What Could Be More Romantic than Dinner in a Castle?


By Cari Martens

Once again this year White Castle will serve as the romantic setting for Valentine’s couples to share their undying love for one another as well as their passion for sliders.

The venerable hamburger chain is now taking reservations for its Valentine’s Day ‘steamy candlelight dinner’ which includes 10 sizzling sliders, fries and two 21-ounce sodas for $10.49. Which, as the promotion copy notes, leaves ‘plenty of room in the budget for flowers, candy and entertainment.’

It’s a by-reservation-only affair. Participating restaurants are closed to those who haven’t reserved a table. Restaurants will be decorated in Valentine décor, and the staff will upload a photo of your ‘romantic rendezvous’ to the White Castle web site.

In 2009, nearly 4,000 couples at 157 White Castle locations celebrated Cupid Day by lovingly looking into each others’ eyes and wolfing down five burgers each (or, more probably, the male of the species ate a half dozen or more).

White Castle has been promoting this event every year since 1991, so next year will be the 20th anniversary. True love never dies…and a slider lasts forever (or seemingly).

You can visit the White Castle web site to find the Valentine Reservation Hotline number for the location in your area.
