They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I say that’s partially true. It should be that the way to any person’s heart is through their stomach and taste buds. If the former adage were true, then why is it that the fellas are under the gun every February 14 to make sure they pick the perfect spot to wine and dine their romantic counterparts?
At Tucson Foodie, we’re providing a community service to our friends who are tasked with procuring plans for a wonderful night out in celebration of their loved ones. We’ve compiled some Valentine’s Day offerings highlights, ranging in price point and cuisine, from around the greater Tucson area. No need to thank us, we are happy to do it so that these couples remain united to enjoy Tucson food together throughout the year.
