  1. Unfortunately, I won’t have a cuddle bug for valentine’s day. I asked out this girl I met a month ago and she said she is dating someone else. Table for one? Yes 🙁

  2. The hubby and I are staying in. He makes a wonderful fondue, just like the Melting Pot so I’m looking forward to that. Of course our anniversary is coming up so maybe we’ll go out for that when it’s less busy!

  3. Valentine’s Day often coincides with javelina season so the hun and I are blowing off this Saturday and making up for it on our anniversary.

  4. Fear not JP, the chances are high that her other guy will flunk the test of Valentine’s Day. Then she’ll be available and you’ll have a whole year to study for the test.

  5. I am going to the Biltmore for dinner. and really only becuase v-day falls on a saturday. but all of Fox’s options soudns awesome too.

  6. I love all of these places! Fox Restaurants have amazing foods at all of their locations. They have a ton of different variety too!

  7. I love Greene House…their french fries and fish tacos are really good. Unfortunately the bf and I are on a budget this year, but all those places sound fantastic for love day!
