captain Morgan, Rumple Minze, and Nuvo Vodka will be passing out some free samples, and there will be Oskar Blues Brewery and Rogue Brewery beer specials during the party.
Don’t forget to bring that one picture of your ex you haven’t burned to win some prizes in the “Shoot the Ex Rifle Range.” Oh, and if you’re not single, you’re still allowed to come. Just don’t flaunt it, OK? —Caitlyn Chimento
