It's Cupid's birthday! Valentine's Day is Cupid's birthday, right? Between the Olympics, National Pizza Day, the Super Bowl, and Valentine's Day over a six-day run, it's hard to keep things straight. 

Let's go with Cupid's birthday. While he floats around in his birthday suit, covering his nethers with whatever happens to be handy--leaves, arrows, well-placed foods--you can celebrate another turn around the sun for the little feller with some good food. Restaurants around the country aren't only preparing to host a flood of couples, they're also offering deals that anyone can use, whether or not you recognize Valentine's Day. You'll find deals at places like Qdoba, Popeyes, Wendy's, Domino's Pizza, and a whole lot of other spots.
