Valentine's Day is the most romantic day of the year. We know this because Hallmark tells us so.
Seriously, though. We think there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a holiday devoted to lovebirds. After all, there's nothing better than romance, happiness, and deciding to spend the rest of your life with that special someone.
Pollo Tropical thinks that too. In fact, they're having a gigantic event at their Margate location at 5425 W. Atlantic Blvd. on Friday, February 14 -- especially for lovebirds (who happen to like to eat chicken).
The Pollo Tropical Loves Margate: Sweetheart Dance and Deal party runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and features an on-site DJ playing love songs, a side-by-side surfing simulator, and a photographer to catch every tender, juicy (grilled?) moment.
Plus, the restaurant will provide a notary for couples who want to get married or renew their vows from 2 to 4 p.m.
This is real, folks, so if you're planning on getting married, you'll need to obtain a marriage license before Friday (not necessary for vow renewals). Couples who go through with the wedding can celebrate with a delicious lunch or dinner for two for $9.99.
Let's face it. Pollo Tropical is way better than catering hall chicken any day, so invite your entire family to the wedding, serve them a delish meal, and pocket the cash you'll save for a down payment on a condo. Because you know what's more romantic than having a big schmancy wedding? Real Estate (and a Tropi-Chop).
By the way, that two-for-one $9.99 meal is good for any two people on Valentine's Day -- even if you "chicken out" on the "forever ever" part.
