Today

JUST A REMINDER: We want to be here for you, so before we suggest things to do today, the first thing you should do is to make sure you've covered your bases on Valentine's Day. Love may not be all about chocolate and flowers, but it's not a bad place to start. If you're thinking more along the lines of a romantic dinner out, best make those reservations quickly because many popular spots are already filling up. A fast-food drive-through just isn't going to cut it.
