Valentine’s on the Cheap – it can be done! On February 14th most of the restaurants and theatres are overcrowded, overpriced and the service is just plain dismal. By staying at home you’ll save the pennies, avoid the crowds and increase your intimacy. Are you dreading the thought of spending yet another Valentine’s Day at home? Well, it doesn’t have to be drab and unimaginative.
