Valentine's Day Bonus Episode

Just a little bonus episode we put together for those of you who love Valentine’s and those of you who loathe it.

If you are a new listener to Common Grounds, we would love to hear from you.  Please visit our website and let us know what you think about this and previous episodes!

In this episode, we discuss:
  • The history of Valentine’s Day and the astronomical amount of money people spend on the holiday each year.
  • The dark history of St. Valentine and the less-than-cute mythology of Cupid.
  • Specials on tap at local restaurants and campus events to help you celebrate.
  • Alternative ways to celebrate the holiday if you’re just not that into all the romance.
