Don't lick the walls...

Buy your honey a box of Godiva chocolates for Valentine's Day this year and you may just end up with a golden ticket for a night at Manhattan's Bryant Park hotel. The kicker? An all-chocolate room, complete with furniture, artwork and fixtures made out in Godiva decadence.

Admire the Gustav Klimt or Jackson Pollock-inspired chocolate "paintings" or open the books filled with chocolates instead of paper pages. Plunk yourself down on the sofa and munch on the chocolate sides or (dare we even suggest?) lick the chocolate walls.

With the chocolate room there come a few rules: no lighting of the chocolate fireplace or the chocolate candles. One is also discouraged from sitting in the easy chairs unless you want to end up with a chocolate covered ass. A small price to pay in the grand scheme of things.

Well, someone out there will be getting lucky this February 14th. I will do what I usually do on Valentine's Day: stay in to avoid the crowds of oggly couples and wait for the after V-Day chocolate sales. Because in my opinion, chocolate tastes just as good (if not better!) when it's 50% off.
