Night watch: Luv Sux

Boston's club scene, one party at a time

The deal: Celebrate the single life at this anti-Valentine’s Day break-up bash. Attendees enjoy the regular Howl atmosphere (dueling pianos, ability to request songs, dance floor) with a not-so-romantic twist, says general manager Corydon Himelberger. In addition to the daily piano show at 7 p.m., the night will also feature a series of special events. Games include a frozen T-shirt contest (less dirty than it sounds), where the first participant to untie the knots in a frozen T-shirt wins, and a frozen lemon contest, where teams of two must move a frozen lemon from one opening of a pant leg to the other, without using their hands. “It’s the best time you can have with your clothes on.’’

The DJ: Join the usual all-request live piano band for some popular break-up hits.


Who goes there: “Anyone from the ages of 21 to 81 is our usual demographic,’’ says Himelberger. “And while couples are welcome to join, this is really a night to let loose and be single.’’

Three songs you’ll hear: “Love Stinks,’’ J. Geils Band; “Ridin’ Solo,’’ Jason Derulo; “Single,’’ Natasha Bedingfield.

The drinks: “We are serving our X-boyfriend cocktail, made with X-rated Fusion Liqueur, vanilla vodka, and juices,’’ says Himelberger. “We’re also serving our Bad Romance bucket, made with Skyy vodka, watermelon and peach Schnapps, cranberry juice, and Sprite.’’

The tip: Those who arrive at the door with a mutilated picture of a loathed ex will be entered to win a cash prize for the most creatively defaced photo.
