We used our wedding china for the first time and watched Baz Luhrrman's Romeo and Juliet on TV. It was one of the most romantic nights of my life. Rancher'sGirl 5 years My husband surprised me by taking me to our favorite restaurant for lunch yesterday...not crowded and much less expensive. I confess it is just a simple Chinese restaurant but they serve absolutely delicious food and the prices are easy on our budget. Also, the staff are genuinely nice. We don't usually go to "fancy" restaurants/bistros except when we visit Carmel, CA and go to Jack London Grill. It is not to be missed! :) HORSEYJUNIOR 5 years We had a great Valentine's Day! Grilled steaks and fresh veggies - I cooked - he cleaned! Ummmm good! msdecember 5 years definitely staying in. i can't take the higher prices that restaurants try to run on you on valentine's day. actually, i will be making the chocolate pot recipe found on yumsugar. YAY! xxstardust 5 years Not a big fan of V-day, and we went out to a fancy dinner a week and a half ago for our anniversary. We'll save the night out for next month .. March 14th is Steak and BJ day! ; ) SusanTeufel 5 years We went to lunch today, seeing I don't like waiting in line...but it wasn't anywhere fancy. CiaoBella01 5 years going to a parisian french bistro restaurant in montreal, qc. one of the only restaurants without those annoying valentine's day set menus jopperma 5 years Going to Atlas Restaurant in St. Louis. http://www.atlasrestaurantstl.com/special.html le-romantique 5 years We are. Its our first one together and we're going to our favorite place, its not "FANCY" like black tie, but its quite nice. Best food in town. I always feel bad going out because he insists on paying, so I've been cooking dinner on n off a lot the past month... we used to only go out.... not good on the $$. Pampire 5 years We were goin to go out but I think the snow has different plans for us! I am officially sick of snow! :( Spectra 5 years Nope, I'm cooking a gourmet meal at home when my husband gets home from Arizona at the end of the month. goddessru 5 years Valentine's day is such a made up holiday, my fiance and I- in the 9 years we've been together- never celebrate it. We believe in loving each other and showing it every day in special ways. number6_ed 5 years Wild Ginger in Seattle. I've heard from three people at work that it is sooooo good! danaruth 5 years Going out to dinner on Valentine's Day kind of seems like going to a bar on St. Patrick's Day: too much hoopla, overpriced goods, and a crowd of obnoxious amateurs in the periphery! :P We'll make something at home, and maybe go out the next weekend. I think I might make the Broiled Shrimp Cocktail again - that is a great dish, with a big salad and some champagne. Yummy! kia 5 years Nope, our usual is homemade valentines and making a sweet meal together. hex913 5 years We have learned from experience not to go out to eat on V-Day. Instead, we call in an order to a take-out place and have a romantic dinner at home. melinda19 5 years Not fancy, but a cozy little Italian place with good wine and fresh pasta and sauces !! Food 5 years AmberHoney, I'm with you. That's why I'm staying in. But if we had the funds to go out, I'd want to go to Cyrus in Napa, because it's supposed to be ultraromantic. AmberHoney 5 years I prefer less crowds and better food, so we'll dine out some time later :heart: GlowingMoon 5 years Nope.
