Love is in the air and so is the sweet smell of incredible cuisine.
Perhaps, you're not the greatest at cooking, though. For the love of food, treat your date — or yourself — to one of the dinners, deals, or entertaining events happening this year. Make 'em say ooh la la instead of ew nah nah.
So, if you're looking for a night out on the town with your significant other, you're in for a treat once you glance over these enticing menus. Some are positioned on the "fine dining" side of the table, while other restaurants are hosting a more casual experience. Keep in mind that some of these events are happening the day before Valentine's Day.

They'll be offering all-you-can-eat tacos, chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne flavored cupcakes, games, raffles, and a pinata. If that doesn't get you excited enough, there's going to be swag bags for the first 25 people.
