Isn't it romantic? They're a little hazy, but I can almost see them walk into Four Oaks Restaurant. I guess it's just my imagination, but she is smiling, telling him how happy she is to be here. "I chose it just for you," he is saying, holding out his arms in a gesture that gathers up the cool night air, the starlit sky, the trees out on the patio and the warm glow that illuminates these cozy walls. It is a gift. He says, "I know how much you love these country places." And so she does.

Did you know David Bowie put out an album this year? We're only 6½ months into 2013, but already it feels like an eternity since the glam-rock legend released "The Next Day," his first studio disc since 2003, back in March. (Blame "Yeezus. ") Perhaps that's why Bowie revealed Monday night that he'd made a music video for his song "Valentine's Day. " Even legends need a way into the entertainment-news cycle. PHOTOS: Concerts by The Times Like the tune itself -- a Beatlesque guitar-pop number with a lovely vocal from Bowie -- the "Valentine's Day" video is a fairly straightforward affair, certainly as compared to the higher-concept clips for earlier "Next Day" singles such as " Where Are We Now?

Looking for last-minute ideas for Valentine's Day? Let's start with dessert. Each of these treats comes together using only a handful of ingredients and no special equipment. I will warn you, two of them take a little time to set up: the lemon posset -- a pudding-like dessert -- needs chilling time, and the other, a frozen chocolate zabaglione, freezes like a creamy gelato. Hazelnut zabaglione: Try a sherry-based zabaglione, whisking in a moderately sweet oloroso with just a touch of hazelnut liqueur.

“Mad Men” is almost always more successful when it approaches Important Social Issues obliquely rather than head-on. Last year's “The Flood” was widely panned for its awkward and heavy-handed depiction of Martin Luther's King's assassination and its aftermath. In contrast, “A Day's Work” may be the smartest, most sensitive this show has ever been on the subject of race, mostly because on the surface it's not about race at all, but rather an almost farcical chain of events set off by a bouquet of flowers.

On Valentine's Day, there will be no chocolate gifts for young Aly Diabate. "I don't know what chocolate is," said Aly, who was forced into slavery at age 11 to harvest cocoa beans in Ivory Coast. Aly's ignorance of chocolate is forgivable. Like tens of thousands of other child slaves on cocoa farms in Ivory Coast, he subsists on a diet of corn paste and bananas. Less forgivable is the fact that chocolate lovers in the West have been kept in the dark about these harsh realities.

It was a great weekend for low-budget love and not so great for big-budget scares. Romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" dominated the box office with a record-setting $66.9 million take over the long Presidents Day weekend, according to an estimate from distributor Warner Bros., while big-budget horror remake "The Wolfman" generated a so-so $36.5 million. "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief," based on the popular kids' book series, opened to a fairly good $38.8 million in the U.S. and Canada.

Director Garry Marshall returned to a tried-and-true-formula -- the all-star cast vehicle -- with his latest film. As in the past, the formula paid off handsomely: The romantic comedy "Valentine's Day," featuring Julia Roberts, her niece Emma Roberts, Shirley MacLaine, Anne Hathaway and more in a stellar lineup, took in a studio-estimated $52.4 million from Friday through Sunday in the U.S. and Canada. Last Valentine's Day, audiences grooved to another romantic comedy, "He's Just Not That Into You."
