Let’s be honest, we have a lot going on right now. Perhaps it only recently occurred to you that Valentine’s Day is upon us. (Give yourself a break – it’s been Marchuary eleven-teenth every day for the past few months.) Luckily, you still have time to make this Valentine’s Day stand out from the monotony your sweatpants are used to. We can do this!
Some things haven’t changed too much this year: you can still find a heartfelt card, and florists are open and available. But the going-out-to-dinner part is harder. Here are some great local restaurants and businesses ready to help you mark the occasion, even this late in the game. Check out the meals with the links below, or skip to dessert!
