valentines day


oh lucky us!  with Valentines day falling on a Sunday this year we hope Valentines day will be celebrated all weekend.  As usual we will have an a la carte menu filled with plenty of romantic (or at least red) food.  There will be no prix fixe

the origins of valentines day 

From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain. how we got from there to love, chocolate and roses I don't know.  I'm kind of glad I don't have to sacrifice a goat
