French fries are my Valentines, and that’s OK. Valentine’s Day can be a lovely holiday for sure. Poetry, candy, fancy dinners, red velvet cake on every menu, and expressions of true love are all things I can get behind; however, for those of us who may lean more toward the internet generated Singles Awareness Day, we may want something a bit more fun. Enter French Fry Fest, a spudtastic extravaganza where the starchy snacks are the main focus.
