When you're flying solo, either by choice or by a (not always cruel) happenstance of fate, Valentine's Day can be a beast of a time to venture out into the big, wide world unaccompanied. This Black Thursday, choose a drinking establishment that won't be overrun with canoodlers cooing over the inevitable prix-fixe menu.
That might mean grabbing a people-watching spot downtown at the Whole Foods bar, making a host of new friends over karaoke at Ego's, catching live music at Hole In The Wall or scoring a single-drinker special of Boone's Farm out on the east side at Gourmands. Whatever your scene of choice, there's something for single everyones on Eater Austin's Where To Drink Alone On Valentine's Day map.
