The way to destroy Valentine's Day romance


It's Valentine's Day and you ae ready to pop the question. 

You've enjoyed a romantic three-course restaurant dinner and a couple of glasses of wine. The mood is right. 

You lock eyes with your loved one and are suddenly aware that your server is hovering. 

"Excuse me guys, but you've exceeded your two-hour time slot. You'll have to leave now."

Limited-time slots in eateries are the new normal, but to insist on them on a night when romance is in the air just doesn't seem right. 

Particularly when loving couples are already being charged inflated prices for "special menus" just because the date in February 14. 

But that doesn't worry the Hyatt Regency Sydney: which sent out a press release saying the hotel has "lot's to love this Valentine's Day".

Not only do they not know how to use an apostrophe, they apparently don't like romance much either.

Here is one of their offerings: a Valentine's Day Seafood Dinner at Sailmaker Restaurant:

"Treat your date to Sydney's most indulgent and sustainable seafood experience at Hyatt Regency Sydney's Sailmaker Restaurant, with an unforgettable evening of wining and dining.

"Enjoy a glass on [I think they mean of] premium sparkling on arrival, then tantalise your tastebuds with an elevated three-course seafood dinner featuring seasonal produce from local suppliers that is fresh, flavourful and sustainable. To finish your evening, a sweets trolley will see Valentines-inspired desserts prepared and served tableside.

"Wednesday 14 February from 6pm-9:30pm (2 hour sitting). $99 per person."

We've got your $200+. Get out. We need your table.
