For the Love of Lucy

I was going to post about this next week when I give y'all a guide of what to do down the shore whether you love cupid or want to stab him with his own arrow -- but since the deadline for reservations is this Friday, I have to share now.

Want to impress your sweetheart in pachyderm proportions this Valentine's Day? You can have dinner inside Lucy the Elephant.

That's right -- Margate's big wooden elephant, which literally has a window in her butt (they call it a "pane in her butt," which I think is hysterical), is host to a mega luxe, mega romantic Valentine's Day dinner deal. They offer two seatings with spots for 20 couples at each seating. Dinner includes appetizer, salad, soup, choice of entree, starch and vegetable, plus dessert and coffee. Ladies are given a long stem rose, and the gents get a bag of peanuts and, if the weather's good, each couple can do a champagne toast from Lucy's howdah (that thing on her back where you can look over the island).

The catch? It ain't cheap. The per couple cost is $245 plus $40 gratuity plus $17.15 for taxes -- but part of the cost is tax deductible since this is a Lucy fundraiser.

For all the details, plus a menu and spot to make your reservation, go to www.lucytheelephant.org.

I will have a more detailed "Your Shore Weekend" in regards to Valentine's day next week, so stay tuned...

It is expensive, but it's such a cool idea. - John

OK, that's really thinking outside the box of chocolates. Or the vase of flowers. Or the cheesy themed hotel room.
