For those without a Valentine, some music, a number of smiles and a paper shredder may be all you need. One Lincoln bar offers a means to have closure for those who have recently ended a relationship.

Kate Washington, a bartender and part-time DJ for karaoke at the south Lincoln Grata, realized there are people who may be single and not too enthusiastic to celebrate Valentine's Day.

Washington and a co-worker came up with a way for people to celebrate the beginning of a new phase in their lives even on the holiday. They called it Anit-Valentine's Day.

Washington said they decided to bring people together on Thursday night, when the Grata has karaoke. Customers were invited to bring in a photo of themselves with their ex and ceremoniously run it through the paper shredder.

The number of people who showed up was more then normal for a Thursday karaoke night, according to Washington.

There were more singles than couples in attendance Thursday. Washington said it was definitely a good time to come in, especially if you are looking.
