Saturday, Feb. 10: Single, taken or it’s complicated? Whiskey Blue will host the fifth annual Red Light, Green Light Party—a festive night featuring a choice of green, yellow or red wristbands to show off your status. The catch? People who wear the green bands are single and ready to mingle, red-banded are off the market and those in yellow are on the fence. The party will kick off at 9 p.m. with drink specials, party favors and beats provided by DJ Rimby. No cover.
