Let’s be honest here, if you’re single, the pressure of Valentine’s Day can be grim. Either you’re heading out on a date just because you feel this weird societal pressure that it’s the ‘night of romance’ so you should – or you’re on the sofa wondering if you’re missing out.
Either way, the people behind Kraken rum have come up with a solution. They’re holding an evening of FREE cocktails specifically for people either stuck on an awful date – or those with no date lined up.
The idea is if you’re sitting in a bar and you want to bail all you have to do is send an SOS message to the Kraken with your name, location and ideal extraction time. Within minutes (in theory) a Kraken motorbike rider will roar to the rescue and you’ll be transported through the capital to east London.
On the positive side, this will certainly be a brilliant anecdote to tell your friends. On the downside, it’s pretty brutal. Plus if you’re a woman in a short skirt with a blow dry and heels this mode of transport might not be ideal! Think Kate Hudson jumping on the back of Matthew McConaughey’s bike in 10 Ways To Lose A Guy.
Alternatively, if you’re more of a planner then round up some mates and book in advance. You’ll have some no pressure fun – and, you never know, who you might meet!
