In case you haven’t been paying attention, Valentine’s Day is coming up in just a few days. Perhaps you’re not currently seeing anyone, and so you just assume it pass by without any fanfare. That’s all well and good, but you might not know there’s another holiday (albeit a facetious one) you could be celebrating instead!
Singles Awareness Day – essentially the antithesis of Valentine’s Day – invites all the single ladies and gents to either commiserate in, or celebrate their “single” relationship status notation on Facebook. This year, instead of Valentine’s Day serving as a reminder to appreciate your significant other, let Singles Awareness Day serve as a reminder to meet someone!
Morgan Outdoors’ Singles Hike
The folks over at Morgan Outdoors certainly have the right idea. They’ve organized a “Singles Hike” on Sunday, February 14th, inviting those who are currently unattached to join in an easy hike along Parksville Rail Trail, followed by a gathering at Rolling River Café to warm up and get some grub. Sounds like a good way to meet someone, if you ask us. Give them a call to register at 845-439-5507 – hurry, they’re capping the group at 15 people (hey, doesn’t that leave an odd man or woman out?).
“Love Songs… and Not” Musical Cabaret
Alright, so Morgan Outdoors seems to have the outdoors covered. The Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop is providing some indoor entertainment over the weekend to cover that end, with the “Love Songs… and Not” musical cabaret, featuring some of Sullivan County’s finest voices crooning love songs… and not (hence the title). With all of those sultry, melodious tunes reverberating through Sullivan County Museum, there’s sure to be romance in the air; perhaps it’ll help form a few connections.
“Brooklyn” at the Calicoon Theater
Continuing the trend of movies being nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars that many people haven’t heard of, “Brooklyn” is a story of an Irish immigrant woman torn between two men – with the added twist that the two men live in separate continents (one in New York, and one in her homeland). If you’d rather forgo company on Valentine’s Day, but still would like to experience a little romance to celebrate the day, this is a good opportunity to do so vicariously through characters on screen.
