This Valentine's Day, Red Door Tavern on Roswell Road invites you to bring a photo, letter or other shreddable memento (like his favorite concert T-shirt) and "Shred Your Ex" at the bar. In exchange, you'll get a free well cocktail to wash down any lingering bitterness. You can also get $3 Truly in cans or draft.
