Valentines Day at Belfast Clubs
If you're single and in need of a little help to get Cupid to notice you, my advice is don't stay in, moping about. Instead, get dressed up and head straight to a nightclub. And this year, I'm afraid to say, you may not be able to avoid it because Valentines Day falls on a Saturday.
