Love Bites 2015


Are you snarky, not sentimental? Think Valentine’s Day is commercial and crass? Is Cupid stupid? Then LOVE BITES is the program for you! Come join us as we make fun of romance in all its ooey-gooey grossness.

We’ll chow some chocolate, take a stab at making a voodoo valentine’s doll, mock romcoms & romance novels, do some black scratch anti-valentine’s hearts and play some goofy games. So come to LOVE BITES and give cupid the kiss off, take the sweet out of bittersweet and put the loathe in lothario.

Friday, Feb. 6th @ Southglenn - 4-5 PM

Saturday, Feb. 14 @ Smoky Hill - 3-4 PM

Ages: 11-17
