Hey, we totally hit up Red Lobster one year in college. πŸ™‚ I think we went to some Japanese restaurant that’s pretty cheap one year too. Grad school for me doesn’t exactly make us want to spend $100+ on a dinner now either. ONE DAY we might. Lol

This year we’re keeping it simple still. We aren’t big into “fancy dinners” and usually reserve that for anniversaries. Not when every other couple is there for the same reason. LOL.

I will say, when we went to Red Lobster, there were screaming kids in the lobby and FI’s super-romantic self asked that we not be seating near them. πŸ™‚ He’s a keeper.

Last year we tried for the “nice” resturant in town to be told that they had a fixed menu that was 99 a plate. No thank you. This year and last we went to (try for the 12th our date anniversary or the 10th my birthday) to the Italian place next door. Not nearly as nice but still decent food.

Of course for really classy, for my 21st we had root beer and chinese take-out. I love a no fuss celebration. πŸ™‚

The Outbacks by me don’t actually take reservations. They say that they do and they allow you to put your name in but they’re not actually reserving a table for you. We made “reservations” for dinner once and when we showed up we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. I told them we had a reservation but it didn’t seem to matter. Needless to say, some choice words were spoken and we took our business elsewhere. Hopefully the Outback by you is less annoying. 

But to answer your question, Fiance and I are going to V-Day brunch tomorrow at a local hotel and then I’m making a yummy dinner that will consist of porterhouse steaks, mushroom risotto, prosciutto and phyllo wrapped asparagus and dinner rolls on Monday night.

We finally got our act together last night to book a place (that’s right, 3 days in advance).  We have a restaurant coupon book that his sister got us for Christmas, and we just started making calls to find a place that wasn’t full.  Fourth restaurant had an opening at 7:00, so that’s how we found our place.

A couple years ago, Valentine’s Day was on a Saturday but we had a huge test Monday.  So we went out for tacos on V-Day during a study break (picture a small step up from Taco Bell), and then had a fancy dinner Monday after our exam.  So Outback doesn’t sound too shabby to me!

We’re going to breakfast.  Probably at Friendly’s.  FI works second shift, so we can’t do dinner.  Keeping it classy for sureeee.

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that!

We’re going to Longhorn Steakhouse for v-day. If it were up to me, we’d be doing italian, but unfortunately we can never agree on food. My fiance is such a meat & potatoes person, it drives me nuts.

My husband and I went to Chili’s last night.  They don’t have reservations but they have call ahead so we did that and basically got there, they gave us the buzzer and took it right back at we were seated!  Glad we called ahead though!

My sister got proposed to in the parking lot of an Outback Steakhouse, where they had just eaten for her 19th birthday! I say who cares as long as you’re with the one you love!

We went to a local Asian fusion place that I have been dying to try. My Fiance is a very meat and potatoes guy who rations out how often we order Chinese because he doesn’t like it, so I have to say that I was impressed that he was really insistent that we go there since I love it. He also ended up really loving our dinner, too, and can’t wait to go back! But I guess that’s the difference between the generic Chinese buffet of our tiny hometown and a privately owned authentic place in the city where I am now going to school!
