Been looking for the perfect time to break up with your (in)significant other? We know, we know…she’s a bit of a freak (and not in the good way) and he plays poker with “the boys” way too much. Let’s help you get past this relationship so you can find your way onto greener pastures, calmer seas, and better matches on eHarmony or JDate. Yes, we’re giving you that extra nudge by providing you with a list of places that are not only perfect for that break up talk, but also have so many hotties and studs that when you’ve ditched that good for nothing you can immediately get your flirt on with someone else. And the food and adult beverages are good too, so you can eat/drink away the guilt. Ooooh, we’re so scandalous!
Tell us your break up stories and drama by commenting below.
Bar Q, Stamford: yeehaw! Check out the hot new urban cowboy scene here. Get on mechanical bull (check for availability to be sure), get thrown off, then become delirious. Look at date and say: What? Who are you? Sorry, wrong guy.
Barcelona, Greenwich, Norwalk, Stamford: when the chairs and tables move away at night, the party begins. During the shuffle, tell your date that you want to see other people, then get lost in the crowd.
Bodega Taco Bar, Darien and Fairfield: have a server splash you with a glass of water then slap you across the face. Explain your sordid history, your date leaves, and then drink some tequila with the chicos y chicas. Don’t forget to leave extra gratuity for the show.
Dolce Cubano, Stamford: explain to your date that you are actually a Cuban refugee. Jump on random boat on nearby dock. Wave bye. Wait for date to leave, then come back and throw those drinks down the hatch at the bar.
Harvest, Greenwich: tell your locavore bf or gf that you are going on a diet of only foods that are produced in mega factories. He or she will leave, disgusted with you, then you proceed to share some farm to table fare with that hottie next to you at the bar.
Red Lulu, Norwalk: this will take some preparation. Visit Red Lulu, check out some of the lucha libre wrestling masks, get a replica, then head back with your date. Explain how you have a confession: you are a lucha libre wrestler and need to go on tour throughout Mexico. Note: if you are Chinese, Irish, Swedish, or Scandanavian, this might not work as well as you’d like.
Spotted Horse, Westport: tell him that right after you get some drinks and have a nice meal, you want to check out Urban Outfitters next door and that you deserve lots of presents for Valentine’s Day. Watch the magic as he discovers something that he has to do and leaves you behind…muahahaha. Now you’re ready to play the field.
The Spread, Norwalk: wait a minute before the dj begins his set at night to break up. Then, when the music hits and the place goes crazy, pretend like you can’t hear anything. Your frustrated ex will leave and you can start the night off right!
Zaza Italian Gastrobar, Stamford: as you take each bite, go a little Harry Met Sally on your date and moan loud enough so everybody turns their heads in disapproval. Your date will ask you to stop, but you’ll need to persist and keep moaning louder. Eventually, your date will ditch you for good, allowing you the luxury of hitting up the bar and being a part of the scene here.
And, if you’re happily in love with your mate, then check out our events page for a list of fun Valentine’s Day dinners and specials.
