Procrastinators, take heart: Prime time Valentine's Day reservations are still available

Tomorrow is a really special day of the year, when you will no doubt attempt to show how much you care about your significant other by showering him or her with gifts, Hallmark cards, roses, confections and maybe even some red and pink confetti. And if everyone plays their cards right, the most romantic evening of the year should end with some sort of wild, passionate tryst between the sheets. Win.

To seal the deal, though, you'll need a really solid dinner reservation because tantalizing morsels and the gentle buzz lent by sharing a bottle of wine really ups your chances at that endgame. And if you procrastinated, you're probably panicking right now. There are still plenty of tables available before 6 p.m. and after 9 p.m., after all, but that sort of makes it look like you waited until the last possible second and got stuck with whatever was available, thus upping your chances of a V-Day freeze out and lowering your chances of the post-dinner boink.

We're proponents of boinking. We hope you score. And that's why we've amassed a list of Denver restaurants suitable for Valentine-themed wooing that still have prime time reservations available. Just call us cupid.

Better get on it, though. These tables were available when we checked, but that doesn't guarantee you a reservation -- some fellow procrastinator may have already snatched it up.
