If you must waffle on Valentine's Day, don't make it about who you're taking to dinner. The "where" is a lock: Waffle House.
WALB reports that some Waffle Houses across the chain's 15-state span are tossing tablecloths over the formica and chrome, dimming the lights, pouring alcohol-free sparkling drinks and emphasizing menu items like ribeye and eggs, porkchops or T-bones in addition to their perhaps better-known breakfast fare.
Still too schmancy-pants for your paramour? Participating White Castle outposts are touting a "Hot and Steamy" Valentine's Day event, with free dessert and other "heart-felt mementos" for diners who reserve tables during the appropriate timeframe.
It should be noted that this does not seem to be related to the February-only "Share the Love chili bundle" (including "family chili," 10 sliders and 10 original chicken rings) also currently touted on White Castle's website, but a starry-eyed, onion-breathed lover can dream.
