If things don’t go as planned on February 14th, shake things off and dance the night away at Albuquerque’s sensational Effex Night Club. Join in as Effex takes the party to a whole new level — all three levels to be exact! Get down in the main room with Dom Drapper, swing it over to the lounge with The Housekeepers, and then bounce your way up to the rooftop with Burn The Disco and many more musical appearances. All part of the 2nd annual XOXO. Doors open at 9 p.m. — ages 21+ only.

Perk of being single on Valentine’s Day? You don’t have to share your milkshake! Hop into your time traveling DeLorean with your Pink Ladies or T-Birds, go back to the past and shower in the 50’s and 60’s nostalgia. Finely dine a cheeseburger, down one of their many spectacular milkshakes, all while being surrounded by a huge collection of Pez, Elvis Presley, and even blast your favorite tune on the jukebox.

After you finish that keen burger and shake, roll on down to Roller King with your friends and party like it’s 1984! Admission is free on Wednesdays 6-8pm, so you can spend that spare $6 on a Pizza 9 slice, or even play some old school video games at the arcade. On the brightside, you won’t embarrass yourself in front of a Valentine when you inevitably fall on the rink.
Wednesday: Adult Night (18+) 8pm-10pm
Roller King: 400 Paisano St. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87123
