What: David Greene and I invite you our annual Love Stinks party: The Anti valentine event. Cupid is stupid, shooting people in the a$$ with arrows is illegal in most states, do it with smooth conversation and drinks we say.

Light back ground music will be played by own DJ Freddy Retro. You will hear house, techno, top 40 and yes anti-love songs! No slow jams tonight my brother. Later on in the night we will crank up the music a bit. Come dance, lounge, mingle, drink, eat, meet that special someone, make new friends, trade in your old ones, whatever....
