A $10,000 Valentine's date

An indecent proposal – or a flight of fancy I remember a Valentine's date in my early 20s when I was so besotted that I splurged for my intended with a box of Licorice All Sorts – and a bottle of Mateus. I was convinced it was love for life. By spring I was dropped like an over-boiled Easter Egg. The romance expired long before the over-drawn credit card I used to pay for the romantic gifts. Such is the folly of youth. But, I now realize such indulgences in the name of love aren't just for the love-struck youth. Consider the Valentine's Day options in Miami. Be you rich man or poor man, Miami certainly doesn't come up short with respect to romantic vacation getaways: the city's Art Deco touches, the Cuban food, the vibe, South Beach, the glam fashions, the live music. There are so many diversions in Miami to make it a truly romantic escape. For instance, for a basic $39.99, you could enjoy a champagne-inspired meal followed by a Godiva dessert (that's per person) at the Armillary Grill at the Hotel InterContinental. Nothing to sneeze at, to be sure. But for $10,000 (that's a whole lot of Mateus wine and Licorice All Sorts in my book) you and your partner could indulge in  The Proposal Package at the well-appointed Gale South Beach Boutique Hotel. The property is gorgeous. See for yourself. South Gale Hotel, Miami $10,000 Valentine Date South Gale Beach Hotel South Gale Beach Hotel
