If you are reading this on the Wednesday before Valentine’s Day (Friday) and you still have not made a reservation…well, move it. Otherwise, you’ll be dining with the early bird special folks, or at 10 pm.

Romantic Boite

Unplugged, downtown’s newest wine bar (or perhaps its only wine bar) offers a Valentine's dinner with 4-courses for $45/pp with seating options at 5, 7:15, and 9:30 pm. The ambience at Unplugged mirrors an intimate boite reminiscent of Seattle or San Francisco. Unplugged

Cotton Candy

Janos Wilder shines in downtown Tucson and you can be sure that this Valentine dinner will be first class with 3-courses ($50/pp) or 4-courses ($65/pp) plus tax and gratuity. The special dessert intrigues me – rich chocolate praline + Amarena cherry cotton candy. Downtown Kitchen & Cocktails

Flautist Mary Redhouse

Bear Track Winery in the Tucson Foothills will serve a combination of buffet and passed menu items. Think poached salmon, antipasto, petite beef Wellington, mini lamb lollipops, and more plus a bottle of red or white wine, dessert and chocolate port. Native flute player Mary Redhouse is a member of the Dine’ (Navajo tribe) and a 2005 Grammy nominee in the New Age Category for her work on the Canyon Records release, “People of Peace” with the R. Carlos Nakai Quartet. $80/per couple at Bear Track Winery

Let there be lunch. Romance happens any time of the day. At Ghini’s French Caffe, savor the aphrodisiac lunch for two from 11 am to 2 pm for $25/couple or a special 3-course prix fixe dinner which includes a glass of wine for $45/pp (not including tax and gratuity).

The Odd Couple

Harold Et Maude is a timeless movie classic about a 70-something woman and a 19 year old boy/man who fall in love, really? Cougar extraordinaire! While I think it’s personally an odd choice for a Valentine’s Day movie, the Loft Cinema makes expert programming choices for what works. There’s also a costume contest, a prize for the couple with the biggest age difference and some goodies for romantics. So go to the movies! Eat pizza by Fresco Pizzeria and organic popcorn, imbibe from a distinctive selection of bottled beers and hard cider, and splurge on Dots, paletas or vegan peanut butter cookies. Loft Cinema
