“If at first you don’t succeed/Dust yourself off, and try again,” or so the great Aaliyah once sang. Adventure(s) & Nerve Dating is giving you a chance to try again at love (or at least find a quickie) with the Broken-Hearted Ball: Screw Love/Get Screwed, an all-night anti-Valentine’s Day Party. The evening is broken up into two parts. The first half consists of dancing the pain away with songs about heartbreak (“You’re So Vain,” “You Oughta Know,” etc.). Then, after you’ve let go of the bad vibes, it’s time to get back in the saddle and find Mr. or Ms. Right Now with songs like “Let’s Get It On” and “I Want Your Sex” to get you in the mood. Formal attire is requested—probably to make it more interesting when you have to take it all off.
