Survey: 63% of couples staying home for Valentine's Day

OK, this is hardly the most scientific poll we've come across, but a survey at shows that 63 percent of couples are staying home for Valentine's Day. Say what you will about this poll, which was conducted online and surveyed some 3,000 folks. But these findings pose an interesting question: Do you plan to take your sweetie our for Valentine's Day, or will you just make it a Blockbuster sort of night with an extra dash of romance?

Many local restaurants are planning special Valentine's Day menus, but they often don't come cheap. So, maybe you'd rather leave the Valentine's Day dining for the romance rookies out there, and protect your wallet from V-Day price gouging and valet parking.

So, what are your plans for Valentine's Day dining? Leave a comment, and don't let cupid hit you on the way out.
