Happy Valentine's Day! Here's our suggestions to celebrate or avoid the holiday

Valentine's Day is upon us, and some local establishments are having events for you. Here's some of them, and a couple of other ideas or recommendations for you, both if you have and if you don't have a main squeeze.

The Pinch at 3548 14th Street NW is hosting Burlesque and Belly Laughs, a burlesque show with no cover. Their Facebook invite says "And to top it off, we're giving everything away for free* - FREE SHOWS! FREE IMPROV! FREE BOOBIES! Food never tasted better, drinks were never wetter. Your entire body is alive with passions and cravings that need to be quelled. Come for a night of great food, great drinks, and great entertainment." Might be a fun, non-traditional date.

The Blue Banana at 3632 Georgia Ave NW is hosting "BlackLightLoveBombs," a V-Day party with $4 drinks and beers and a video DJ "spinning sexy music all night long."

Over at The Getaway at 1400 Meridian Pl NW they're holding District Karaoke, which might be a good option for "Love Stinks" or "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" (or some Air Supply -- "You're Every Woman in the World to Me.")

Eatonville at 2121 14th St NW and Chez Billy at 3815 Georgia Ave NW are also good options for a nice date meal.

Some other nice date options I'd suggest would be Room 11 for drinks and dinner (though I bet it'll be crowded) and Mt. Pleasant's Last Exit for drinks. Last Exit especially is dark and intimate, might be a nice place for canoodling over a cocktail.

And if you don't care about this dumb holiday, Wonderland, the Looking Glass Lounge and the Red Derby are probably good options for just a regular night to complain or ignore it altogether and have a few drinks. The Derby especially is a good bah-humbug type place, and Wonderland has chicken and waffles today. Pretty awesome.

Those are my ideas, how about yours?
