Embarrass Your True Love

Because if the whole office doesn’t know about your undying affection, then what’s the point? Order up a legit barbershop quartet. The Golf Capital Chorus will deliver a red rose, a box of candy and a card between the hours of9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Feb. 13 and 14. They sing up to two songs, so your little snuggle muffin’s co-workers will have plenty of time to whip out their phones. It’s the best $50 you’ll spend this year. To order, call Dick Curl at 910-215-9796 or email him at dickcurl@nc.rr.com.

Scott’s Table: Make your relationship status ofishal with the arctic char, below. The char is poached in duck fat, topped with crispy potatoes and served with spinach almond puree, mushroom confit and a red wine reduction. Get it along with soup or salad, and an appetizer, for $44.
