Happy Valentine’s Day!

Or not…Lately I haven’t been a fan of this overly sweet, overly pink holiday.  It’s a day where people post about the sweet things that they do for each other.  Question: why can’t you do that on other days?

Additionally, Valentine’s day is THE WORST day to eat out.  Every restaurant is overpriced, serving prix-fix meals for the masses.  Additionally, those same “romantic” restaurants want you in and out in 45 minutes, and you are surrounded by awkward couples on their first date, cougars on their third date of the night, or old sweet couples that make you jealous of how cute they are.

Okay enough griping.  Anyway, for my Valentine’s Day I have decided to enjoy some sushi take out from my favorite spot, with some amazing vino (what obnoxious people call wine) and hopefully a marathon of House of Cards.  But clearly I am a Grinch.  I was going to post about all the places you COULD have a romantic date night, but if you don’t have reservations you ain’t gettin’ in.


If sushi ain’t your thing, try some pizza places or always a win – Chinese food.  If you are being just the cutest sweetest thing ever, let me know where YOU like to go for Valentine’s Day.  And seriously people, have a great Friday!
