Fellas, ladies, and all of you sexy sons of bitches in between -- today's the big day! If you were hoping to get lucky after dinner this evening, there's no need to stay up all night. In fact, an evening full of longing stares and celebratory libations is bound to put you in the mood by the time you polish off that sexy, aphrodisiac-filled first course. Sometimes, a bathroom buggering is the only answer, and if you're going to make sex in public you might as well make it interesting. The following bar and restaurant bathrooms all offer something -- be it ambiance or amenities -- to make you creme fraiche your jeans. And because we refuse to discriminate against single folk, any of these options would work just as well for a solo go of things. But, you know...maybe don't masturbate in restaurant bathrooms.

Valentine's Day is stressful, and all the coordination, expectation, and overall hub-bub often put a damper on things. And right now, if you've yet to make a plan for the evening (or are in need of a back-up), you're likely feeling panic creep in. We got you. Here is a list of great V-Day events around the city that you can still book, some of which are worthy friend date destinations, too.
I dropped my list of the 10 best restaurants for break-ups in NYC earlier this week, and on Tuesday, I dished out a few tips for finding a break-up restaurant on The Ride Home with Pat Kiernan.

This time of year always brings out New York's mushy side when it comes to dining out: Which restaurants have the most romantic view? Which restaurants have the best decor? Which place has a wait staff I can trust who can keep my engagement ring on ice until I give the signal?

But what about restaurants for those who want to ditch their significant other before the day of love? For every adorable corner bistro packed to the brim on Valentine's Day in this city, there's an equally suitable setting for an unhappy ending. For those who can't bear to take their relationship to the next level and are ready to throw in the towel, here are 10 New York restaurants where breaking up isn't that hard to do.
Valentine's day is largely about sex, and sex, in primates, is largely about competition. And right now, if you haven't booked a table for Friday's day dinner, you've been bested by super-organized, type-A New Yorkers and devoted hopeless romantics, who booked every good seat in town a month ago.

There's something to be said for shelling out $100 plus per person for luxury ingredients and romance, but sometimes it's better to just eat at home, for a number of reasons. A) It's cost-effective and the economy sucks. B) You can control the setting and light as many candles and roses as you'd like. C) It's a shorter distance to lead your date from the dinner table into bed. However, cooking a huge, impressive meal...well that could just be a disaster.
Go balls-to-the-wall with your lovers favorite takout on V-Day.
While browsing online for Valentine's Day cookie options, I stumbled upon a Serious Eats post from 2010 in which Roasting Plant's cookies were crowned as the best chocolate chip cookies in New York City. I was skeptical. In fact, with Levain Bakery, Blue Ribbon Bakery Market, Milk & Cookies Bakery, and a branch of Birdbath as just some of its competition, I wasn't even sure it was the best cookie option on the West Side of Manhattan, much less the entire city.
