Double-Whammy Weekend

We all know what "holiday" is right around the corner. But I am one of the lucky (unlucky?) ones that gets a double-whammy this time of year. Yes, it is also my birthday. Only separated from Valentine's Day by two days, I've always received a "bundled" package from every boyfriend. I'm doing my best to train "R" that these two days need to each be celebrated, and he is slowly catching on. We are planning to dine out on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday, but the thought crossed my mind this morning that we should probably make reservations since many couples will be out dining this weekend. That led me to this post...Here's a list of some upcoming Valentine's Day (Weekend) specials and dinners happening around Cleveland. If you haven't yet made plans with that special someone (or your friends), I hope that this helps!
