There are some of us in the dating trenches who dread Valentines Day, with the attendant hearts and flowers, candy and Cupids—it can all feel just a little much for the unattached among us, and we find ourselves seeking the camaraderie of our fellow singletons, sharing war stories, and keeping our spirits up. It's in that vein that we partner with St-Germain, Chambers Eat+Drink, and Hotel Vitale to present a special evening in the City celebrating one of the most reliable and rewarding kinds of love: the kind shared with friends.
Share your personal story of how your best friends helped you navigate the single life in San Francisco—relationship mistakes, a dry spell, or even an awkward first date—and helped you get your groove back!
**Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (please include your full name stating that you are at least 21 years of age.)** Our editors will review and post the most compelling stories for public voting, and if your story gets the most votes, you and up to six of your closest besties will receive a fantastic night out, including:
A happy hour with specialty St-Germain cocktails in a reserved area at the award-winning Americano Restaurant on the Embarcadero, followed by dinner in the private dining room;
A night out at the stunningly designed hotspot Chambers, with table service featuring a selection of bar bites from Executive Chef Trevor Ogden's seasonal menu, and St-Germain cocktails curated by bar program director Neyah White;
An in-room nightcap at Hotel Vitale, finished with an overnight stay in a Deluxe City View room with two queen beds for the winner and one guest!
7x7 will also have a photographer on-hand to capture the fun from happy hour to nightcap, to be included in a special promotional feature revealed later in the year!
