Mix and Singles
Last year, you got two dozen long-stem roses. Before that it was that set of adorable by boe stacking rings, the too-tasty box of Godiva Chocolates, and that amazing pair of Jeffrey Campbells.
This year, it’s still uncertain what you’ll have to buy yourself to get through another solo Valentine’s Day. Skip the sappy love songs, the couple-clogged pau hanas, and keep Heathers shelved for another year. We found a few reasons to grab your girlfriends for a night out tomorrow.
See London, See France
Sure, your panties are showing but you won’t be alone at Hifi’s lingerie-making class. The first public event in the Hawaii Fashion Incubator’s soon-to-be opened Coop in Ward Warehouse will walk you through creating your own custom fit boy-short underwear.
Tuesday, 5- 7 p.m. Ward Warehouse, 2nd floor, across from the conference rooms. $30. Bring your own materials or purchase a kit for $10. Click here to register or for more information.
Love On the Rocks
Work off that office Valentine’s Day candy (you know it’s coming) on a small scale with indoor rock climbing. Jump into Soultrex’s Tuesday night bouldering class, a shorter climb that doesn’t require a rope, to really get your heart pumping.
$4 a person. 5 – 6 p.m. at Soul Trex, Windward Mall. Call 808.247.8735 or click here.
CrossFit’s free class is also Tuesday at 7 p.m.
He’s so Vine
No candlelight, no violins, you’ll find just great sips in a group-friendly atmosphere at HASR Wine Co.’s weekly wine tasting. Chances are you fall for one of the bottles being served - J Rose Sparkling, Bramare Cabernet and Malbec, Allegrinin Enamore and Amavi Syrah.
Tastings are 5 – 7 p.m. at Hasr Wine Co., 31 N. Pauahi St. Call 808.535.9463.
Don’t Want No Scrubs
The last couple of dates rubbed you the wrong way so brush it all off at the Korean spa. You won’t find lemon-infused water and classical music in these no-nonsense establishments, but twenty dollars each will give you and your girlfriends unlimited access to the hot and cold baths, salt, steam, and dry saunas. If that's no sweat, strip down completely for a full-body scrub to remove dead skin and leave you, literally, a new woman.
Aloha Sauna and Spa, 1724 Kalauokalani Way. 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., 808.941.9494.
Can Buy Me Love
Find your next crushworthy subject on the racks of some of your favorite shops. At least six boutiques and local designers' Valentine's Day sales of up to 50 percent off continue until closing tonight.
