Love in the City: New York Valentine’s Celebrations

            Wondering what to do with those once glorious photos that show your romance at its peak? The staff at Mr. Purple have the solution for you. On Saturday, February 12th, Mr. Purple is hosting the ultimate anti-Valentine’s Day party. Along with the black balloons, black flowers, and even a black heart wreath behind the bar, guests can bring a picture of their ex-significant other to the bar and get a cocktail in exchange. That’s more than a fair trade as far as we’re concerned.
