BarFly's Review of Valentine's
Valentine’s does not advertise. The lightly stained plywood furniture in the Old Town bar’s front room speaks more to design than any apparent convenience, the often-oversized art on the wall remains tastefully mute, and ordering from the unencouraged food menu makes you part of an in-house joke. In the tiny Ankeny alleyway between Berbati’s and the Oyster Bar the sign for Valentine’s is pointedly hard to find, as is the bar.
On occasional Sundays there are secret upscale dinners, served by two of the bartenders to appreciative regulars. On Mondays and Tuesdays there is music, but it only sometimes makes its way into the papers. Upstairs—up stairs that are mostly obscure—the chairs are mismatched. Almost everyone is a regular, if they are there at all; the bar’s patrons and tenders are a mirroring reassurance to the clientele of mostly over-27 self-proclaimed artists and actual rockstars and ubiquitous hairdressers from the nearby salons.
What it remains is an obscure and almost unpublic comfort. It is more living room than bar, assuming one’s living room is full of infused whiskeys and obscure Greek or Turkish liquors: Valentine’s is where hipsters go when they are too tired to dance

Ha. haha. it's a bar review, and barfly is awesome. Keep up the great reviews, and please please keep offending dickholes so they'll not drop by anymore.
You really need to pull that giant stick out of your ass. Hope every time you go out now you are seated next to a squalling baby. You'll be reaching for a coat hanger before long.
I think whoever wrote the review for Valentines should suck it. "Crotch fruit you should have aborted"-reaallly? You are a crotchfruit you fuck-and you should have been aborted. We are all crotchfruit my friends. I will not support barf lie in the future due to this ridiculous "review".
Hey guy-Don't worry about bean dip and stop being a dipshit. This place is off the hook! Stop comparing everything to San Fransisco... I'm sure the gay dudes are better there and they arf down rice-a-roni like it's going out...
Everytime I've been to Valentine's it's been pleasant as fuck. My Name is Brandon and I endorse this place.
coke head hipsters .... smells like haruoka lovers perfume mixed with a little Aveeda.The exact places we avoided in SF....90s attire...lots of purple and maroon.
