Yes, that's right. Anyone who is still trying to overcome a breakup can "shred their ex." Just bring a photo of your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend to the restaurant and tear it up (or ask your waitress). You'll be rewarded with 10 free wings with any purchase of 10 wings. For those guests who'd rather not shred at the location, shred an ex online by visiting shredyourex.hooters.com for a redeemable coupon.

Chef Roberto Dubois and the team at Vagabond are reserving the communal chef's table for ten single ladies only. "We wanted to give single ladies a reason to get dressed up and enjoy Valentine's Day.

6. The Wynwood Yard
The yard is hosting Addicted to Art for a special singles appreciation night, and DJ Le Spam will be on the stage spinning old-school beats. The Bar at the Yard is pouring a Heartbreak Hotel punch special ($5), and there will be art on display. Charcoal, the first full-service restaurant at the Yard, will make its big debut as well. Addicted to Art Miami co-founder and organizer Luis Garcia says, "Valentine's Day isn't geared toward singles and doesn't appreciate them and let's face it, there are a lot of people who are single every Valentine's Day. So you have this big group of people perhaps feeling a little unappreciated that day and we wanted to have something fun for them, as well as support local artists, which is what we do at Addicted to Art Miami." Admission is free.
