White Castle Valentines

We had reservations. Did you?

Valentines Day at White Castle was something we had seen advertised before, but one of us would be working or we would forget about it until it was too late. Then we moved to Pittsburgh, and there weren't any White Castles there, not that the husband would have been able to be home anyways (yeah, he traveled a lot). 

So, this year we actually remembered fairly early and were able to get a reservation at our second choice location (our first choice was already full). 

When we got there, one of the women working took our name and showed us to our reserved table. We're pretty important people, didn't you know?

They had all the tables decorated with red table clothes, white place mats and a fun sparkly center piece. Each table also had plastic White Castle vases especially for Valentines, which we were able to take home with us. 

The menu was pretty much the same as their every day menu, but they did have some special combos, including one perfect for a couple on Valentines; 10 sliders, 2 drinks and 2 fries for like $12. While that is a good deal, we decided to pick a few different things. 

I had a couple cheeseburgers and some chicken rings while the husband decided on a few cheeseburgers  and some bacon cheeseburgers as well.

We didn't really know what to expect, but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. Most of the people there were other couples, some young and old, and whole families too. There was a man that came in with two women, who were all dressed like they were straight out of the 1800's. We never did hear the full story behind that. White Castle even has a flickr page, where you can see photos of the Valentines Day celebrations from all over. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day, and if you live any where near a White Castle, I would suggest giving this a try for your Valentines Day celebrations next year.

Peace out *g*
