White Castle is now taking Valentine’s Day reservations

The most commercialized and pointless of all the consumer holidays is right around the corner, and right on cue, White Castle is now taking reservations for its annual Valentine’s Day celebration, featuring actual hostesses, themed decor, and table service.

(Find a list of participating locations here; reservations can be made via OpenTable.)
