Looking for a Valentine’s Day special meal that’s easy on the wallet to enjoy with a special someone?  We’ve gathered a list of some attractive deals that should fit the bill quite nicely.

The Sunrise Café at the Palms should surely put a smile on your sweetheart’s face and still keep you in the black.  A Valentine’s Day special is being offered that includes your choice of an appetizer, (mini-lobster thermidor or exotic greens with Dungeness crab) and an entrée of Mesquite broiled veal tenderloin. A heart-shaped chocolate cake with raspberry filling and a choice of coffee or tea is included for only $13.99 per person.  Serving hours will be from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.  If you might prefer just a cake for an at home celebration, the Palms bakery is preparing heart-shaped chocolate-filled cakes for $14.95.  Best to order ahead of time and pick them up beginning February 13.

For a little more intimate celebration at the Palms, try Little Buddha. All ladies will be receiving chocolates and flowers, and a complimentary glass of champagne is included with all meals. Valentine Day specials begin at $22 or you can select from the regular menu too. Reservations are strongly recommended wherever they are accepted, especially on a day like Valentine’s Day!

Another romantic choice for the holiday would be the Canal Street at the Orleans.  All couples will receive a complimentary bottle of champagne on Valentine’s Day with the purchase of two entrées.

At the Fiestas (Rancho or Henderson) you can enjoy a complete dining experience at the Baja Beach Café on Valentine’s Day. Try the one pound bone-in New York Strip Steak with your choice of soup or salad and strawberry shortcake for dessert for only $12.99 per person.  Or you can enjoy the Asian Combination Platter that includes Black Pepper Shrimp with asparagus tips served with a cup of soup, egg roll and fried rice for the same price.  The serving hours will be from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. 

Of course, you can still enjoy the round the clock special at Castaways Pelican Rock Café featuring “Steaks & Brews for Two!”  In recent weeks the price has gone up a buck, but it’s still hard to beat two complete 18 oz T-Bone steak dinners and a bucket of four beers only $12.95.

On President’s Day, Monday, February 17, Careful Kitty’s Café at the El Cortez will be hosting another special buffet. This time the theme is seafood. Cost is $9.95 per person; the serving hours will be from 12 noon to 9:00 p.m.

Until next week”¦Fill your plate with food, your heart with love and your wallet with jackpots!  “Eat well, play well, stay well!”
