The most romantic day of the year is right around the corner, and several restaurants are hoping to be the place where couples celebrate their love for one another with a special meal.
Since the holiday falls on a Tuesday this year, several chain establishments have extended their offers for meal deals to begin the weekend before, to accomodate busy schedules which may keep couples from celebrating on the day itself, and almost any place a couple could desire, will have some sort of offer on the table.
So whether you're feeling fancy, are super laid back, or honestly just feel like staying home and getting delivery, here are options to take advantage of this Valentine's Day (and weekend):
