What was your favorite Valentine's Day ever, and what did you eat? We want to know!

Far be it from us to be biased in favor of happy love and couple-y bliss this Valentine's. Our favorite Valentine's ever was spent with a pack of fifty friends, jammed into our post-college dwelling, with a full-on Anti-Valentine's dance party.

We replaced every light bulb with a red or pink bulb; there were blacklights; there were Star Wars valentines; there was a piñata. We had the table packed with chips and gross-out red-colored foods. There was an anti-Valentine's cake...

We even had the Love Calculator open on the house computer and all our buddies typed in their names. It was the best party we ever threw - we even had gate crashers. Our friends, a perfectly photogenic and recently engaged couple, broke in for a few minutes, holding hands until they got bounced out under the no-couples-allowed rule.

Great, post-college fun, and the food matched: slightly tacky, slightly tongue-in-cheek candy, with popcorn, cake, strawberries dipped in chocolate, and other classic party foods.

What are you doing this Valentine's, and how does it stack up to your favorite Valentine's Day - whether that be campy, silly, romantic, intense, or just fun? And how did the food play in?
