Love the Day
Valentine's Day can cause a lot of pressure. You've got to choose from food, flowers and entertainment, all the while keeping in mind what your sweetie wants. To that end, we're offering up a quick list of sweet -- literally -- and romantic V-Day ideas that won't bust anybody's wallet. Nothing says romance like classical music, so take your date over to the Menil Collection for a concert of Mozart variations as part of Da Camera's MozartNOW Festival (7:30 p.m., 1515 Sul Ross, www.dacamera.com; $30). After that, roll over to Tila's Restaurante and Bar (1111 South Shepherd, 713-522-7654) for specials of filet mignon, crab empanadas and tres leches. Or, if you're after more traditional V-Day fare, head to Ral's CafÃ© Bistro (1330-D Wirt, 713-688-7257), where guests will receive free champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries and choose from a special Valentine's Day menu.
