Going Dutch

Posted February 16, 2009 11:54 a.m. EST

Cindy and I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner at Nana’s in Durham. Chef Scott Howell can flat out cook a special multi course meal. Ours included lobster risotto and tenderloin with all sorts of interesting side courses and a fabulous triple dessert.   Every bite was a special treat. It was an expensive evening but well worth it.

The young couple to my left went Dutch. I was somewhat surprised when the lady pulled out her credit card as did the young man after asking the waiting staff to split the check. What are your thoughts about going Dutch on Valentine’s? Is this unusual? I really wanted to ask them but it was really none of my business.

What about your Valentine’s Day dinner? What did you do and how did it go? Please share.
