Get a Free Lobster Tail at Whole Foods Plus Valentine's Recipe

Courtesy of Whole Foods
With Valentine's Day just a couple of days away, you're probably scrambling to get reservations at one of the many places offering a romantic dinner for two priced at less than $100 per person.

Let's face it though, going on to dinner for Valentine's Day is overrated. The kitchen is more often than not trying to flip tables as fast as possible, wait times are obscene, the service is lackluster and the food is rarely the same as on a regular night.

The solution? Don't wait till after dinner to slip into something more comfortable. A home cooked meal; especially one that consists of a little surf and turf and ends with strawberry ice cream will impress your sweetheart more than any fancy restaurant dinner. To celebrate the love, all Whole Foods stores in Florida are offering a free lobster tail with the purchase of any dry-aged steak tomorrow and Friday, and the perfect herb roasted lobster and steak recipe to go with it.

Calling all avocado nuts. Whole Foods is offering a one-day special sale on the deliciously green fruit that's used as a vegetable -- $5 for five. That's a dollar each. The catch? It's for today only.

All Whole Foods Market stores in Florida are participating in this one day haas avocado event.

We've got your covered. Whole Foods also offers up some recipes for the bad boys - from salad, to salsa, and even catfish tacos. After the jump.

Miami Spice's prices -- three-course offerings at a low of $33 for dinner -- have garnered a lot of talk: the good, the best, and the misses.

But there are a few restaurants that have more than just Miami Spice up their promotional sleeve. Quattro Gastronomia, Lincoln Road's chic Italian eatery, for instance, offers Mangia Monday's. A regional tasting menu that took the restaurant to Piedmont and Napoli during the last two months has now landed in Sicily. What better way to start the week than with some Italian?
