Darn it, plans got trashed. Visiting one of your favorite restaurants to celebrate and even trying to make early reservations for an upcoming Saturday sometimes just doesn’t work out. Of course the restaurant is sorry to decline due to a huge event that day and graciously offers a slot 7 days later, which you happily accept. A beggar can’t be chooser, right?! Of course it doesn’t dawn on you immediately, but sure enough a week later you realize, hey you just made reservations for Valentine’s day – a day you’re perfectly fine with not giving the time of day, a day you’d never eat out voluntarily. Yet we did take the plunge and were not disappointed – not at all.
What’s your take? Any odd experiences with restaurant visits on Valentine’s day? Is it a ‘can do’ or ‘never ever’? Anything to keep in mind?
