I heart Google. Why? Because I just Googled "Nothing says Valentine's like" and came up with:

-an adult-art themed show

-insuring a getaway trip (link not working)

and

-curling with your sweetheart

In that order.

Not exactly what you had in mind for your sweetie this Valentine's? There's always butter.

Like the heart-shaped gooey butter cake that Park Avenue Coffee (1919 Park Avenue) plans to serve up this weekend. An e-mail from the Lafayette Square hang-out, which the RFT awarded Best Gooey Butter Cake last year, let me know that they're taking special orders for the cake all the way through Friday.
