I remember Valentine’s Day was a big deal in Coralville elementary school. One year we all made individual mailboxes decorated with red construction paper and lots of shiny, stick-on hearts. Classmates would then place their valentines into the boxes and we opened them at the big Valentine’s Day party. I was beside myself with excitement over the prospect of a party and getting to open all of those valentines. These days, having reached a certain age, I am not so inclined to join in on the traditional Valentine’s Day gift giving and card exchanges, but I still do enjoy a nice dinner for two at a good restaurant to celebrate a long and happy relationship.
This would be the time to make those dinner reservations. If you wait too long you will likely end up at Pizza Hut. Not that there’s anything wrong with Pizza Hut, but I’m just sayin’ … There are the sure-bet places like Castagna, Paley’s Place, Roots, Higgin’s, and so on but for some interesting, and a little off the beaten path places, try the establishments listed in the link below. They’re not all sit-down, dinner places but there’s something for everyone.
I’ll give you a full report as to where we went and what we enjoyed.
