Nothing says “romance” like a sack of onion rings.

Per their annual tradition, White Castle has begun taking reservations for Valentine’s Day dinner. This will be the 25th year that the burger chain has offered table-service at select restaurants around the country for the holiday.

The restaurant’s iconic sliders will be the centerpiece of the menu, which also includes Shrimp Nibblers, Strawberry and Cream Waffles and other “noteworthy menu items.” Guests will be able to choose from four different $9.95 Valentine’s Day meals to be shared between couples.

Unlike during normal business hours, customers order while seated at their tables, eat on tables with tablecloths and must call to make reservations in advance.

If you haven’t made date plans, you should make your reservations ASAPthe reservations are already getting snatched up.

“Every year, reservations fill up quickly at many locations,” vice president of White Castle Jamie Richardson said in a press release. “We encourage Cravers everywhere to contact us as soon as possible to ensure they get a table. Many people don’t realize how popular Valentine’s Day at White Castle is until they experience it for themselves. And love doesn’t stop with Valentine’s Day – we have couples who will actually marry in White Castles later this year.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
