Forget Jason Voorhees. Nothing makes for a more frightful Friday the 13th than the dread of facing Valentine’s Day with the rising of the sun. Anticipating this sentiment, Mellow Mushroom hosted its annual “F- Cupid” Anti-Valentine’s Day party on Friday night. Despite the fête’s frank opposition to the warm fuzzies of Cupid & Co., plenty of partygoers could be found entwined in PBR-induced make-out sessions. The Red Bull promotions team was there handing out cham-bulls, the latest marriage of the vogue energy drink and an alcoholic beverage, champagne in this case. The second floor bar was jam-packed with a diverse crowd of patrons, with co-eds stationed at the bar enjoying drink specials and hipsters out on the dance floor shaking their skinny jeans to house music. While the libations and love flowed at a steady pace, DJ Rocky Horror ensured that the music stayed throw-back yet fresh, a mélange of perfectly fused tracks.
