Singles Can Mingle at Casual Castell General Store Valentine’s Day Party

A Valentine’s Day singles party is 7 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Castell General Store. It’s meant to be a casual, fun, inclusive event, say organizers.

“Find true love” in Castell.

The Castell General Store is holding a Valentine’s Day singles party. It’s a casual evening with appetizers and drinks, face-to-face conversations, and games.

Why should couples have all the fun on Cupid’s holiday, asked Castell General Store co-owner Jennifer Hollingshead.

“We figured singles needed a place to go and hang out,” she said. “Why not have something for singles? We thought it would be fun.”

The party starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, at the store, 19522 RR 152 in Castell.

Interactive games include a variation of the TV show “The Dating Game” as well as something resembling speed dating.

But no pressure. Just come ready to have a good time and be open to meeting others, Hollingshead said.

“It doesn’t have to be uptight,” she said. “Some people do stuff over the computer, but we want people to see each other face to face and meet.”

Could there be a fairy-tale ending in store for some?

“Meet each other and find true love,” Hollingshead said.

But the singles party is really just a fun, inclusive event.

“You feel bad because you wonder, ‘Where do single people go on Valentine’s?’ You can go out to eat, but why not have a hangout for singles? We don’t want people sitting at home; we want to make them feel special,” she said.
