Ahh February… as we near the end of the first week of February we embrace fresh snow, longer days, and love. Valentine’s Day is only around the corner and whether you are single or in a relationship we have something for you. So cheers to celebrating LOVE in Whistler.

Tired of swiping right on Tinder and sifting through your DM’s then we have the event for you – Tapley’s Tinder.  On Thursday, February 13th you are invited to come swipe left or right in real life! This is not your typical speed dating event, but rather this event will feature DJ’s, fun and games, blind dates, and so much more. Sign up starts at 8 pm and speed dating will start around 9 PM.

If you are single and want to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) with a night on the town with your ladies then you will want to head to Buffalo Bills on Friday, February 14th for Ladies Night. Ladies get complimentary entry and a glass of bubbly before 10 PM.
