It’s that time of year again. That time when couples are loved-up and going out on dates and giving roses and chocolates. If you don’t have a sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, then all that might make you want to curl up in a ball and cry your single little heart out. But never fear, Charleston has great activities for people who aren’t coupled up. Below you’ll find some places to spend Valentine’s Day in Charleston if you’re single.
Every Wednesday night, Mellow Mushroom on King Street hosts Drag Queen Bingo, and this Valentine’s Day in Charleston is no exception. You don’t need a date to join Crystal Guysir as she calls out the numbers. What better way to forget your blues than playing bingo, eating pizza, and winning prizes?
Bay Street Biergarten
On February 16th head to Bay Street Biergarten for their Bitterness Bash. It’s one great way to spend Valentine’s Day in Charleston if you’re single.
