West Coast Singles

posted in Events, Fun Events, Useful Info |

Finally – For my West coast readers here is a list of options for the single folk out in LA and San Fran on this V-day.

Los Angeles

For those singles out there looking for love this Valentines Day head on out to the Foundry on Melrose. The Foundry on Melrose is doing a favor for those sans date on Valentine’s Day by turning their lounge into singles only pickup zone. While couples dine in the restaurant, those flying solo can enjoy cocktails, swing jazz and special menu items. Bolder singles can send “let’s be friends” cocktails to unsuspecting strangers for half-price. If you pick someone up they might even let you into the dining room.  Could be fun… No?  The live music starts at 9 PM.

For the Anti-Valentines crowd, you can head on over to Baja Sharkeez (3801 Highland Ave. Manhattan Beach).  Sharkeez is promoting the night’s events like this: “Cupid is a Drunk With a Bad Aim,” – sounds like a lot of mismatched drunken hookups to me – which pretty much sums up their unsentimal sentiment towards V-Day. The bar is encouraging the despondent to decorate the dartboard with pictures of their exes (Uncensored of course), while the bartenders screw up your aim with $3 broken heart shots. The sexiest dressed partygoer will win $200, and possibly a date.

San Francisco

Just looking for a good romp this Valentines Day?  Well check out Delirium (3139 16th St.).  Cheap drinks, and the best part, It’s too dark, and people are too drunk, to notice you came alone, or pay attention to who you leave with.

Now I definitely saved the best for last because this sounds AWESOME… So awesome I may book a last minute flight out to San Francisco tonight!  Check this out:

Event Name: Pillow Fight 2009
Location: Justin Herman Plaza (1 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94105)
When: Sat Feb 14 (5:45pm)


1) Tell everyone you know about Pillow Fight!

2) Tell EVERYONE YOU KNOW about Pillow Fight!!!

3) Nothing in your pillow but pillow.

4) Don’t hit anyone without a pillow.

5) Don’t hit anyone operating a camera.

Feathers will fly at this fun, flash-mob type event. Leave it to a place like San Francisco to host the most visible incarnation of the Pillow Fight’s flash-mob-esque gathering, and subsequent public pillow fight. I would say that a safe thousand people were milling around Justin Herman Plaza at Embarcadero and Market Streets in Downtown San Francisco.
