I wrote about it last year, and it captured my heart again this year — Valentine’s Day dinners at White Castle. That’s right, the place that sells little bitty hamburgers is doing it again — reservations-only dining by candlelight with table service tonight from 5 to 9 p.m.
As the advertisement on the White Castle Web site says: “The Steam. The Passion. The Hot Little Buns.
“Bring Your Significant Other, Moderately Important Friend or a Complete Stranger.”
If I lived near a participating White Castle, that’s where I would want to be tonight. This 80-year-old hamburger chain — the first fast-food hamburger chain — wins lots and lots of red hearts for this affordable and adorable tradition.
