The Price of Love, What Valentine's Day in Erie Could Cost You
Valentine's Day is just a few days away and already local restaurants are running out of tables. Whether you're planning a romantic dinner for two or picking up some chocolate and flowers, it can add up.
Erie News Now stopped by a few popular places to see how much it could cost you.
Bistro 26 in Millcreek said all its reservations for February 14th are almost booked. If you're one of the people heading there on Thursday, the special is a four course meal for $60 per person.
"We try to plan and see what we sell a lot of throughout the year," said restaurant owner George Gourlias. "You get a salad, choice of soup, entree, dessert each and a complimentary toast of champagne."
At the Bayfront Grille located inside the Sheraton Hotel, manager Dan Pora said a dinner for two could add up to around $100.
Then there's the Valentine's Day roses.
At the Rose Floral Shop on Peach street you could spend anywhere from $5 for a single rose to $150 if you buy several dozen roses.
"We expect a lot of work that day and we'll have a lot of people here," owner John Kies said. "We're hoping to get everything on in a timely basis and we just do the best job we can."
