One of D.C.’s coolest parties of the year took place on one of the most divisive days of the year. Whether you love all the sugar and pink and floral aspects of Valentine’s Day or you’re determined to show the world that it’s a holiday crafted by card companies, Transfomer’s Heartbreakers Ball was a bastion of good times. Bad Religion’s Brian Baker DJ-ed, there was a kissing booth by Linda Hesh, there were DIY Valentine’s photo cards courtesy of Lomography, all the booze your heart desires, and most importantly, there was plenty of amazing art for sale.

If you didn’t go this year, one look at our party photos will make you deeply regret that. We’re hoping this becomes our new Valetine’s Day tradition.
