Roses are red, violets are blue

Happy Valentine's Day.
For those of you living in Richmond, you are so lucky. The RVA was recently named the 6th most romantic city in the U.S.

OpenTable’s most romantic cities index was calculated using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated “romantic” according to OpenTable diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day in 2016.

Ironically,no Richmond restaurant made it on a list, also compiled by Open Table, of the “most romantic restaurants in America.” Ten restaurants throughout Virginia did, though.

Alexander’s – Roanoke, Virginia
Bistro L’Hermitage – Woodbridge, Virginia
Byrd and Baldwin Bros. Steakhouse – Norfolk, Virginia
Cafe Renaissance – Vienna, Virginia
Fleurie – Charlottesville, Virginia
The Goodstone Inn & Estate Restaurant – Middleburg, Virginia
The Inn at Little Washington – Washington, Virginia
Joshua Wilton House – Harrisonburg, Virginia
Chez François – Great Falls, Virginia
Vintage Tavern – Suffolk, Virginia

And while you may think that New York or San Francisco were the most romantic cities, the honor goes to ..... Oklahoma City. Sometimes these data studies just don't make much sense.
