We avoid the crowds on St. Valentine’s Day, but for the past 20 or so years we have marked the event with slabs of Baby Backs (Honey Carolina's) at Tony Roma’s. There is something special about those ribs, Kathleen always says, they just fall off the bone. Whatever.
The last Tony Roma’s in Minnesota is at the Mall of America, so there we were today in the best parking spot at Macy’s, getting ready for our treat.
The parking permit is good until August, we hope to stop using it before then. . . but it's awfully nice!
