NOW THAT FOOTBALL'S OVER...

It's that time. Time for the women to reclaim their men after almost 6 months of non-stop football. And appropriately enough, the first weekend that comes up after football? Valentine's Day. Time to pay the piper fellas... And trust me, the ladies will be expecting you to do right by them after virtually ignoring them practically every weekend since Opening Weekend of football season.

Sucks to be you.

On the other hand, if you are a single guy or girl, you are obviously dreading this weekend as well.  While Valentine's Day falls on a Monday this year, no doubt most couples will be "celebrating" it over the course of the weekend.  Evidence of the upcoming holiday is all over the place.  From the flower shops to the aisles of Duane Reade, red hearts and fairy angels dangle everywhere, a manufactured reminder that you need to be celebrating you like/love for someone on February 14.  It's also a sobering reminder that if you are without that "special person" to celebrate said holiday with, this day has a way of making you feel like a loser, even if you convince yourself that you aren't.  Talk about brutal.

That being said, we at Third and Long, continue our yearly tradition of saying "F*** You" to Valentine's Day and all of the manufactured b-s that comes with it by hosting our annual "Anti-Valentine's Day Party"...

There are no expectations for the night. No judgments. Just a bunch of single folks getting together and having a good time without having to think about the dreaded "V-word".  We'll have a music playlist specifically tailored to acknowledge our distain for the holiday, cheap drinks and some surprises lined up for the night.

So if you are single and looking for something to do on Valentine's Night and you don't want to find yourself sitting in your apartment alone, watching reruns of "Love Actually", then join us for a night of "Good, Pouring Fun" and leave the stress of being single at home!

V-word? Vagina? Va jay jay? Being a happily single man I love Valentine's Day and the fact that all the other shmucks have to do shit for/with their girlfriends and (yikes!) spend money on them! Not me, no sir e. I might splurge for the "girlfriend experience" but even an hour of that can take a toll.

"Sucks to be you" as in the Swandad doesn't have this problem because he doesn't have a lady.

But guess what big fella, I'm sure your man is going to be expecting something!

Yep. So what time will I be dipping my wicket into your box of chocolates? Cheeky wanker.

Life is like a box of chocolates - then you get one with the white creamy filling that you're not quite sure what it is.
