VALENTINE’S PARTIES

CHEMISTRY: IGNITE A LOVE REACTION @ 7 BAR & GRILL

Cupid’s mad mistresses Danielle and Sir Sabrina have studied the periodic table of love and found that chocolate-covered strawberries, boozy beverages and hundreds of lovely lezzies have exactly the right pH for a truly fantastic Valentine’s Day Eve. On Feb. 13 Try Love Potion Number 9 or Chocolate Berry Martinis while you drop it to DJ Stacy’s sick beats. If you believe every holiday should involve winged go-go girls and kissing booths – and we do – this is where to be. Bill Nye would be proud.

Remember to fluff up your funbags first and enter the best cleavage contest!

You won’t find go-go mermaids anywhere else! If you’re not a swimmer, head upstairs to the dance floor where DJ Susan Levine churns out her fierce signature beats. One lucky girl will win a romantic night’s stay at Grace Hotel and dinner at Bamboo 52 for her and a date, and another will win brunch for 4 at Philip Marie – every gay’s most important meal of the day, especially when there are scandalous V-Day escapades to rehash..
