DOT COM DINING A Look At San Gabriel Valley Restaurants by


Looking for a Special Dinner for Your Valentine?


By Bill Coburn


Before we get into Valentine’s Day stuff, a couple places I called about Valentine’s Day asked me to tell you about their Mardi Gras festivities.  Dockside Grill in West Covina (626) 915-FISH (3474) will be celebrating Fat Tuesday on February 8th, with tequila and margarita specials, 99 cent fish tacos and oyster shooters and live entertainment by Double Shot.  Frank and Joe’s Southern Smokehouse in Monrovia, (626) 357-1616, is also celebrating Mardi Gras, but on Saturday, February 5th.  They’ll have live music, fun and games, a deejay and live bands, pre-sale tickets are $15, or $40 if you want the all-you-can-eat buffet.  Ticket prices will be higher at the door.
