Spend your V Day with a certain redhead.
| Joy Summers
black sunday

There are many ways to get through the shameless consumerism and debauchery that is Valentine’s Day. You can throw the entire 50 Shades of Grey trilogy in the fireplace, or alternatively, play the movie on heavy rotation. You can listen to Marvin Gaye while plowing your way through a Dairy Free Chunky Monkey. But why settle for such predictable tomfooleries when you can just gather up some friends and hit a local brewery or four? Whether you are flying solo or partnered up, these folks have your back.
