Wait a minute! I didn't see any pictures of anybody consummating their passion and love in the White Castle! (Aren't there other kinds of boards for that?)

I figured I'd better check in on this thread, just so you all know I'm not mad at Jason or anything. We've had some V-day doozies in the past, and frankly they are rarely worth the hassle. This was silly and fun. We both thought they could have upped the kitch with more Valentines decorations and maybe a Valentine themed menu item (besides a sack of burgers). They used to have a Roma Burger (with a slice of roma tomato), or how about a pizza burger, cheese and sauce are easy enough to add. But it was fun and all the women were giggling, most of the men we spoke with did it as a surprise to their ladies, with something else planned for afterward. I kept the sliders to a minimum, so as to better enjoy some greens at C46 afterwards. The fish nibblers are one of their better offerings, very fresh and crisp, with chopped parsley in the coating.

Honestly, I think it was very nice (in the best sense of the word) for White Castle to put together something like this, and in the end it really doesn't matter how "fancy" something is, it matters if you enjoy it. And obviously it was fun and the food was good. Can't beat that, really. :wink:

Thanks. That was the hardest I've ever laughed at an eGullet post.

Brilliant shot. But why does it remind me of a promo photo for the latest teen-demographic TV sitcom? :laugh:

We've eaten at White Castle many times before, but would you believe my wife got sick a few hours after we got home? Then she didn't think the whole thing was so funny. I had a few beers while waiting for her to get home before we went, so I can only chalk it up to being her first time eating White Castle burgers without first drinking.

In reading some of the comments about other WC's V-days, I feel a little jipped. Some locations offered free appetizers and/or sparkling cider! We did get the polaroid pic though, and a little bag of chocolates at the end.

Well Rachel, my Valentine's Day this year can be summarized by, "I got a rock."

That really looked like a lot of fun. Very clever and tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek by the company. I miss White Castles that aren't from the frozen food section.

BRILLIANT!!!

By total coincidence, my husband and I spent Valentine's Day evening re-watching "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle". Must be some sort of harmonic convergence made us all White Castley.

Oh. My.

And I was only kidding about the chocolates! This is fabulous!!!

Rachel and Jason, I now have the irreplaceable vision of sweet nothings by White Castle-light. I'm not sure if I find that incredibly endearing or horrifically frightening. :biggrin:

Bravo to you both for doing something so fun. Tho' I'm wondering what motivated the exchange students to be there...
