For some ­– namely single gays entrenched in their singleness – Valentine’s is a tough time. On Sunday, Ten had the perfect remedy for that angst: Bitter Ball.

DJ Rob Reum provided the music so lovers with bitter or broken hearts could find cover – and a cocktail or three – to suffer through the Hallmark holiday. But the Valentine’s fun wasn’t just for the bitter. Sweethearts were welcomed too.
