Valentine's Day 2017 goals content report

It's well overdue, but finally I'm here with the goals content report for the Valentine's Day themed quest which was released as part of the weekly update 10 days ago.

My tardiness is due to some serious scrimping when it comes to appliance buying. It's been the same for the last couple of goal sets, but my lack of willingness to invest in a number of each of the cookers is slowing my progress through the tasks considerably.

Having purchased just two Charming Grills and three Charming Ovens, I was able to avoid overspending on these goals, but at the same time it does mean a much longer process - I only finished the final step this morning!

At least I'm done, and that means I can offer some thoughts on the goals. As was the case with the cabin themed goals in January, this is a 15 day challenge which is shorter than what we've become used to over the years. Also add in the eight day effort last month and it does appear as if Storm8 are moving away from the traditional month long goals.

Game update: 15/02/17

This week's update is just about as America-centric as they come, with a tribute to Presidents' Day.

Notification for Presidents' Day update

Presidents' Day is on the third Monday of February, and so this year lands on the 20th, this coming Monday. It is a federal holiday in the US, and honours George Washington, the first president of the United States.

Apologies to US readers for including that background - here in the UK we don't tend to do patriotic holidays!

Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you are celebrating a rock solid long-standing relationship, have found a new love or are still a cherished member of the singleton community, take some time to enjoy a blend of wonderful Restaurant Story diners, who just so happen to be not only blog readers but also great neighbours of mine!

A Quilted Café

If you don't find love here you won't find love anywhere! Regular readers will be familiar by now with the famous quilt woven from all manner of tables which stands as one of the iconic landmarks in the game. And yet it is little more than a backdrop at present, with some truly brilliant combinations of decor in front grabbing the attention.
