Thank you, Atlanta Journal Constitution. This article tells of how Atlanta area Waffle Houses are now taking reservations for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s an excerpt:
“…Pink signs at participating locations invite customers to “get scattered, smothered and covered” in romance. Reservations are encouraged.
The idea originated with Calvin Stokesbary, a division manager for the Norcross-based chain. The trick was how to make a sunny-side-up diner seem more cozy and intimate for the big evening.
At the first unit last year, on Jones Bridge Road in Johns Creek, each booth got a red or white tablecloth and a candle. White globe lights were covered in red paper to give the place a rosy glow. The jukebox was unplugged and replaced with CDs of gauzy music.”
I guess the old adage is true: It’s not where you go, it’s who you’re with.
