Don’t stop at Kroger for last-minute flowers: Here’s your Valentine’s restaurant/gift guide

My friend and former roommate once bragged about watching “The Matrix” (1999) alone by candlelight for Valentine’s Day. Two years later he was practically sobbing as he scrubbed the bathtub in the one bathroom house he shared with two other dudes in preparation for his Valentine’s date. That relationship ended and that house on Capitol Avenue near UAMS was demolished.

Whether you’re going on a date with yourself or planning one with a special someone or ignoring this staged romantic holiday altogether, we’re here for ideas if a last minute trip to Walgreen’s isn’t going to cut it.
