Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year, and that means that the love-celebrating will likely be spread out from Friday through about Tuesday or so of next week for most.
That bodes well for those of us (usually me) who forget to make a reservation, since not every single person in town will be trying to have a romantic dinner on the same night.
It’s still probably a good idea to make a reservation anyway, and as it happens, there are a ton of special Valentine’s menu’s, specials, and other love related items on the list this week to help you make your dinner plans on whatever night you plan to celebrate.
Of course, there’s plenty of non-Valentine’s related items below too.
Here’s the list. Have fun.
