That time of year is upon us again! Valentine's Day! If you have a sweetheart, but aren't sure where to take him or her for the evening, perhaps one of these establishments out of the romance comics would make a nice date spot!

comfort zone at the Mexican Hat!

Perhaps some pasta at
Wet Noodle?

Seafood... pizza... dancing?!

  1. I can't resist a place with the name "The Electric Brain!"

    Heart Throbs # 131 art is definitely by George Tuska.

    Happy V-Day, Jacque!

  2. I don't know about that Wet Noodle place. Let's check Yelp! and see if it has a good rating.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. Why are they so much cooler-sounding than the names of the places we really eat at?
