Yes, yes. We know. Valentine's Day is overrated. If you're single, it's a day seemingly created just to make you feel bad about yourself. If you're in a relationship, it's a day seemingly concocted to make you drop cash on dinner and presents a mere two months after the holiday present season.
Luckily, plenty of places in Los Angeles feel your pain and are not above mocking the holiday -- meaning there are still ways to go out and actually have fun on Valentine's Day.

Have some built-up breakup hostility? Release your tensions with a lunchtime kickboxing class at Crunch Fitness in Burbank, where you're invited to focus your aggression by taping a picture of an ex to an opponent's mitt. And trendy spin center SoulCycle is offering Valentine's-themed rides (think lots of breakup music) at 4:15 p.m. at their Brentwood studio and 7:30 p.m. at their West Hollywood location. And, to ensure that everyone gets a present on Valentine's Day, SoulCycle's new Santa Monica studio is giving first-timers vouchers for free classes (coupons are shaped like hearts, natch).
9. Love Hurts at LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art would like to remind all moping singles that it could be worse. The museum's guided Love Hurts tour features works of art depicting heartbreak, jealousy and disastrous affairs. You can then drown your sorrows in chef Jason Fullilove's four-course dinner, which features roast chicken with black truffles and Tahitian vanilla crème brule.
