Single? 4 Great Spots to Celebrate V-Day With Your Girlfriends

Valentine's Day is upon is, and it seems like everywhere you look there's a list of the "Best Restaurants for Romance" and "Hot Gifts for Her on Valentine's Day." (We know because a few of those lists are ours.) And fair enough…if you're part of a couple. But what about us single gals? Are we to spend the "holiday" - in air quotes because, really, is Valentine's Day a legit holiday? - crying and alone with a box of Oreos, a full Netflix queue, and our cat? N.O. And if you had to pause before answering, shame on you.

So here's an alternative: Get your best gal pals together and go out. Sure, you'll probably have to suffer a few newbie couples looking longingly into each other's eyes, but celebrating your awesome self, single or not, is something you should do every day, including February 14th. Here, for all of the single and fabulous chicas in the Big Apple, four single-friendly hotspots to hit up on Valentine's Day.
