Things to do for February 09, 2012

The Peninsula Rewards Your Generosity
If you’re going to spring for dinner for the whole table (no, no—you insist), the least someone could do for you is, well, pick up the tab. In this buy-four-get-one-gratis deal at the Lobby, the Peninsula does just that. Well, if they insist...
Your Valentine’s Day shopping list isn’t long, but every item is crucial. So Pastoral put together a package for two with just the essentials: sturgeon caviar, triple cream cheese, toast points and bubbly. It doubles as a roadside assistance kit.
