Baton Rouge is always nice.

30 bucks can get you a huge ass meal of chicken and ribs with fries.
25 bucks can get her Chicken & Shrimps. Order a bottle of wine for another 30 if you'd like.

100 bucks with taxes
10 - 15 dollar tip if desired

...you dont need to worry...all the expensive and nice places are booked :)


for a last resort you can always go to Maxim at Finch and Lesile :lol:



btw...you should have asked us what we think about promise rings...big waste of money since if you are serious...you'll be getting an engagement ring...and the promise ring will just sit in the drawer.

here are two events you can't cheap out: valentine's & weddings -- do so at your peril and you'll hear it for the rest of your life (or 2 weeks before you guys break up and even then all her friends will know about you through gossip).

i would book a restaurant now. even if it's family owned, you should ensure you have a space. choose between giving flowers & dinner if you can't do both. a good dinner with one rose is better than handing $70 roses and hearing her say, "where are you taking me tonight?" :lol: :lol: :lol:

make it a surprise, drop hints, make her feel special and important in your life, this doesn't cost a penny. pay attention and don't mention money. don't. there are many places for under $100/couple. try the latin restaurants along college street because dinner, music & dancing are inclusive (but phone today to make sure you can get in). she'll brag to her girls about your moves...

Tuyen (Yonge/Sheppard) is kind of expensive.
