Valentine’s Day Traditions

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  Today is a very special day where you can show your loved one how much you care! Some people make it a big deal, others don’t. For my boyfriend and I, we usually go out to dinner and give each other gifts. But this year, it was different. We both decided […]

Nothing Says I Love You Like…

They say (whoever they are) that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Despite the anatomical argument against it, it very well could be true. Cupid knows the first, second and future dates I’ve procured due to the promise of my culinary skills. With today being Valentine’s Day, the most loving of […]

A little box of chocolates

Valentine’s Day was yesterday, and the two most common presents for this holiday are flowers, and chocolate. Yes, it is just another Hallmark Holiday, but it is still about the chocolate. When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of eating too much chocolate, even though I do not like it very much, and then […]

Bahama Breeze

Bahama Breeze is a very nice Caribbean restaurant with multiple locations. It has moderately priced food for the most part, but some entrees can be on the expensive side. Last night, my boyfriend took me there for Valentine’s Day. I love the restaurant, along with others, so I expected it to be crowded, but this was […]

Noshing Around: Tucson, Valentines Day

This year Valentine’s Day in Tucson is a trifecta of sorts. First of all, it’s Valentine’s Day which is always a popular night to dine out. Secondly, V-Day is on a Saturday (Feb. 14) so this all encompassing date night does double duty. Lastly, it’s near the end of Tucson’s Gem Show so there will be […]
