Your anti-Valentine’s Day roundup in NJ
If you're just not feeling the love this year, all the Valentine hoopla could have you extra nauseated by now. Take comfort in crowds around New Jersey, with some anti-Valentine events this weekend. Some of them are frankly named and thankfully, censored. I've also tracked down a few events where you can vent your Valentine's Day frustration.
The Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, Hoboken
There will be beer, food, flowers and chocolate, plus live music. There's a brunch window from noon until 3:30 p.m., then dinner will be served all night.
Stupid Cupid party, Hoboken
New Jersey Young Professionals have put together a lighthearted event for Saturday night, happening at Room 84. This is an event for V-Day haters and those who are more neutral on the whole thing.
Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, Asbury Park
There's "F*@k Valentine's Friday" plus "Singles Saturday" at the popular beer hall. Both events promise live music.
Stosh’s craft beer bar, Fair Lawn
The Bergen County bar is offering an "(anti) Valentine's day" evening on Friday (the 12th) with aptly named Love Stout and live music.
Dubliner Pub & Grill, Galloway
This Atlantic County bar is another place to gather on Saturday night to ignore the candy, flowers and "cupid crowd."
There's still time plenty of time to pull off this DIY, "anti-Conversation Heart" shirt.

Love or hate V-Day, this HennelPaperCo card on Etsy speaks truth. You could always order it up and stash it away for next year. The shop also has "rosier" selections, in case your outlook changes: https://www.etsy.com/listing/262495559/funny-anti-valentines-day-card-funny?ref=shop_home_feat_4
