Valentine's day is great in theory if you have an unlimited budget. All of the uber romantic Valentine's day gestures that we've grown accustomed to on television are also uber expensive and there seems to be s disconnect between reality and reality TV. Yes, we would love to take our Valentine on a helicopter ride around downtown Boise on the way to an extravagant rooftop dinner. Ruth Chris Steakhouse and Chandlers are amazing choices for Valentine's dinner but if you they're not realistic options don't worry because there are way more affordable options that can be a lot of fun. Fancy and fun are two different things but at the end of the day if you're relationship is based on material things, this is the wrong blog to be reading. For everyone else check out this cool list that ktvb published of Valentine's Day food deals.

Some of the offers are only valid at participating locations, so be sure to check with your local locations just to be safe before showing up.
