If you haven’t been shot with Cupid’s arrow yet or your Valentine is yet to be found because he or she is still hiding under a rock, fear not.
You have a whole list of things to celebrate on Feb. 14, also known to many as Singles Awareness Day.
It’s great to be single on Valentine's Day because you don’t have to please anyone or care about anyone’s opinion of what you want to do. Go see that horrible or cheesy movie that you’d never go to on a date at Cinemark Louis Joliet or, to save money, Cinemark Movies 10.
You can also really enjoy being with your friends. Get a group together and go to a restaurant in Plainfield (click through Patch's directory of local restaurants here), or sample the wine at Wine & Cheese by TCC, Bin 48 or HopScotch & Vine. If dining out isn’t your thing, get active and find out what the Crossfit craze is all about at CrossFit Plainfield.
Getting dressed up to go to a party is fun, but sometimes it’s even better when you can dress down for a party in your pajamas. Get takeout (perhaps pizza from Readers' Choice winner Beggars Pizza?), put on a mud mask, read magazines and watch your favorite movies.
Another reason to celebrate is that nobody yells at you about your credit card bill (except yourself). Go get a facial at Zen Salon & Spa and a cute new outfit at Have to Have or Me Tu Boutique.
You also don’t have to decorate your home to fit anyone else’s taste. Go buy yourself a new item at Maggie's Place or Lockport Street Gallery.
And the best thing of all—you don’t have to split a bottle of wine with anyone. Pick up a non-shareable bottle at Wine & Cheese by TCC or Binny's Beverage Depot.
