02116 Travel Guide
If you have a reason to celebrate Valentine's day, you probably already have plans of some sort. If you only have a reason to mourn, however, you could still be contemplating: bar with friends? movie at home? shooting range? Well, here's one option for you singles in the Boston area. Kevin Federline will be hosting an Anti-Valentine's Day party on February 9 at Gypsy Bar. Friday night partygoers can bring photos of their exes to shred or simply enjoy a drink with "the biggest EX of the year."
For a bit of pampering to fill the void of romance in your life, you could opt for a stay at the Four Seasons Boston, which is close by on Boylston Street. It won't come cheap though: weekend rates are sold out, and standard rates are $625.
The club is promoting the party with a line on the website that reads "Are you among the most jaded? Come party with America’s Most Hated, Kevin Federline (yes – for real)." Oh, we don't doubt it's for real. What else does he have to do?

Yes, we know. It's hard to believe that Boston hosts a tattoo convention, one would think Vegas would be more attendees' speed, but it's on in Beantown this weekend: The Boston Tattoo Convention 2005, held at the Boston Center for the Arts today through Sunday.
If you can get there, it looks like a pretty interesting lineup. They are having tons of great skin artists there, a 'tattoo of the day' contest each day, a 'lizardman freakshow' (we can only imagine what he looks like) and artist interviews and live broadcasts. Don't worry, the whole thing's met Boston Health Dept. standards year after year, and with vendors like New England Surgical Center, it's not for amateurs.
Tickets are available at the door only, and apparently last year the place was filled to capacity so get there early. And a hint: don't do the Manny Ramirez thing. For some reason we bet someone's already thought of it....
