Nothing says I love you like a truly extravagant gift. The Mardi Gras Casino (831 N. Federal Hwy., Hallandale Beach) wants to extend the sentiment your way when it gives away a sleek, new Corvette on Thursday at 10 p.m. All you have to do is show up, register, and pray to the engine gods and who knows? -- you might get lucky, really lucky, on Valentines day.

Say It With Food
There are already too many choices. Tux or tank top? Flowers or jelly club membership? Romantic comedy or Skinamax? Where you dine should be the least of your worries. At Lolas (2032 Harrison St., Hollywood) you cant make a poor decision: tonights three course meal offers tantalizing temptations like Salmon Tartar tossed in sesame-lemon vinaigrette and jalapeno chili oil. Or Coca-Cola Barbeque beef ribs, slow roasted for so long that their good stuff falls off the bones as you try to lift them. Top the whole thing off with warm chocolate truffle cake, gently layered with Amarena cherries and whipped cream. With nearly 60 possible combinations among the appetizer, entrée, and dessert choices available on Lolas special prix fix menu, whichever you select will taste amazing. But you might want to rethink the tank top. You must RSVP; call 954-927-9851.
Punch Drunk Love
You like your drinks with a little something extra, so dont spend the most romantic night of the year sipping Mad Dog. Especially when you could be knocking back cup after cup of amore at La Bamba Restaurant (5452 W. Sample Rd., Coconut Creek). The restaurant has partnered with Agavero Tequila company and created a love potion called the pumpkin shooter (part pomegranate vodka, part Agavero Tequila, and part lemonade). See, Agavero Tequila is distilled from one of natures oldest aphrodisiacs, the damiana flower, so enjoy sharing a few with your main enchilada.
