Valentine's Day at Chalk

from Chalk Food + Wine:

Valentines Day at CHALK food + wine:
No longer will Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati's single voices go unheard on this daunting holiday! Leave the sap and romance to less independent people!
This year, don't drink yourself into a lonely oblivion or eat ice cream at home in solitude!

Instead, attend a "Singles Dining Event" at Chalk food + wine in Covington

In addition to our regular menu Chef Jared Whalen will offer a 5 course tasting menu comprised of oysters, king crab, scallops, filet mignon, and dessert by pastry chef Summer Genetti. The cost for our tasting menu is$49/ person with an additional $29 for course specific wine pairings.

This Valentines Day, spoil yourself, and no-one else!

Good grief. How cheesey.

I'm glad I won't be eating there. Ever.

And oh how happy you not going there makes us who do go.

Bitchy, Bitchy, Bitchy 5:03. And incidentally anonymous at 4:12 is right--it is incredibly cheesy and just another example of how they are trying oh-so-hard to be cool. Again, I give it 6 months--3 if they continue with silly things like this.

I'm with you, Mary...
My God, how uncomfortable would it be to be at a singles function on Valentine's Day?

And don't get me started on Valentine's Day, anyway... LOL!

It's a total Hallmark Holiday. Intellectually I know it and I don't like it, but darn it I better get some flowers and chocolates all the same.

Dear God, I would NEVER go out to eat on Valentine's Day. It's pure amatuer night. It is the most hellish day of the year to work at a restaurant, second only to Mother's Day brunch.

That ad is way cheesey, BTW. I can't believe that Jean-Robert would put something like that out. It looks like something the kids running this restaurant pulled together. Count me out too.

I think it looks fun. I won't go, because I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, but what a tough crowd! :-)
