Even if Valentine's Day really isn't your thing, there's no reason to sit inside and sulk on Feb. 14. Use this day as an excuse to get a bunch of really fun people together and have a single-ladies soiree. Watch a couple of Judd Apatow comedies, play board games or cards, and munch on the richest, messiest, most unromantic foods you can think of, because, well, who cares if you enter a food coma later? Here are a few of our recommendations.
Who cares if you get a little too buzzed? It'll make the night all the more fun. We recommend a whiskey-based drink like an old fashioned. 
We welcome all things garlicky at an anti-Valentine's Day party. Eat as much garlic bread  as you want, and don't even think twice about it.
