So, your mate made it crystal clear last night that take-out and a House of Cards marathon isn’t going to cut the mustard for Valentine’s Day. (Uh-oh.)

Considering the weather, we’re guessing there may also be quite a few cancellations. A call to your favorite date-night spot might turn up some last-minute availability that will save your sorry skin.

But in case you want a (semi-) sure thing, we’ve rounded up some places that still had Valentine’s Day dinner reservations available as of yesterday afternoon. You may have to make do with the blue-hair or night-owl time slots, but desperate times call for desperate measures. And judging from the list below, the situation isn't as dire as one might think.
