Will you be my anti-valentine? These are alternate Valentine's Day events you need to know about

HOUSTON – Let’s face it – Valentine’s Day isn’t the best day ever for lots of people.

People who are single are reminded they’re single. People who have lost loved ones are reminded of better times. People who are in messy relationships are shown a news feed filled with happy couples with happy children living seemingly-perfect lives. It’s all enough to make you want to rebel against the holiday. 

Thankfully, there are more than a few ways in the Houston area to get out that angst on Valentine’s Day or the day after. Here are a few: 

Anti-Valentine’s Day party at Little Woodrow’s on Shepherd, 720 Shepherd Dr., Houston, Texas 77007 – Get a $16 steak and celebrate with other singles. Drink special.
