9 Feb - Valentune Out
Who says Valentine’s Day has to be spent with a significant other? V-day has become V overrated — why not change it up this year, and spread the love in a different way:
What’s the only thing better than buying a gift for someone you love? Saving that money and treating yourself to a pampering & happy hour! Ladies, grab your girls and head over to Freehand Chicago for our Galentine’s Day Happy Hour. The Gigi Jiggles will be hooking it up with the free nail art while the Broken Shaker serves up Valentine’s Day themed cocktails.
Forget about the No Pants Subway ride. In Chicago, we do things right. Take an (almost) naked run through Wrigleyville at our Cupid’s Undies Run! Not only is this a once-in-a-lifetime Chi-town exclusive experience, it also benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Prizes include shirts, undies and engraved flasks. Head to the after party at John Barleycorn for some post-run drinks!
Don’t have a Valentine’s date? You’re not the only one. Meet us in the Broken Shaker for Stupid Cupid’s Valentine’s Day Party with Validation. We’ll be serving up drinks, board games, heartwarming love notes for all the single peeps courtesy of Validation, reassuring unisex fragrances for the overworked & under appreciated and plenty of good vibes of course.
Let’s be real, even though there are a bunch of great love songs, there’s also loads of melancholy ones that are just as great — and sometimes, it just feels good to belt out Otis Redding’s “These Arms Of Mine,” especially at karaoke. Meet us in The Den for Open Mic Night and let your inner rock star shine. Sing or play anything you like — happy, sad, rap or rock! Music soothes the soul.
If Valentine’s Day has you feeling too much of some kind of way, a stress-relieving afternoon will definitely do you good — try boxing to unleash those pent-up emotions. Spend a couple hours punching heavy bags & pads, or at a bootcamp class and we promise you won’t have the energy to think about that guy or girl that’s been on your mind. Check out the classes at Barry’s, just a few blocks away from Freehand!
