"You're doing WHAT for Valentine's Day?" - Valley News Live - KVLY/KXJB - Fargo/Grand Forks

"You're doing WHAT for Valentine's Day?"

Posted: Updated:

It's Feb. 14, Valentine's Day, and many are celebrating their sweethearts with staples like flowers, cards or jewelry.

But there are some out there who have decided to celebrate the day of love in an unconventional way- thinking outside the box of chocolates.

Today at Qdoba Mexican Grill it's buy one, get one for anyone who is willing to kiss for the cashier.

"I mean this is like the perfect date for us for Valentine's Day lunch. I got a burrito, he got a deal, we got to kiss!" says Marie Ackerman, eating with her husband.

For some, business travel has brought them far from home on this Valentine's Day, like Kevin and Sheryl Lowe from Tennessee. They're spending the day at West Acres Mall in Fargo.

"I didn't want to leave my wife at home on Valentine's Day, so I brought her to "Cabo LaFargo" to do some sightseeing and shopping," says husband Kevin Lowe, laughing.

We see a lot of couples out on this holiday, but there are still those embracing the single life, including some Minnesota State University Moorhead students who just out as a group of friends.

"Valentine's Day is kind of overrated in a way, 'cause it's just all couples non-stop, but you can hang out with a group of friends and celebrate it and enjoy being single," says Shelbie Brown.

West Acres Mall will be open until 9:00 in the evening on Valentine's Day and it takes someone to run all these stores- for that, you can thank people like Aundrea Meier.

"It's nice to give other people a chance to spend the holiday, ya know, at work so they can have holiday together," she says.

For some, it's just Friday, Feb. 14.

"Pretty much just an every day Friday for me. Every week I basically relax on Fridays and spend a lot of my time at home watching movies and doing the college homework for the week," says Ali Belfiore
