Instead of wallowing in misery at home, here are 10 events you can go to on Valentine’s Day to get away from hordes of couples and maybe even find a partner-in-crime of your own.

Your cover fee includes a Japanese dinner of donburi, dessert, drinks, and a mask to temporarily veil your identity.
Cover fee: $50
