Cast Your Vote: Valentine’s Day in Chicago

Valentine’s Day is on Friday this year, so you will have the chance to celebrate a day of perpetual expectation and disappointment for the entire weekend!

Which of these two Chicago experiences get your vote? Do you prefer a table for two? Or twenty-two?
