1-for-1 deals for Valentine’s Day 2017
Adapted from source: @piggishness
When you are #foreveralone, you probably dread Valentine’s Day more than any other work day of the year. But don’t force yourself on Tinder just to find a random stranger to spend that day with – it’s not worth it…but leeching on V-Day promotions is!
Instead of moping at home about being single, jio your bestie out for an adventure or a meal and take advantage of these 1-for-1 deals:
1. Bicycle rental from AIRE MTB at Chestnut Nature Park (U.P. from $15/hr)
You can expect East Coast Park to be dotted with lovey-dovey couples on tandem bikes on V-Day. But instead of subjecting yourself to that stark reminder of how you’re still single, rent bikes from AIRE MTB – and go on an exhilarating ride down the steep, bumpy dirt paths at Chestnut Nature Park. You don’t need a romance to take your breath away.
