…a White Castle.
Ever since I was a kid, around this time of year White Castle would plead with passers-by on its marquee to make reservations for Valentine’s Day before it was too late.
Yes, reservations at White Castle. For Valentine’s Day. Read the details.
The cornerstone of this fine dining experience is the Cupid’s Crave Kit (which for some reason isn’t available in Chicago, so you’ll have to order from the menu), which includes “eight cheeseburgers, one sack of fries, two regular soft drinks, coupons and keepsake items to heat up your homespun romance.” From prior visits to this esteemed restaurant, I estimate that one would expect to pay about $10.00 for the whole meal.
To see what you’re getting yourself into, check out this eGullet thread chronicling the experience (via Gaper’s Block).
And really, since you’re getting coupons, it makes total financial sense. Enjoy the slyders, and the unforgettable memories you’ll have.
