Valentine's Day -- Feh
I'm not a curmudgeon. Really, I'm not. But I'm getting awfully tired of all the mushy, gushy Valentine's Day press releases that have been descending on my computer like clouds of gnats these past few days. How many "love inns," "Cupid's hideaways" and "romantic spas" can a moderately well-adjusted person take?
Much more to my taste is the offer from the White Castle hamburger chain for candlelight Valentine's Day dinners ("Make reservations now!"), which fellow cynic Elissa Leibowitz Poma brought to our attention. The chain is featuring reserved candlelight dining at many of its eateries around the country on Feb. 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. According to the blurb, "If you crave the steam-grilled goodness of White Castle then you've found the perfect dinner destination to share with your favorite Valentine. Not only can cravers dine with candlelight, the tables will be adorned with flowers and decorations. Customers will be presented with a special menu and will receive table side service ..." You can also take a "Cupid's Crave Kit" (eight cheeseburgers, one sack of fries, two sodas) home to your sweetie if he/she can't drag him/herself off the sofa. Now that's the kind of offer we like to publicize.
As long as we're in snarky V-Day mode -- any nominations for most UNromantic getaway? C'mon, share, it'll make you feel better.
