Cranky Cupid Roams the Strip – Free Pizza and Activities at Each Location


(CHICAGO, IL) – Singles Awareness Day, otherwise known as Valentine’s Day, will be once again held on Thursday, February 14.  It is probably the one day single people despise most. This year, singles have an obvious location to commiserate, have a little fun, and be Dateless on Division at six of Chicago’s favorite singles destinations:  Mother’s Too, The Original Mother’s, The Hangge-Uppe, Bootleggers, She-nannigans House of Beers, and The Lodge Tavern.


To participate, stop by any of these of these six locations and ask the bartender or server for a lanyard and commence the self-imposed pub crawl, starting and stopping anywhere, on Thursday, February 14, anytime from 9pm to 2amEach locale will have a select theme, activity, and Red Stag Jim Beam whiskey cocktail, offered all day, for only $5, plus complimentary pizza from 9pm onward, while supplies last, as that’s a very romantic touch.


Collect a stamp at each bar by completing the designated activities.  When the lanyard has been stamped at each location, show the bartender or server to receive a “Sexy Stag Bag”, complete with a condom, naughty lollipop, flavored lube, a blindfold and more, plus a ticket to the “Singles Mingle” at Mahoney’s the next day.
