Valentine’s Week – Recap and Roundup

Lizzie Rosenman reviews and previews some of the events from this year’s Valentine’s festivities in St Andrews.

Have no Valentine’s Day plans? Even if you do have something planned for February 14th, why not make the celebration of Valentines day a few days longer! Here is a recap and preview of some of the events happening around Valentine’s Day.

 

Events Recap

 

Thursday 9 February: Bro//ken Hearts Club – The Vic

 

Not feeling too positive about Valentines Day? This event at The Vic was a perfect distraction for everyone from singletons to loved-up couples. The dress code for the evening was your best red, pink, or white outfits, and colour-coded glow-stick wristbands were available upon entry. A pink wristband meant the wearer was single, blue meant the wearer was taken, and orange meant…. it’s complicated. Guaranteed by the end of the night you would forget about your pink wristband.

Friday 10 February: Valentines at the Vic – The Vic

One of the most anticipated Valentines-themed events of the week was organized by the first years of Lumsden Club. Rumour had it you might be given a ribbon at the door signifying your relationship status… The event was vaguely described as “wild” and “messy,” so attendees flocked to The Vic to find out what that meant. Lumsden not only hosted Valentines at the Vic, but they are delivering roses on February 14th as part of their annual rose sale. If you want to send a rose to a loved one, a potential loved one, or just a friend or your galentine, you can buy them on FIXR (search up Lumsden’s Annual Rose Sale), and a Lumsden member will personally deliver them on Valentine’s Day. The tickets for the Vic were priced at a very affordable £10 and a rose is £2.50, with all proceeds from the Valentines club night and the rose sale going to Lumsden’s longstanding charity partner, Fife Women’s Aid. Fife Women’s Aid is an organization which seeks to empower women and children on the road to recovery from domestic abuse.

Saturday 11 February: FS Revival – Lower College Lawn

 

Maybe it’s not centered around Valentines Day, but the annual FS show was undoubtedly the event of the weekend. The oldest and largest fashion show in Scotland, FS celebrated its 31st anniversary with a night to remember. The theme for FS 2023 this year was Revival, with models dressed in unique pieces representative of past decades, and the show set to a musical background of everything from the Beatles, to Elvis and Gloria Gaynor. Standard tickets were a whopping £75, but the proceeds go to their charity the Genetic Alliance UK, a non-profit organisation that supports people with genetic, rare, and undiagnosed conditions in the UK. If £75 was out of your budget, you could buy a separate afterparty ticket for a lesser amount of £30. The notorious St Andrews Charity Fashion Show only happens once a year, so whether you buy a ticket for the show, or just attend the after party, you don’t want to miss it.

Saturday 11 February: Galentines Ball – Lupos

 

If you couldn’t make it down to Lower College Lawn for FS, but still wanted to go out on Saturday night, Lupo’s was the place to be for EmpowHER’s second annual Galentines Ball. Happening two days before the ‘official’ Galentine’s Day, you didn’t have to have an excuse for extending your celebrations by going out with your gal-pals for a fun night. EmpowHER curated a selection of themed drinks for the holiday (one free drink included with the price of admission), food, and a DJ playing everyone’s favourite girls-night-out hits including Taylor Swift and ABBA. What more could you want?

Events Roundup

 

Sunday 12 February: Super Bowl LVII (10 PM)

 

Do you watch American Football? Maybe not, but do you know an American? Definitely! The biggest American sporting event of the year is being played this weekend on Superbowl Sunday. It is the only event on this list that doesn’t have to cost any money. The game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs is a must watch – another once a year experience. Even if you don’t know (or like) the sport, stick around for the famously entertaining ads during commercial breaks and the iconic halftime show being performed by none other than Rihanna. You can watch the game at Molly’s, The Rule, The Vic, or the comfort of your own bed. Go for the experience, the wings, the beer, and the angry fans yelling at the TV.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.

  6. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  7. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  8. I don?t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  9. Thanks for your posting. One other thing is when you are advertising your property yourself, one of the issues you need to be conscious of upfront is when to deal with property inspection accounts. As a FSBO owner, the key about successfully shifting your property and saving money on real estate agent revenue is awareness. The more you already know, the smoother your home sales effort will likely be. One area that this is particularly critical is inspection reports.

  10. After exploring a few of the blog posts on your web page, I seriously like your way of writing a blog. I bookmarked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my web site as well and tell me how you feel.

  11. Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me just as much as this one.

  12. I?ve learn a few excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you put to create any such wonderful informative website.

  13. One thing I’d really like to say is that often car insurance canceling is a feared experience and if you are doing the suitable things being a driver you may not get one. Some people do receive the notice that they have been officially dumped by their particular insurance company and many have to fight to get supplemental insurance after a cancellation. Affordable auto insurance rates usually are hard to get from cancellation. Having the main reasons concerning the auto insurance canceling can help individuals prevent completely losing in one of the most vital privileges offered. Thanks for the concepts shared by means of your blog.
