You could spend Valentine’s Day longingly and/or angrily looking at all the cheesy couple photos popping up on your social media feeds, OR you could go celebrate your love of finger foods and booze at Open City.
Tonight’s special Anti-Valentine’s Day menu is “an ode to the food that you’d never eat on a date,” like spinach & garlic dip, chili cheese fries, and sweet and sour chicken wings. Feel free to eat with your hands, and don’t worry about your breath. You’re not here to impress anyone.
If the finger foods aren’t enough to remind you that Valentine’s Day is for suckers, add some booze to the mix. The Woodley Park restaurant is also serving $8 anti-Valentine’s Day drink specials, including the Lying Bastard with ginger beer, bourbon, and lime, and the Bitter Ex with gin, grapefruit, Campari, and Amaro.
Don’t forget dessert: sweet, gooey monkey bread rolled in cinnamon sugar and topped with a vanilla glaze. And since this isn’t a date, there’s no need to be cute and share.
Check out the full menu below.
