It’s a day of either love or dread, depending on our own individual situation. And while those singletons among us might feel dread at not having a date, the feeling is magnified if you *do* have a date, but haven’t yet made plans (and if that’s you, you’re cutting it awfully close). For some last minute ideas, we’ve thrown together a list of some of the best special dinners and events in the PRD for Valentine’s Day. You can see a full listing in our Events section.
