The V-Day You Could Have Had


Valentine's Day was this past week. Yes, it is too late to buy belated–Valentine's Day flowers, but it's not too late to buy sorry-I-forgot–Valentine's Day flowers. And it's never too early to start planning for next year. May I suggest a romantic dinner at that bastion of burger-stand nostalgia, Le Chateau Blanc?
When we first saw that White Castle was having a special Valentine's Day at their locations, Gothamist hoped that someone would go. Thankfully, we have some friends that decided to (our better half hates White Castle). As promised, there were tablecloths, candles, and a host. As a bonus, . . . the manager/greeter at the Metropolitan Ave White Castle even spoke French.

An alternate Valentine's Day experience would have been the San Francisco Zoo adults-only sex tour:

"This is the most tacky, tasteless, smutty, down-in-the-gutter tour ever created," Tollini told the 80 or so adults who piled onto two trams and devoted three hours to tales of fornicating felines and hermaphrodite ostriches.

. . . .

Starting off with penises, Tollini moved on to vaginas, including ones "so large you could lose your family and your SUV in them," and to cloacas, those "multipurpose holes" useful for urination, defecation, egg-laying and sex.

Link. Man is "cloaca" a great word.

According to my friend who lived in Japan for a year, KFC has had this campaign where they have convinced the Japanese that Christmas is a very romantic American holiday. What is more romantic, on an American holiday, than eating some romantic American Kentucky Fried (or Kitchen Fresh) Chicken? Apparently this campaign has been extraordinarily successful, because now you have to make reservations months in advance.

As for Valentines, I can only imagine what they do.
