Your 2014 Guide to Valentine's Day in Metro Phoenix

It's officially crunch time for Valentine's Day, but don't stress if you haven't found the perfect way to wow your significant other. We've compiled a list of the best dinner menus, restaurants, cocktails, beer, recipes, and treats for you in town that can get you on your way to the most romantic night of your life. Just don't delay the inevitable any longer or you'll likely be eating alone, which is okay, and we've included some events for you singles, too.

But if you're solo on Valentine's Day, Hula's Modern Tiki, Proof, and Culinary Dropout at The Yard have dining and imbibing options for singles. We've even compiled a list of the 10 dreamiest chefs in town for inspiration for those desperately seeking a culinary companion, but be warned: They aren't all single.
