Nothing Says I Love You Like Valentine’s Dinner at Ikea

February 11th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Ok… wow. If ever there were a romantic opportunity to show your love on Valentine’s Day, this is it! Take your sweetie down into Red Hook for… Noooooo, not the amazing and romantic wonderful meal ate The Good Fork… but a meal that’s as processed as the pressed-board wood you find in one of their bookshelves… at Ikea!!! Yeah! From 5:30-8pm, grab a cafeteria tray for two and hop in line for a lil Love Salmon Wellington, Divine rice pilaf and some Sweetie-Baby carrots with Cha-Cha-chive sauce for $19.90. And, just to make your (cheap ass) date even better, Ikea’s going throw in a free bottle of non-alcoholic Magnum Sparkling Cider! But wait! You better bring a date! Because unless you’re a couple, you going to starve! Not, we’re sure they’ll feed you, but you’ll have to go for some meatballs and taters instead of the looooove dish. Oh, and apparently there’s three couple that are supposed to be on view in one of their illustrious bedroom suites, being served breakfast in bed by poor Ikea employees. But that’s in the morning and you’ll have to bring your own treats to throw at them. On the other hand, as a media stunt, this is genius.

    Sounds like a square meal. And at least there’s a great view.

    I think this is absolutely lovely of Ikea to come-up with this most romantic of idea’s, infact, truth be told, nothing could be Sweder!
