The baby sitter is booked overnight and dinner reservations are set at Fig & Olive (their Pre-Fix Valentine’s Day menu has some delicious entrees) for 6. BAE is picking you up, after work, for a much-needed night out on the town and you’re pulling out all the stops. Underneath the dress that hugs your curves just right is a set of fresh undergarments. You’ve doused yourself in the perfume that makes him or her say yum, and your lipstick is poppin’. Here’s your ultimate Black-owned guide to setting the mood on the ultimate lover’s holiday.
