It’s either one of the most anticipated or dreaded days of the year for singles. I’m talking about Valentine’s Day. February 14th is right around the corner and it’s time to start making some plans. Whether you are on a date or hanging out with friends, Atlanta has a lot of choices for making Valentine’s Day 2013 a night to remember.

45 13th St. N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30309
(404) 873-6189
www.cosmolava.comLocated in Midtown, CosmoLava will be a happening place on Valentine’s Day. CosmoLava has a February 14th tradition where every girl that comes in the door gets a lock and every guy gets a key. Many people venture out to CosmoLava during the year, but Valentine’s Day is really something special. It has a great turnout every year and you shouldn’t miss it. This is a great place to meet somebody new and possibly make a “love connection.”

Ru San’s
1529 Piedmont Road
Atlanta, GA 30324
(404) 875-7042
www.rusansmidtown.comRu San’s has specials every day and night of the week on some divine sushi. This is a great way to have some fun on Valentine’s Day. Whether with a couple friends or a large group, Ru San’s will take care of you. Last year it offered a $29.95 Valentine’s special that included crab legs, sushi rolls and sashimi. If you love sushi and having fun, Ru San’s should be your choice. Also, with saki bombs to keep you hydrated, it will make for a vivacious evening.
