Candy Crush Friends Saga partners with Dirt Candy to offer solo diners free Valentine's Day dinner

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're a solo diner looking to enjoy the holiday free of shame, Candy Crush Friends Saga has you covered. 

King, creator of the popular mobile game franchise, announced it is "is on a mission to make this Valentine’s Day sweeter than ever for solo diners -- and anyone else who deserves to treat themselves to a little ‘Me Time’!" That "mission" involved a partnership with popular New York restaurant Dirt Candy, known for its innovative vegetarian tasting menus. The two brands plan to spin the "solo=sad" Valentine's Day narrative into a lively one with its singles-only dinner. 

'SWEET'N SOLO' will open for one night only on February 14, and will be limited to 20 diners over the age of 21. Each diner will experience complimentary cocktails along with a multi-course dinner filled with dishes inspired by the hit game.

"'Me time’ is one of the best ways to reset and embark on a sweet escape, so we want people to treat themselves this Valentine’s Day, whether that’s indulging in a dinner for one or simply taking time out of their busy day to kick back and play a few holiday‐themed rounds of Candy Crush Friends Saga," said Sebastian Knutsson, Chief Creative Officer at King.   

Interested patrons can win free tickets online by posting a selfie or video along with a caption explaining why you deserve a seat. Contestants must also tag #SweetNSoloContest and #CandyCrushFriends for consideration. Entries open February 7 and close February 11 at 11:00 am EST.
