Pry open a box of candies, the kind of confections that arrive in a box shaped like a heart or Cupid or a rose, and you'll likely first search out the sweet that has a little extra on top.
We're talking about the chocolate laden with caramel or sea salt, the treat with something extra.
If how you choose a piece of candy is how you choose your Valentine's night outing, be gladdened, for there is a place that is drizzling a little something sweet atop the whole fancy-dinner-out scene.

It's the Queen Mary, which, for sure, will be offering a sumptuous four-course dinner on Friday, Feb. 14. But also part of the night? Playful doings happening beyond the plate, before an audience seeking a show to complement their supper.
For the Long Beach ocean-liner's My Vintage Valentine's Dinner Show is that extra something, with charm to spare. Burlesque dancing is one fabulous feature, as are can-can performers, artists who are ready to give the holiday event an added helping of ohh, la, and la.
Acrobatics, too, are part of the get-gussied evening, which is focusing on the themes of "Romance" and "Classic Glamour."
Taking a peek at the menu? A tomato Caprese salad begins the meal, followed by "an intermezzo Champagne sorbet to clear the palate."
There are a few choices for your entrée, including pan-roasted sea bass or grilled filet mignon, as well as a vegetarian pick.
The dessert course, of course, seems to shine brightest on Valentine's Day, above all other holidays, and the event will rise to the adorable occasion with a red velvet cake that is, yes, heart-shaped.
There are two seatings, if you and your paramour want to stroll the ship, in a cozy-up fashion, before or after the dinner and show.
