How’re you making out with your Valentine’s plans? Not making out at all? Lick your single wounds and grab your best friends because we’ve got a bunch of Galentine’s Day events lined up just for you. Whether you hate being single or just love your girls, go make the best of it. Just promise not to text your ex.

EMO VALENTINE’S DAY

You’re single, so clearly, these aren’t your glory days. Do you know what were your glory days? The emo ones. Grab your gals, don the black eyeliner, and get sad with some likeminded folk. There’ll be music from your old iPod shuffle (think Paramore and Death Cab for Cutie), and most of the proceeds will benefit Supporting Our Youth. That’s worth a smile, almost.

When: Thursday, February 14
Where: Handlebar, 159 Augusta Ave
Time: 8 PM- 2 AM
Cost: $13, find tickets here

3 COURSE VALENTINE’S CHOCOLATE DINNER

So this one might have been meant for couples, but holding hands with your bestie and eating a stupid amount of chocolate is the perfect Galentine’s date, right? There’s a guided tasting appetizer, a savoury chocolate main, and a chocolate butter tart dessert served with bubbly. They’re focusing on the flavour profiles, we’re just stoked to be tasting a bunch of chocolate.

Where: Livelihood Cafe, 254 Augusta Ave
Time: 8 PM – 10 PM
Cost: $75, register here
