Happy Valentine's Day. Happy Singles Awareness Day. Or just Happy Wednesday, if that's your take on this whole thing.
You can show someone you love them all 365 days of the year but February 14th is the one day we panic to make elaborate plans to prove our love. That's a lot of pressure. Don't sweat it. You know I got you!
Here are a few date ideas for lovers and the fierce single ladies who wanna treat themselves:
Banksy Exhibit Opening @ the Jacksonville Public Library
This one is for the art lovers or someone with eclectic Netflix taste. Jax is getting a piece from the infamous street artist, Banksy. The main library downtown is hosting the piece called Haight Street Rat. Banksy created this piece on the side of a San Francisco bed and breakfast in 2010. The documentary Saving Banksy showed how an art collector worked to preserve it. And now it's here!
The exhibit will run from February 14th to April 14th. This event is free and open to everyone. More details here.
Hearts and Crafts @ Brewer's Pizza
Brewer's Pizza in Orange Park is serving heart-shaped pizza and craft beers today. What else could you possibly need?
"For the Love of Beer" @ Wicked Barley
You can take chocolate in the traditional box way or in the form of beer. Or both, really. Wicked Barley is releasing some sweet brews like the Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout and Rose Hip Cider. Plus, there's pop culture trivia at 7:30! Go make me proud.
The outside deck is all lit up with string lights and backs up to Goodby's Creek. It's a perfect spot for date night or fun pics with your Galentines.

Anti-Valentine's Day Night @ River City Brewing Company
Round up your single friends who also think V-Day is lame, cheesy and a consumerist trap to have drinks and a good time on the downtown Southbank at River City Brewing Company. I heard there's all you can drink wine and duet karaoke. May the odds be ever in your liver's favor.
