FW Weekly: Valentine’s Day Mad Libs


I’ve been dreading this week’s column, because I don’t feel like writing a hacky, rehashed intro for this Hallmark-inspired holiday. This week, you can do the heavy lifting in our second ever Chow, Baby Mad Lib:

Valentine’s Day is coming soon, and your special [noun] deserves the very [adjective] evening on the [noun] that your budget allows. With the recent explosion in [plural noun] in our city, you’re sure to [verb] the right place to [verb] that special someone in your [noun]. 

The below list includes just a [pronoun] of my favorite [plural noun] that are sure to set the [noun] for some [adjective] baby-making. 

Clearfork fancy meat purveyor B&B Butchers (5212 Marathon Av, 817-737-5212) is continuing its tradition of offering a dine-in and takeout menu for Valentine’s Day. Select two of lobster bisque, Caesar salad, meatballs, and/or Chef Tommy’s bacon box (which is apparently not a euphemism); pick one of 20-ounce chateaubriand, 20-ounce beef Wellington, and two 10-ounce filets; and choose from your choice of two among chocolate cake, artisan cheeses, and/or New York cheesecake. Roasted Brussels sprouts, creamed spinach, and the house mac ’n’ cheese are all included, as are chocolate-covered strawberries. The cost is $130 per person, unless you’d like to throw in a flower arrangement and specialty box of chocolate, which will run you between $85 and $195 extra. Read More.
