Valentine's Day Planning

Chicago: For the Love of ChocolateFeb 10, tickets $95 per person at

Life is like a box of chocolates -- you never know if you'll ever have sex again. Hedge your bets with a night of Candyland-ish romance including chocoholic sculptures, cacao-couture, and plenty of other sticky fun perfect for all but the most diabetic lady. As a nice-guy bonus, the event raises money for inner-city kids with culinary aspirations possibly grown out of subway M&M peddling

Nationwide: Tom Jones (or Robert Goulet)Prices available by contacting

StarLink Productions can arrange an intimate concert with just about any crooner you'd see on stage at The Nugget -- from Tom "Its Not Unusual" Jones, to Robert "Just Don't Bite It" Goulet, to the sadder-than-an-E!-True-Hollywood-Story men who make a living impersonating them. $50,000 and up for an evening of TJ is a hefty fee, but much less than the legal bills from the time you kidnapped him

Palm Springs, CA: Sunrise Balloon Rides$569 with overnight stay; book at

Beautiful country views, a champagne toast, and the semi-sexual fear of death... Sunrise's package includes a night at a rustic local inn, plus 60-to-75 minutes soaring over Temecula Wine Country and drinking bubbly out of souvenir flutes that you'll later hurl into the Temecula Wine Country.
