Chances are, dinner at a nice eatery will be part of your V-Day plans. For those who are hungry and/or in love, our friends at the Ohio Restaurant Association shared a few tidbits you can chew on this week:

* Valentine's Day is the second most popular day of the year to dine out. More than one-quarter of Americans dine out on Valentine's Day. The most popular occasion for dining out is Mother's Day.

* More than 40 percent of individuals between the ages of 25 and 34 reported dining out on the previous February 14, more than any other age group.

* According to Association research, those who dine out on Valentine's Day spend on average more than $60.

... and I'm sure every penny will be worth it.
