A WaHo Valentine's Day
Two eggs over easy. Hashbrowns-- scattered, of course. OJ. Whole wheat toast.
OH baby, this is the recipe for romance on Valentine's Day! As a silly joke, my date and I kept saying that we were going to go to the Waffle House in celebration of Cupid's favorite day. Of course, everyone looked at us like we were crazy and laughed, thinking we'd give in to the pressures of Hallmark's marketing techniques and go somewhere "special"... but fear not! I'm no high maintenance chick. Our plan got much more serious when I got wind of the WaHo's special plan for their customers on this occasion. On the radio, they were saying that, by reservation only, select Waffle Houses in the Atlanta area would be dressing up their restaurants with white table cloths, dim lights, flowers and candles in honor of Valentine's Day! I'd never heard of this before, but apparently 2012 was their 5th year doing it, and not surprisingly, it gets more popular every year. So, we donned our traditional Valentine's Day red and headed out to celebrate my love for eggs at the south's favorite breakfast joint, Waffle House. Upon arrival, the door was held as we walked in to the balloon-filled restaurant, there was a maître'd awaiting our names for reservation, the waiters all had on black bow ties and the spherical lights hanging from the ceiling were covered with candy heart stickers with sayings such as "be mine". Needless to say, it was fun to see my late night hangout all dressed up and a fantastic low-key way to celebrate... plus, you can't beat a lovely dinner for two for less than $20 -- including tip! Happy Valentines Day!!
