Winning Valentine's Day | Hen House Linens

We have three men friends that have figured out how to win Valentine's Day.  Just like the 1993 NCAA men's basketball national champs, these boys have got game. (I am a Tarheel afterall.)  Dedication, love of the game AND adoration for their #1 fans...

The strategy?  Teamwork.  The guys plan a dinner party for all three families on or close to Valentine's Day.  They plan, shop, prepare, cook, serve + clean.  It's not a novelty act and each man is as nimble a player in the kitchen as he is in his man cave. Regardless, there is something incredibly dear about dudes making and not faking an effort to gather the people they love around the table.  And also, there is usually a good basketball game on.

We love when love wins!
