Panicking about the imminent day of romance? Snap out of it! 

Get out next weekend to some of these cool events instead...

Smithfield Valentine's Market Fair

Nab yourself some cool new threads and grab some delicious grub at Generator Hostel's Valley's Day extravaganza

There'll be plenty of gifts and goods galore for sale from over forty traders, live music with very special guests, Valentine's film screenings, and lots of food and drink offerings. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Game Night Four: Valentine's Edition

Got a bit of a competitive streak? You can kick ass at this game night playing Zombie Dice, Cards Against Humanity, Jenga and a ton of other games. 

It's a booze-free event so offers the perfect chill activity for early Sunday evening.

Love Funky Seomra

Love is all you need? Ahh, but you need a bit of dancing too... 

This is another alcohol-free event on Valentine's eve at Filmbase. You'll be spoilt for choice with 2 floors of music, massages provided by renowned massage therapists, a juice and smoothie bar, an organic cafe, live musicians with stunning visuals, spacious and cosy chill out areas, interactive arts installations and a world class sound system. 

And, no filthy hangover the next day - unbelievable scenes!

All Fur No Knickers - Pink Swagger 

After an extended period of hibernation All Fur No Knickers is back with a bangggg! 

Forget the lovey-dovey mushy stuff, grab your mates and get down to some gloriously cheesy tracks of funk, hip-hop, RnB and stone cold power ballads at this shindig.

Fancy and frivolous dress is highly recommended so think pink, neon, faux fur, glitter and tack-tacular vibes. This sweaty pink little love affair will take place in a secret location with limited capacity so get buying your tickets, STAT!

Dirty Dancing Social: Love Edition

Cut loose, footloose. Kick off the Sunday shoes! Oops, wrong film... 

Still though, if you're a fan of classic '80s, romantic, dancing type films this was made for you. 

Choose from three different Latin dance classes at The Bohemian (formerly known as Boteco Brazil) between 7pm and 10pm before boogying into the wee hours with a late night party. You'll have the time of your life!
