Many an individual has been left in the proverbial dog house due to this little day, so here are a few pointers to get you started in the right direction.

Rose Cottage will get that reaction you want from your partner. Grab that 12 ct. ring, necklace, fur hat or handbag and make her giddy.
Going out to lunch or dinner is almost a sure thing, unless you are cooking that romantic candlelight dinner for two. What is more cozy and quaint than an Italian restaurant? Curt’s Cucina will have you cuddling close over calamari and a Chianti in no time. Firefly Kitchen & Bar is the area’s newest opening that is perfect for the occasion with share plates for small to larger parties and a specialty drink list to get the night started off right. If you don’t have the time or dime for a full dinner, head over to Di’lishi Frozen Yogurt Bar and build your own dessert be it full fat, low fat, or no sugar added. Daily changing flavors and a 60+ topping bar make it tasty and a treat as well as supporting local charities. Whatever delightful dining destination you choose, be sure to call immediately to get that reservation for you and your sweetie as Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest for restaurants.
