5 things to do on V-Day in Dallas if you’re not a sap

Think cupid is stupid? This list is for you.

Whether you’re in a relationship or flying solo, you might already be veering into gag-me territory — and not in the Fifty Shades way — as you approach Feb. 14.

Valentine’s Day can be stupid, but it doesn’t have to be. Check out a few lighthearted ways to enjoy the holiday:

Feeling vengeful: Public School 214 is a brand-new restaurant in West Village serving a special “eat your heart out” menu. The $35, three-course dinner could be just right if you’re feeling mad at your ex — but you aren’t required to come with a vindictive streak. The main courses of pan-seared salmon, bangers and mash or a lamb burger could taste good at any emotional state. 3700 McKinney Ave., Dallas. psontap.com.

Just there for the sweets: Del Frisco’s Grille is making a delicious-looking red velvet waffle ice cream sandwich this V-Day. The $10 dish would be great to share, but I bet you can manage to eat it on your own, too. No judgment. Three locations: 1200 E. Southlake Blvd., Southlake; 154 E. 3rd St., Fort Worth; 3232 McKinney Ave., Dallas. delfriscosgrille.com.

If diving into a bowl of adult punch on Valentine’s Day will do you right, head to Victor Tangos.

Proud to be single: “F@#K Valentine’s Day,” saysVictor Tangos. (Their words, not mine.) The restaurant isn’t hosting “any romantic meals” on V-Day, according to its publicist; it’ll be celebrating singles with a “Screw Valentine’s Day” punch and shot specials. Even if you arrive single, you may leave seeing double. Starting at 5 p.m. Feb. 15. 3001 N. Henderson Ave., Dallas. victortangos.com.

Need a laugh: Come with friends, come with a new love interest, come alone: You’ll get chocolates and a rose no matter who you are. Lovely Confessions stars Lovely Uranus, “Dallas’ most famous third-rate drag queen,” while she teaches the audience the art of being a queen. Skills like how to jog in 8-inch heels could come in handy later. (Rated R for “adult language, situations, subject matter and tasteless dancing.”) Now through Feb. 22, select dates, at Stone Cottage Theatre, 15650 Addison Road, Addison. mbsproductions.net

Don’t want fussy food: Norma’s Cafe invites you to bring your own wine while you enjoy a special V-Day menu. It’s designed for two, but you’re a rule breaker, right? The meal starts with fried mozzarella sticks or fried mushrooms and finishes with red velvet cake. It’s a no-fuss night at this casual cafe, made better with fried food and wine. Or maybe you brought beer. You rebel. Feb. 13 and 14, $39.99. Three locations: 17721 N. Dallas Parkway., Dallas; 1123 W. Davis St., Dallas; 8300 Gaylord Parkway, Frisco. normascafe.com (Courtesy of DallasNews.com)
