Wednesday 13 

Love at First Slice

For those looking to step out of their comfort zone this V-Day eve, give it your all at Barbara’s speed dating and pizza night. Grab a slice, have a chat, but more importantly, win some awesome prizes. If it’s a total bust, at least there will be pizza.

When: 7pm10pm
Where: Barbara

Anti Valentine’s Day

If knocking back a few cocktails with mates is more your V-Day vibe, these three locales are perfect for you. The Royal George, Ric’s Café Bar and The Marquee Bar will all be opening their doors to those opposed to the loved up nature of February 14th. Entry is free at each venue and there will be live music, DJs and giveaways all night long.

When: 5pm – late, Thursday 14 February
Where: RG’s, Rics, the Marquee

This Aussie treasure will be sharing his views on all the little joys of life in his trademark deadpan style, making this the perfect spot to have a good laugh on Valentine's, be it with a date or with your mates.

FIVE + S Club 3 + Big Brovaz + G.R.L.

The Eatons Hill Hotel will be fronting an impressive lineup of naughties icons including the remaining members of S club, the original inspiration for 5 Rings, Big Brovaz and Five. If that’s not ringing any bells just rewatch the film clip to Keep On Movin’ and you will be flooded with flashbacks of frosted tips and eyebrow piercings.
