The season of love is upon us. Cupid decals are cluttering store windows, Fry's Food Stores have ordered so many red roses and oversize teddy bears that they open special tents to house it all in the parking lots, and any type of candy that can be heart-shaped, will be heart-shaped. Whether or not cupid has struck you with his arrow, we've compiled the best breakfasts, dinners and activities in the Valley to keep you entertained and well-fed on the most romantic day of the year.

It’s that time of year: Valentine’s Day has come back to taunt the lonely once again. If you don’t have a significant other, don’t fret. You can chalk the entire “holiday” up to a capitalist marketing scheme deployed by greeting card manufacturers and chocolate vendors and blissfully (née bitterly) ignore it until February 15 rolls around, thanks to a cache of activities for members of the Lonely Hearts club happening around the Valley. We are lonely no more!

Love shows itself in grand gestures of chocolate-filled hearts and massive teddy bears but more often it’s present in the everyday stuff, like emptying the dishwasher unprompted. And while lifelong love is built mainly on the latter, it can’t hurt to indulge in over-the-top romance every so often, especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner.

That’s where AJ’s Fine Foods come in.
