DES MOINES, Iowa — This Friday the 13th could have some luck in it because it also serves as a last-minute reminder that Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Owner of Doherty’s Flowers Robyn Sloan says Valentine’s Day may be on Saturday, but Friday will be her busiest day. “I think it’s partly a public display of how much their loved. And they like to share it with their co-workers,” said Sloan.
If you haven’t made plans yet for Valentine’s Day it’s not too late, but you’re definitely cutting it close. You can still send out flowers today, but you may be better off making a personal delivery. Sloan says she expects her store to be swamped by noon on Friday. Unfortunately most restaurants are booked for the weekend. If you haven’t made your reservations yet, tickets are still available at some of the local comedy clubs and wineries.
