Sick of it all? Head to the Norfolk for trivia and $12 steaks on Wednesday Feburary 14. Bring your partner, or fly solo. They suggest booking a table if you want to sign up your trivia team (quiz starts at 7.30pm). Plus, they'll be serving up cute anti-Valentine's cookies. To warm your cold, cold heart.
