It looks like a disgruntled ex-lover has been perusing this thread.   :roll:

I for one am excited by the local restaurant choices available this year.  We'll be having an Astoria Valentine's Day celebration.   :mrgreen:

brikka, the FB page with the orange menu is too small to read what's on it, do you happen to have the 2 menus you can post back here?
